Who is this "someone"?As someone has mentioned already, the safety controls have been developed by the same people that made the Boeing 737 Max safety software.......
Unless it was a turbo the 2019 had the conventional and very reliable 6 speed auto.I've driven it (2019 Exclaim) and the transmission didn't really bother me. My concern is reliability and premature clutch wear which is NOT covered by warranty.
I was told by a friend who is a Hyundai tech to avoid anything with a D.C.T.It was the turbo. It felt fine driving, my main concern was reliability over the long term or if the issues with the DCT were in the minority.
True that!Designed and built in-house, the IVT is Kia’s version of a continuously variable transmission.
The IVT is paired to the company’s Nu 2-liter four-cylinder engine, which will develop 150ps and 178Nm.
The 2-liter can also be bolted to a 6-speed manual transmission.
the only clutch not covered under warranty is on the manual transmission except for the first 12 months or 12,000 miles. All internal components of the DCT transmission are covered for 10 yrs or 100k miles (if you are the first owner) just the same as the regular 6-spd auto - they are both sealed units.I've driven it (2019 Exclaim) and the transmission didn't really bother me. My concern is reliability and premature clutch wear which is NOT covered by warranty.
