Automatic Shifting Problems

3456 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?:(

Thats another of the issues I have experienced. My gripe with the dealership now is if any of these issues if going unfixed are going to cause any permanent damage to the engine or tranny. These hard shift and high revs can't be all that good for it.
Schedule an appointment with your dealer to have them look at it -- establish a record that you are concerned about an issue. Be polite each time you bring it in, that way if something goes wrong they can't say you caused it...
