2013 Kia Soul Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Soul? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Soul’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Soul's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 Soul’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Kia. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
