I’m willing to bet there is a limiter somewhere within the system. The tires on the EX and SX are rated for 130 mph or 210 km/h, (H speed rating see here Tire Tech Information - How to Read Speed Rating, Load Index & Service Descriptions) thus I highly doubt KIA would allow for these cars to go any faster and risk the liability of a blow out at 210 + km/h. I’m not saying the forte can’t go faster just that it’s unlikely in stock form.Ok so lets rephrase the thread to I got my car up to 130 but then backed down. There is no limiter on the cars. The shut off is when you let your foot off the gas. If you do not have your car set up for those speeds don't go that fast plain and simple.
