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 assume it's still under warrantee and you have Kia Roadside Assistance (5 years). So, I would drive it to the dealer. If ya get stuck, contact Kia for a tow.

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.
