Are you having issues with your rpms going up and down like crazy while driving and it reviving up and down while driving. Sometimes my steering is difficult when this happens. This happens every day when I drive. My Rio is a 2019. I just got it in June. And they told me when I bought it was a cvt engine. I just found out this past Monday it isn’t a cvt. I hate I left Honda after 6 yrs for kia. I made a big mistake :’(
