2012 Kia Soul Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Kia Soul

Your Soul’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Soul and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Kia Soul to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Kia's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Kia Soul 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 help repair all of your 2012 Kia Soul drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Kia Soul may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Kia Soul drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2012 Kia Soul drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
