Niro PHEV 2019
Less than 300 miles on new Niro PHEV and we started getting an occasional VERY loud bang that sounds like the transmission slamming into gear (sometimes loud enough that scares the s#*t out of me). It usually happens starting from a full stop but I think it has also happened at coasting speeds, though not always under acceleration. Sometimes happened in the first few miles of driving for the day, sometimes after 10 or 20 miles. The first time it almost sounded like a stuck brake pad, and sometimes more loud than other times, but now really sounds like transmission problem. In our first week of ownership, it has happened maybe 10 times, but I cannot reliably replicate it to present to the service department. They claim they dont know what it could be... anyone else have something similar?
