2015 Kia Sportage Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2015 Kia Sportage

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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2015 Kia Sportage, 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.

What Are Kia Sportage Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2015 Kia Sportage drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Sportage might need driveshaft repair if you notice 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Sportage doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2015 Kia Sportage? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
