Why is Your 2018 Stinger’s Transmission So Important?

They're often easy to notice. 2018 Kia Stinger transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Kia Stinger transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Stinger at all.

2018 Kia Stinger Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Stinger's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 Stinger’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Kia, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
