  1. 5G 2022+ Sportage
    Hey everyone! Received my 2023 Sportage Hybrid SX-Prestige on June 19. Had to put an order in about a month earlier so didn’t take too long to arrive. Also got it at MSRP which was nice. Swapped my 2019 Honda Insight for it. Anyway, just seeing if anyone else has had the issue of an almost lag...
  2. 3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I own a 2012 Kia Sportage 6-speed manual with 85K miles. The vehicle emits a soft chirping noise, similar to the sound of a cricket, when accelerating. The noise immediately stops when the clutch is depressed and returns when the clutch is released and the accelerator is depressed. The sound...
  3. Kia Carnival & Sedona 2015+
    Hello, I have a 2017 Sedona LX we bought used in August. My wife was telling me when we bought it that it would occasionally shift hard from 1st to 2nd gear, but it doesn't always happen. I've driven it myself many times, been in it while she drove many times, even took a 600 mile trip in it and...
  4. Shuma & Spectra (1997-2003)
    I have an automatic 2007 Spectra with 3, 2, and L settings. Say I'm driving on the highway and slam my shifter from D down to L. Will the TCU attempt to downshift to L and blow up the engine, or will it refuse a shift that would redline? I haven't been able to find any documentation about this...
  5. 4G (2011+) Optima
    My car was mid engine swap when I got the recall letter for engine issues late last summer. I called but there was nothing they would do since I didn’t have the sensor installed yet. I finally got the engine fully replaced, but now the transmission isn’t working. The car was at an upward tilt at...

  12. Kia Carnival & Sedona 2015+
    Hey all- I'm not even sure what to call this problem. Sometimes the dashboard display, where it indicates which gear you're in, will go blank. Just an empty circle where the 'D' should be. The van still drives, but you can definitely feel a difference in the responsiveness of the...

  17. Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    '07 Kia Sedona - Almost immediately after left turns, the van either revs too high between gears, or (on larger slow turns) doesn't shift at all and engine hesitates hard (almost feels like it shuts off and brakes with the drivetrain) while briefly illuminating dash lights: Parking Brake...
