 Description of the problemDiscovered several days after almost having accident, kia was equipped with "smart brake" with no warning from dealer . If you happen to have light pressure on accelerator & brake, you cannot accelerate again until you take your foot completely off accelerator pedal . I discovered this about 2 days after purchasing vehicle as i tried to enter us 19 a 6 lane highway; lucky there was a center turn lane or i would have collided with a 18 wheel sand truck and a sure death . Took me several days of driving vehicle to diagnosis problem .. I have driven approx 55 yrs and no accident so my method of driving using both feet has proven safe for me .. I reported this to kia of lagrange, ga. And ""tried to get them to note this problem on service record " as i feel it definitely a safety issue ! I want this on record in the event this safety brake causes me to have a accident .. And rest assured i will file a legal suit which i also told this dealer service department
