 Description of the problemHit my brakes going roughly 30mpg (i was in heavy traffic on the tollway with lots of braking and going for several minutes already), the abs was triggered as the car was making the jerking/thumping (however you describe feel of abs), i should have had enough space to stop, but my car was accelerating it seemed at the same time, i hit a car in front of me, and it continued, lurched forward and hit the car a second time all while the brake (only) was being depressed. That finally stopped the car. The other driver thought i was hit from behind too since there were two hits... But i felt the lurching and also there is no damage to the back of my car, proving it was my car. This is dangerous!!! After reading online i see many complaints of kia's lurching and accelerating when the brakes are applied. Many accidents reported while parking and the car accelerates so quickly it jumps a curb, hits a tree, or another car or other such incidents. It is clear after searching "kia sorento 2013 accelerating while braking at the same time", there are lots of reports on car gurus. Com of this dangerous defect.
