Hi everyone, I bought a 2013 CPO kia forte koupe Sx in the year of 2016. It is a manual 6 speed. Its been serviced regularly, over 25 times, and I have the gold "wrap around" warranty as well.

I am worried about my car's maintenance right now though. Unfortunately, its acceleration is incredibly sluggish, and it gives off a bad smell after driving. The clutch seems to have good pressure though.

I am worried that I will have to repair the clutch, a $2k job - but I have had a service manager tell me it may be a brake problem.

Would anyone be willing to share their stories and brainstorm with me here?

Its very possible that it is the clutch. My rpms and the sound of the exhaust climbs but the acceleration does not. Like I said, the clutch pedal is not lowered any. There is a plate for my foot when I'm not on yhe clutch. I have also been driving stick since 2012.

I am hoping I may be low on dot3 or literally anything else other than a 2 thousand dollar clutch replacement. I am looking for experiences from other 10' - 13' Koup owners.
