2022 KIA SELTOS Transmission Problems

Posted by Howard Gutman | Apr 30, 2023 | 0 Comments

The 2022 Kia Seltos has been in the market for quite some time now, but some owners have reported transmission-related issues with their cars. The complaints are a continuation of the problems that plagued the 2021 Kia Seltos models.

One of the major problems reported by the 2022 Kia Seltos owners is the transmission overheating. Several owners have reported incidents of the transmission overheating, causing the car to lose power and become stranded. The transmission is a critical component of any vehicle, and an overheating transmission can lead to significant problems, including complete failure of the transmission.

One owner from Pennsylvania filed an NHTSA complaint stating that the transmission of their Kia Seltos started overheating in traffic just six weeks after they purchased the car. The owner demanded a fix or a refund, but Kia did not accept responsibility for the problem. This is just one of the many complaints of transmission overheating that have been filed by 2022 Kia Seltos owners.

Transmission failure has also been reported by some owners of the 2021 Kia Seltos models. A report by CarComplaints.com shows that some owners of the 2021 Kia Seltos experienced problems with their transmission, which caused the car to stop shifting properly. Some owners reported that the car would not go into any gear, while others reported that the car's engine would rev up uncontrollably. The problem was so severe that some owners had to get their car towed to the dealership for a transmission replacement.

In some cases, Kia dealerships have been unable to resolve these issues, leaving owners without their cars for extended periods. In one instance, an owner requested a courtesy car while their car was being repaired, but Kia denied the request, despite the car having a major manufacturing defect.

Transmission problems can be very frustrating and expensive to fix. If you are experiencing any transmission problems with your Kia Seltos, you should take it to an authorized Kia dealership immediately. Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal law that protects consumers against defective products, Kia may be required to repair or replace your transmission at no cost to you.

If you are experiencing problems with your 2022 KIA Seltos and have taken your vehicle to a KIA dealership for repair multiple times without success, you may be entitled to legal recourse under the lemon law or warranty.

Consider potential claims, including:

  • Deceptive Practices Claim: If you've been misled or deceived during the purchase or repair process, you may have grounds for this claim.
  • Magnuson-Moss Act Claim: Federal law safeguards consumers who purchase products with warranties, ensuring fairness and remedies for defects.
  • Breach of Implied Warranty Claim: Your vehicle should meet certain expectations of quality and performance, and if it doesn't, you may have a case under this claim.
  • Lemon Law Claim: Is your vehicle a constant source of frustration due to defects? Lemon laws provide recourse for consumers in such situations.
  • Breach of Express Warranty Claim: Manufacturers must uphold the promises made in their warranties. If they fail to do so, you may have grounds for this claim.
