I guess this thread is more for KiaTech and the Tech guys out there. Has anyone heard any reason from KIA itself on why the first year model has a 5 sp A/T and the 2011 will have a 6 sp A/T? It seems to me from the forum that the 5 sp has a lot of issues with shifting etc. So maybe that it the reason for the change. Makes me more interested in a 2011 than a 2010. Also you guys who work for KIA dealerships, have you heard a release date for the 2011 KOUP?

My wifes new sorento has the 6 speed trans and my forte koup has the 5 speed and i think i like to 6 speed alot better and it is the same engine mine has a few mods and i think that hers seems to be quicker to accelerate from a stop!!
2.4l exactly the same engine but is rated one more hp than mine was stock !!!
I agree but i am still waiting for to 2.o turbo that i keep hearing about !!!!
