Automatic Shifting Problems

3448 Views 16 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  dwells
I just purchaced my first KIA, FORTE. Great car so far except for a minor, intermitted shifting problem. Whe car is up to normal temp, driving for at least a half hour, the 2-3 & 3-4 upshift hits hard, slight engine RPM surge. This has happened about 10 times.
It has been doing it since new. Now has 1500 miles on it. Dealer says they will check it out on our first service.
Has any one else having this problem?:(

I have 4800 on my sedan with the 5spd and it is smooth as silk, I really like the use of the manual option, it gives it alot more fun to drive, but I have noticed that if I forget to shift it does it for me, must be getting to old haha
Haha I'm 19 and i love that feature, yet I too forget to shift every once and a while....I think its cause my brain doesn't feel a clutch pedal so it say "oh relax you dont have to shift haha" although sometimes i miss my ol' manual sunfire :(
