One owner drove the Seltos GTX+ for around 100 kms and afterward he got the overheating message on the MID. Another purchaser who has the DCT variant has encountered a similar issue in only half a month of purchase. DCT transmissions have been popular choice for the car enthusiasts and we are familiar with the issues of the dual clutch gearboxes.

Likewise, the individual was continually driving in the ECO mode and in spite of that, the car returned low fuel economy. The company claims to offer 16 kmpl for the GTX DCT. Likewise, there are a number of other owners complaining for the same.

An owner of Kia Seltos Diesel HTK 6-speed AT has talked about her issues. In the long post, she explains that in only 20 days of purchasing, the infotainment began going off. While jumping from dealer to dealer, she finally managed to get the vehicle fixed following 2-3 days. However, in just some time of driving again, the problem came again. Then the owner also experienced the white smoke and bad smell coming from the AC. Every one of these issues are being looked in only 20 days of the vehicle being bought. It is worth noting that this is not just the only bad experience to which we came across. From faulty mechanicals to malfunctioning electronics, the owners have issued a number of issues with their Seltos.
4. No Response Towards Accident Affected Cars
Many clients are confronting issue with the Kia administration focuses. One of the owner got into a mishap within 3 days of purchasing the vehicle. Be that as it may, it has been more than 2 months with no reaction from the Kia administration regarding the repairs of the affected vehicle. Additionally, another buyer had his Seltos parked at the Kia workshop for 15 days due to lack of replacement parts.
5. Wrong Delivery Time Period
A lot of buyers have complained that they have still not got their Seltos till now. For one buyer, it has been more than 100 days since he booked the GTX DCT variation and there is no update about the delivery. Someone else has a similar issue and it has been 93 days since the booking. The purchasers imagine that there is an preference system going on with the Kia businesses.
With all this being said, we still believe that the Kia Seltos is a great vehicle, let down by inattentive administration.
