In Drive, Car moves in Reverse!
Brand new Kia Niro PHEV 2019, I've had it 2 weeks. My car was parked. I got in, turned it on, put it in Drive ... and it started to drive backwards. I thought I was going crazy. I put the car in park again, I put it in Drive (I double checked to make sure) and ... it drove backwards again!
Put the car in park. Turned off the engine. Waited a couple minutes. Turned it on ... finally it drove forward.
Took it to Kia dealership, they ran a diagnostic, couldn't find anything wrong with it, couldn't recreate the problem. They reset the transmission.
I'm both highly amused by this, as well as concerned - if this went wrong, what else will go wrong? And what happens if it's in more dangerous circumstances? Has anyone else experienced this? More importantly, do you know WHY this happens, and how to fix it?
