How do you tell which on you have? And is one better than the other? Thanks
Mostly software related I am told by KIA Direct.. Had mine updated today.Looking at info online CVT and IVT are the same. IVT is KIA's name for the CVT. That transmission has had a lot of problems. It was my reason for buying a 2019 Hyundai Elantra with a normal 6 speed Transmission. 2019 Kia Forte essentials: A facelift is all it needed
And I was told by a Hyundai tech 3 months ago he had personally replaced over 10 in 2020 Hyundai Elantras. Here is a link showing 2020 Elantra transmission issues. Look at 2019 and there are no transmission issues. 2020 Hyundai Elantra Power Train ProblemsMostly software related I am told by KIA Direct.. Had mine updated today.
Does that matter? It's one car out of how many? I have a 2009 Sonata with 2015k on it drives excellent.. but how have blown engines? I also have a 2011 Kia Forte Koup SX with 140k miles. But a friends just blew at 98k miles. That KIA/ Hyundai IVT is well known for problems as are DCT's made by KIA/Hyundai.Buddy of mine has a '19 Forte with IVT, uses it for Uber, has 178k no issues
Like with anything, google is too much fresh air bad for you? Dont race the car don't treat it like sh*t and it should last, if not, thats why we bought Kia at least for me, value and huge warrantythat's the right attitude. While there are some problems with the CVT aka IVT, most do not develop problems.
