Are there allot of 2.0L 5spd sticks without cruise out there? That is what this ECM reprogramming posted fix is for. Was my impression the stick cars were having a wide spread mechanical shifting issue. And a few also had the intake blow back at times. This fix is for the intake popping on 2.0L stick non cruise cars. And not the 2.0L auto trans cars that have a hiccup in shifting at times 1-2 or 3-2? And not sure really how many of those are non cruise cars.

In Australia we only get the 2L not the 2.4 but all cars here get the cruise control as standard fitment. In the US and Canada it seems to me like there are more lower spec base cars available.

I purchased my Forte EX 5 speed manual transmission with cruise control in July 2009. From the get go, I experienced a problem with the shifting from 1-2 mostly, but it also happens from 2-3. No smooth shifting for me. I've always driven stick shift cars, so I know the problem is NOT behind the wheel. I reported the issue to my dealer who told me it was not a transmission problem but rather a computer problem. Said it might get better with time and with more mileage on (it has about 6000 km now). In January I took it in for a reprogramming and it got WORSE, so I asked that the original programming be put back. Which helped, but the problem is still very much there.

I love my car with all its features and great looks, but my driving experience is very disappointing. I do a lot of city driving so I have to shift all the time. I've read a lot of comments on many forums and the issue was not mentioned that many times. I asked my dealer to replace the computer since it's not ALL the Forte EX five speed manual that have the problem, insisting that it means that if SOME cars don't have the problem, all computers are not identical, but the mechanic said they don't do that and it wouldn’t fix the problem. I still don't get it but hey, I'm no mechanic, right? So I have owned my car for 7 months now, going on one year, and I'm afraid, since not many owners have the problem, that the company is not getting enough pressure to fix it. I understand that my dealer can do so much and has to wait for the company to find a solution. I'm wondering what I could do to speed things up. Would writing to the company help?

Anyone else has the same problem?

Honestly, the service actions fixed my problem. However, my problem was so infrequent that it couldn't be replicated which leads me to believe that yours is a different issue altogether. Just keep the pressure on the dealer. I'm sure your issue will be resolved.

I couldn't shift as smoothly at first in the EX, but I've had that with any different manual shifter. I got used to it very quickly, and I doubt that you're the problem. Especially after 7 months.

What happens is, it's like there's not enough gas that is injected (I'm sorry, I don't really know how to explain it in English - believe me, I had a hard time trying to explain it in French too!) and therefore there's a kind of hiccup when I shift. I think the RPM is too low. Also, some times. the car will barely start, it's like I should press de gas pedal to get it going. That is a relatively new but persistant problem. I believe it's all related.

Anyway, like you said, I'll keep asking my dealer to find a solution. Thanks for your reply.

Your problem would not be the same as the one in the TSB ,it only covers cars without cruise fitted, but just keep pressure on the dealer or even contact KIA Canada directly with the problem and see what they say. I agree when you say all ECMs are not the same and yours may be faulty and reprogramming won't help if it is.

The thing that I don't understand with this particular TSB is, aren't all Forte EX equipped with the cruise control feature? I don't recall having to choose whether I wanted it or not... So why is there a TSB especially for cars fitted without it?
