 Description of the problemI own a 2014 kia soul, purchased directly from the dealer with 12 miles on it. Car is currently at 89,000 miles and i was informed by my dealer that the converter has a build up from everyday use and must be replaced for 2100. 00. Previous kia souls had a recall for this same problem prior to 2014. Basically when accelerating i felt as if the car was struggling when trying to increase speed. The car would kick a little while in motion as it struggled from 20mph and up. The rpms increased between 4 and 5 at times when accelerating. I also felt when accelerating my pedal was nearly all the way down just to give the car some gas. I do a lot of highway miles and normally have to stay to the right lane until my car is able to pick up speed. This jerking would happen every time i need to accelerated. The kick back became noticable about a month ago. It started very light and has only progressed since
