 Description of the problemThis problem happened 2 times this week & on 2 separate days while i was driving & since i only drive this car once or twice a week this has me concerned.. The car started ok and drove for a couple of miles just fine when suddenly the car felt like i was trying to drive while the car was in neutral & even with my foot was on the gas pedal the car wasn't going anywhere.. I pulled off the road to get out of the flow of traffic & tried to put the shift lever in a different gear but it was stuck in drive even when my foot was firmly on the brake pedal, so i tried to 'jiggle' it a little from left to right but the shift lever wouldn't really move so i just sat there.. After a few minutes i made an attempt to safely pull out into traffic & the car hesitated a little but then drove fine.. When this happened the first time this week i ignored it and treated it as a 'one time only' issue, but then it happened a second time so i got concerned and made an appointment with citrus kia for 3/15/19 to have this checked out.. I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but felt i should report it and will update this after the kia dealer has a look at it..
