2022 Kia Niro Powertrain Issues

Model Years


Those who own or lease a 2022 Kia Niro should know that a number of customer complaints have arisen in recent months. The bulk of these safety concerns involve transmission and powertrain issues, and Kia customers are asking for clear answers and permanent solutions to these recurring problems. So far, the manufacturer has yet to issue a single safety recall impacting this vehicle, leaving customers without the fixes they need to feel safe driving their vehicles.

One owner of a 2022 Kia Niro stated that their parking brake repeatedly fails to engage fully, which has led to disconcerting incidents in which the driver exits the vehicle and it lurches backward for several feet before coming to a stop. This Kia customer has expressed concern over this recurring parking brake failure. Other Kia customers have described similar incidents, with this issue almost causing collisions or injuries because of the ineffective parking brake. Other reports of struggling transmissions that emit strange noises or fail to engage properly continue to arise as well. For now, Kia customers are still waiting for direct answers and effective guidance on how to resolve these powertrain issues.
