2016 Kia Soul EV Drivetrain Service

2016 Kia Soul EV Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Soul EV's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2016 Kia Soul EV to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Kia's recommendations.

What Are Kia Soul EV Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2016 Kia Soul EV drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Soul EV might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Kia Soul EV drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2016 Kia Soul EV drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • How often should I come in for Kia Soul EV differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
