VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

6/24/2019 - COVINA, CA
I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY. AFTER SLOWED DOWN AND STOPPED COMPLETELY, SUDDENLY IT LOSE POWER TO RUN. TRYING TO STEP DEEPER THE GAS PEDAL, BUT NO REACTION AT ALL. AFTER TURN OFF AND TURN ON ENGINE FEW TIMES, IT CAN RUN AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME, THE REAL PROBLEM OCCUR. THE ENGINE SOUNDS SO LOUD..IT'S HYBRID CAR SUPPOSED TO SO QUIET (THAT'S WHAT SOUNDS USUALLY). LATER ON, I FOUND OUT HOW TO STILL CAN DROVE IT, BUT WITH HIGH RISK SUDDENLY LOSE POWER ON THE STREET. LATER FOUND OUT, WHEN THE CAR IN MOTION, THE HYBRID SYSTEM DIDN'T WORKED COMPLETELY, AND THE TRANSMISSION SOUND VERY ROUGH. EVERY TIME WHEN COME TO BRAKE OR WANT TO SLOW DOWN, CAN FEELS OBVIOUSLY AND HEARD THE TRANSMISSION IS VERY ROUGH MAKING CLUTCH LOUD SOUNDS. THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM ALSO TOTALLY NOT FUNCTION. WHEN IN STATIONARY, VERY FIRST WHEN STARTED THE ENGINE, MADE LOUD SOUNDS ON THE ENGINE, AND CAN'T REVERSED OR MOVE FORWARD, JUST STAYED IN PLACE. THE DASHBOARD DISPLAY "CHECK HYBRID SYSTEM". AND ON THE MIDDLE SCREEN DISPLAYING, "LOW VOLTAGE DC / DC CONVERTER".

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

1/31/2019 - BROWNS SUMMIT, NC
I WENT TO A KIA DEALER FOR AN OIL CHANGE AND WAS THEN INFORMED THERE WERE 3 OPEN RECALLS ON MY VEHICLE. I RECEIVED NO NOTIFICATION BY MAIL, EMAIL OR PHONE. THE REPAIRS WERE TO TAKE 5 HOURS. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT TO DO THE REPAIRS AND LEFT THE CAR THERE THE ENTIRE DAY AND HAD TO BE SHUTTLED 20 MILES BACK AND FORTH TWICE THAT DAY. THEY WERE NOT COMPETENT ENOUGH TO ORDER THE PARTS BUT WERE CONTENT TO HAVE ME WASTE MY ENTIRE DAY AND TELL ME TO COME BACK AGAIN NEXT WEEK. THE INCOMPETENT DEALER IS KIA ON BATTLEGROUND IN GREENSBORO.
