2018 Kia Soul EV Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2018 Kia Soul EV Drivetrain Service

Your Soul EV drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Kia, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Soul EV’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2018 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2018 Kia Soul EV drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Soul EV might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Soul EV doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2018 Kia Soul EV drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
