I've just brought a 2008 ceed estate diesel and it's got no 3rd gear.
When u put it in 3rd nothing happens. Just same as being in neutral.

Anyone else had this. Could it be linkage or fault in the gearbox.

I've been out and checked and linkage all seems OK
So looking like gearbox.

You checked the shift tower? I worked on a VW recently that lost reverse and 3rd gears. I removed the shift knob & trim around the stick and found 3 bushings underneath were missing. Just assuming Kia uses a similar setup here.

Yeah linkage all OK. I can physically put it it 3rd via the gear arm on the gear box and still doesn't engage.
