New Owner Here

Hope everyone is doing well!

Just purchased a 2018 Upland Sport a little over a week ago and so far it seems like a stellar vehicle.

However, i'm not gonna lie, the forum has me a bit worried over the oil burning and transmission issues.

So far, everything appears to be fine, but I feel like I might of made a bad decision.

Can anyone else with a 2018 calm my fears?

Transmission is fine if you have the latest and greatest software update. The oil issue is only on a small amount of vehicles with the 2.4 engine. Mine was a casualty of this and they replaced the short block under warranty. No issues since.

Appreciate the response. Stupid question, but how can I tell if I have the latest software?

You can't tell, but the dealer can. My suggestion is don't even worry about it unless your transmission is doing weird things. Keeping in mind that these 9 speed transmissions are not a typical automatic, so they act kind of weird anyway. Just enjoy it, but check your oil regularly especially during break-in, and add when needed.
