Automatic Shifting Problems

3450 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 figured i would drive the car normaly for the first 1000klms or so before i start using the auto stick. Dose this sound like a good idea to everyone? break it in before i have fun?
Oh! Has antone noticed the car start to perform better as they drive it?
I have 740klms on it now, and it seems to get peppier everyday.
Think i'm just getting more accustom to it?
