2019-2021 Kia and Hyundai Defective Intelligent Variable Transmission Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating various Kia and Hyundai models for defective Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). These models and model years include:

  • 2019-2021 Kia Forte
  • 2020-2021 Kia Soul
  • 2021 Kia Seltos
  • 2021 Hyundai Elantra (SE and SEL trims)
  • 2020 Hyundai Elantra (SE, SEL, Value Edition, Limited trims)
  • 2020-2021 Hyundai Accent (Optional on SE, Standard on SEL and Limited trims);
  • 2021 Hyundai Venue (SE, SEL, and Denim trims)

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 Hyundai and 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.

Does your 2019-2021 Kia Forte, 2020-2021 Kia Soul, 2021 Kia Seltos, 2020-2021 Hyundai Elantra, 2020-2021 Hyundai Accent, or 2021 Hyundai Venue have transmission-related issues?
