2022 Kia Seltos Reliability - Consumer Reports
The Seltos offers roomy versatility for a small SUV, along with excellent fuel economy and an affordable price. Unfortunately, it is let down by a stiff ride and loud cabin. The Seltos, which slots below the Sportage in Kia’s SUV lineup, certainly has its strengths. One asset is how painless it is to get in and out of the cabin, thanks to large door openings and easily accessible front seats.

Reliability

We expect the 2022 Seltos will be much less reliable than the average new car. This prediction is based on data from 2021 models. Select the used car model year to see reported issues with those similar past models.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

For this Rating, we averaged a model’s Overall Reliability for the newest three years, provided the vehicle did not change significantly in that time and hasn’t been redesigned for 2020. We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
