If you read my other thread you know that I just picked up a new Forte SX with auto trans yesterday. Based on my reading the other Kia-forums forum, I knew there was a 2nd to 3rd gear shift problem on some cars. When I test drove the car yesterday I did not experience the problem. I did not test sufficiently. My car has the problem. I talked to the dealer and they told me 'no returns'. I'm not a happy camper.
