Hi there.I have a KIA Sportage 2011 and sometimes the shifting gear from P to R, N or D fails, it jams and I press the brakes hard too, after a few times then it shifts. Could you please tell me what is the problem?

Do you

Thi should be a problem with the shift interlock system. Check and ensure the brake lights are working at all times. Since vehicle is still under warranty, get the dealer to check it for you.
