I had an 05 before this and it had ZERO issues.
My 09 has already had 2 transmissions replaced because of the gear syncro going out and it grinds going into 3rd and 5th gear UNLESS you hold the clutch down for about 3 seconds and hold the shift between gears that long too.

First time it went out at 42,000Km, next was 85,000 km and now it is starting again at 117,000Km.

Has anyone else had this issue with transmission grinding gears?

I think this car personally has something else wrong with it like motor mounts twisted or something out of alignment but KIA says no.

HELP !!!

Learn to shift without the syncros. Then it won't be a problem. I do it 1500 a day.
