 Description of the problemI've been experiencing an transmission issue. I'll be driving along, steadily with speed control set at 70 and all of a sudden my engine and rpm gauge will rev up down shift and then go back to normal. My speed doesn't change, no lights go on, just the rev-ing sound and the gauge goes up it also happening at low speeds as well, it's very alarming to me. I've checked with kia and they're aware of the issue but state that there is currently no recall or alert as to what exactly the problem is, it also entermitting will have no acceleration on take off. Has been back to the kia dealer twice , the last time was told by general manager and service manager and they have no clue , and general manager was very rude and tried to just sale me another vehicle when i decline he got very unprofessional and seemed he was not concerned of the warranty and to take it back to dealer that sold it to me 600 miles away please help
