transmission system error

At 1626 miles, I received the error message "Transmission system error! Check transmission oil immediately".

The problem is that there is no way to check the transmission oil. The dealer could not replicate the error message. They did absolutely nothing to fix the problem. A car with less than 2000 miles should not have transmission problems. I believe that the dual clutch transmission is not reliable. Others with this same problem have needed a new transmission.

Update from Jun 8, 2022: Between 1600 and 2800 miles, this error message has returned several times. Kia doesn't seem to have a clue as to how to fix it. I initiated Lemon Law process on the vehicle. I don't think I can trust this car or another one like it.
