2021 Kia Sorento SX AWD Gravity Gray 2012 Kia Sorento LX AWD 3.5V6 Dark Cherry
Is anybody else wondering how this is all going to look when the snow flies in a few months? Yikes! I’m starting to wonder if this issue is the traction control (I understand that a TC alert pops up) or a pedestrian avoidance issue (thinking it sees a pedestrian). I truly have no idea; I’m just pondering the possibilities.Hello All,
Vehicle: 2021 Sorento SX
I've had vehicle for only 2 months and 1 day. So far I'm enjoying my vehicle EXCEPT for this issue I've experienced twice since ownership (once last month Feb and yesterday 23 March).
Scenario: In traffic at a stop either needing to make a turn or just accelerate forward. Accelerator does not respond to the pressure being applied and the vehicle barely moves even with pedal nearly to the floor (like crawls 1-2MPH) to get across the intersection and then it suddenly performs as if nothing happened. This is very dangerous as the vehicle is almost practically stalled and all you can see is oncoming traffic approaching... Wondering if perhaps the engine auto-shut off at stop gets confused or drive by wire technology / sensor for this vehicle is funky?
Not sure if anyone has experienced this. Unfortunately, not a simple issue to replicate and unsure of the methods for scanning and obtaining diagnostics.
Dealer hasn't heard of the issue yet, so I'll have to take it in, but thinking this could pop up on other vehicles. Very scary and very dangerous.
