2021 Kia Seltos SX AWD Will not go into reverse. Forward driving is a little sketchy like shifting a long time to get to the next gear.

Question: would anybody know if it would be safe to drive 20 miles to the dealer?

Question: as anybody else had this problem? And if if so, could it be a computer issue? Or does the transmission have to be replaced?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

I would err on the side of caution and see if Kia roadside assistance will tow it. They give US customers 40 miles to a dealership for free

Wow! Did not know that - says in the manual they will tow it to the closest dealer - thanks hope this is true - I will call roadside assistance now. I will reply when I get an answer and keep this post updated for those that may have the same problem.

Update on the 2021 Seltos four-wheel-drive turbocharged 1.6 L engine.
First of all I would like to thank everyone that responded and supplied the information below for anyone else that may have this problem.
The problem was the gear for reverse in the clutch actuator assembly. Obviously, with the situation of getting parts for any vehicle these days it has to come from Korea. So who knows what the time-frame would be, I’m guessing anywhere between two weeks in a month.

Getting ready to turn 42,000 miles. No problems so far.
42,000! Do you commute to the moon? Car has only been out for 18 months. You better order your new car replacement soon! You might get it when your present car turns 100,000.
