2009 Kia Sportage Drivetrain Repair

2009 Kia Sportage Drivetrain Service

Your Sportage’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. It’s one of your Sportage’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Kia Sportage, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Kia's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Kia Sportage 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2009 Kia Sportage drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Kia Sportage may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Kia Sportage.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2009 Kia Sportage? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
