2018 Kia Soul Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Soul’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Soul is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Soul transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Kia Soul’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
