Seltos (2019-2020)

I brought my seltos sports + in late May. The transmission has overheated when reversing uphill to my garage, also has a smell when this happens, it has also surged on acceleration a couple of times. Is anyone else having theses problems .??

Hi. Im not sure if that model you have has Turbo engine and the other transmission that goes with it.
Mine is a 2 litre with CVT (Kia calls it IVT)
But have heard of ridiculous overheat issues with the one that comes with the Tubo Seltos.
In the USA there are a fair number of complaints regarding it of just overheating driving in moderate traffic!
Here is a link to a USA Seltos site. You shouldn't have too much trouble finding the thread on it.
Really hope you get it fixed as buying a new car with issues really, totally sucks!
Good luck.

This is a dry dual clutch. It is sensitive to higher torque situations such as stop start traffic and reversing (since it is a lower gear) and your specific driving circumstances. If these problems continue I would get rid of it because the gearbox doesn’t suit you. A normal auto has a torque multiplier from stop and will be much smoother.

Hi. Sorry to hear you have issues. The models as I understand are considered or called the 2019 & 2020 models. Mine just snuck into the 2021 version. No recall on my Vin.
Here is a list if it helps for you or others of the recall Vin numbers. Download the list, then on your phone tap on Q search and start typing in your Vin. If its on the list it will pull it up.
I really hope your issue gets sorted soon as buying a new car and having issues really really sucks. All the best getting it sorted as soon as possible.
Heres the recall link.

Hi
Just wanted to know how the air conditioning is. I have a small toddler and I am worried if it will get too hot behind. I live in Melbourne. And am planning to buy seltos 2wd sports plus. It doesn't have rear ducts behind.
Thanks

You can always buy a 12v fan that sits behind the headrest. They are very powerful, but can be noisy. They are really effective since they blow air directly to baby car seat.
