There are several service intervals to keep in mind for your Kia, including intervals that are deemed “major”. During “major” service intervals your transmission will be inspected and serviced. Your Kia transmission should receive service at the following intervals:

  • 30,000 Miles – transmission fluids are flushed and replaced
  • 60,000 Miles- transmission fluids are flushed and replaced
  • 90,000 Miles- transmission fluids are flushed and replaced
