2016 Kia Soul Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 Kia Soul

Your Soul drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. It’s one of your Soul’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 Kia Soul, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Kia's recommendations.

When to Get Kia Soul Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2016 Kia Soul drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Kia Soul may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. 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 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2016 Kia Soul drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
