Granny shifting, and now my shifter linkage is broken... fantastic!
Now I'm stuck in third gear and have to call Kia in the morning.

The only plus to this situation is that I get to drive my father's car until
this is fixed.

I have a video, if you'd like to see what's happening.

If it's anything like my Mazda, you can just get under the hood and snap the cable end back on the transmission. If it needs a cotter pin, pick one up and install it yourself. I know its Kia's responsibility, but it might be better than the hassle of towing / waiting, etc.
