2019-2021 Kia Forte, 2020-2021 Kia Soul, and 2021 Kia Seltos Defective Transmission Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the 2019-2021 Kia Forte, 2020-2021 Kia Soul, and the 2021 Kia Seltos for defective transmissions. Owners report a variety of issues including: erratic tachometer readings; sudden loss of power; inability to shift gears; and inability to accelerate. Cars with as little as 1200 miles have needed replacing of the vehicle’s Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT), which is Kia’s version of the continuously variable transmission. Affected owners may be without their newly-purchased vehicle for over a month, and some owners report that their vehicles have received multiple transmission replacements after the same problems persist.
