Hello, I recently bought a new Kia Sedona diesel automatic and after a v short time the automatic transmission began to be "problematic"..ie it seems to be staying in the lower range of gears for too long - I have to kick it to 40-50 mph to get a smooth drive. It feels and sounds as if I am over-revving it when I take off and/or am driving slow in traffic.
My dealer says this is normal but I cannot agree...surely there must be some adjustment that can be made to remedy this sluggishness??
Any help out there, please?

Kia have issued a recall on their automatic Diesel gearboxes in the UK, check with your local dealer about it.
