WHEN I START MY CAR, THE RPM ACCELERATES HIGH AS IT WILL GO. VERY ANNOYING AND LOUD. IT DOES THIS MOST OF THE TIME SOME TIMES WHEN I COME TO A STOP LIGHT AND PROCEED FORWARD, THE CAR JERKS FORWARD AS I ACCELERATE.

MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AND MY CAR LOSES POWER FAST NO MATTER WHAT SPEED I AM GOING. I PUT MY FOOT ON THE GAS AND THE RPM'S GO UP AND I AM ONLY ABLE TO DRIVE AT A SPEED OF 20MPH. AT TIMES MY CAR WILL DRIVE AT A NORMAL SPEED AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL BE ON .ITS VERY STRANGE. I'VE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY SAID THAT IT NEEDED A NEW CATALYTIC CONVERTER. IT WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY. ONE WEEK LATER THE SAME SYMPTOMS AND ANOTHER OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE OF OVER $1,000.00 AND ANOTHER PART. THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS MONTHS LATER. EACH TIME WITH A DIFFERENT DIAGNOSIS BY THE DEALER. MY MECHANIC DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM WHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED WITH HIS METER AND IT READ ELECTRONIC THROTTLE BODY. I TOLD THIS TO THE DEALER MONTHS AGO AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AGO.

I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY GOING OUT OF TOWN AND HAD THE CRUISE CONTROL SET LIKE I NORMALLY DO WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY CAR DRASTICALLY LOST SPEED FROM 70MPH TO 45MPH ON A VERY BUSY HIGHWAY. I HAD TO SLOWLY MOVE OVER TO THE FAR LANE IN ORDER TO MAKE IT TO A SAFE PLACE TO PULL OVER. I THEN PULLED OVER SHUT THE CAR OFF FOR ABOUT 20 MINS AND TRIED TO COME BACK HOME AND ONCE AGAIN GOT ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN ONCE AGAIN I LOST POWER EVEN THO I'M PRESSING THE GAS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FLOOR AND ITS NOT EVEN TRYING TO GAIN POWER AT ALL. I ALMOST GOT INTO 2 ACCIDENTS ON THE WAY HOME BECAUSE OF THE LOSS OF POWER. I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ON THIS WEBSITE ABOUT THE SAME RECURRING PROBLEMS WITH OTHER KIA AMANTI OWNERS AND THIS PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE FIXED. THIS IS MY ONLY VEHICLE AND I'M SCARED TO DRIVE IT. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS!!!
