KIA FORTE 2010 car safety problem was reported on May 15, 2010.KIA FORTE 2010, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i just bought a kia forte 5 speed manual transmission. so far when the car had 425 miles on it, the gas pedal has acted like it was depressed--the engine revved up very high, but my foot was not on the pedal. my daughter was also driving and it also happened to her, it felt as if the gas pedal was stuck. i checked to see if there was anything covering the pedal---maybe the rug or something but there was nothing there. i took it back to the dealer and they found nothing wrong with the computer diagnostics they ran and sent me home. the car has about 800 miles on it now and i haven't experienced any other such problems, yet. i am an experienced manual transmission driver and i do not accept that this was driver error. the times this happened to me my right foot was completely off the gas pedal and my left foot was depressing the clutch fully. *tr.Mileage was 425 miles.

Kia Forte 2010 Power Train Automatic Transmission Review #10389799

KIA FORTE 2010 car safety problem was reported on Feb 16, 2011.KIA FORTE 2010, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . my 2010 kia forte ex sedan, 5 speed automatic has a transmission problem that could definitely lead to injuries or death. this is a recurring problem that can happen any time, but mostly occurs during or after going up a significant hill, but may happen on level ground. there's 23,000 miles on my kia and it's under full warranty. i took this to the dealer, they could not find a problem or duplicate the problem; they suggested flushing the transmission for $150, so i did that. it did not help. it stopped for about a week, then it started seizing up again, today (3/10/2011) it seized twice on my wife. what it does is not actually stop the car, but "freeze" you at one speed, typically either 20mph or 45-50mph it takes up to 30 seconds to shift, and if you are pulling out in front of traffic and it seizes and won't let you go beyond 10-20mph it's very dangerous. the dealer says they won't have a replacement loaner until next week, so we'll wait. i'm in northern ut. it's happening in dry warm (50-60 degree) weather. we have not driven the car severely, this should definitely not happen. the kia owner's manual says to inspect the transmission fluid at 40,000 and only change then if needed, so the very expensive fluid should be good. this is some unique fluid you have to buy from the dealer, normal auto parts stores don't have it. other drivers are reporting this with the kia forte ex also ( http://www.kia-forums.com/kia-forte-cerato-td-koup-discussion/56086-new-transmission-needed-6900-miles.html). i am concerned about our safety while driving a car i can't predict when it will seize up and not shift. letting your foot off the gas does not help. it does have to be well warmed up to have this difficulty, at least 10 minutes of driving. thanks for your attention to this matter! *tr.Mileage was 22500 miles.

KIA FORTE 2010 car safety problem was reported on June 23, 2014.KIA FORTE 2010, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . i recently had brake problems on my 2010 kia forte. it was not due to brake wear or any of the normal brake problems. the problem was all my brakes seized up and the rear ones in particular heated up to the point where they were close to failing. the dealer said it may have not occurred, if the car had been driven more miles daily yet no further information could be provided on the brake issue. i live in an area that has many classic cars and my wife?s own aunt owned a car even though she could not drive it in her later years, so it would be available to those who would drive her to appointments and elsewhere. as long as a vehicle is being driven daily, which this was, i don?t believe this potentially dangerous problem should have occurred. kia motors also did not know why this happened and could provide no explanation. i am writing to you because of my concerns of possible brake failure and that the brake parts supplied on the kia apparently do not contain any anti-corrosive materials of any type and the intense heat caused my brake fluid to become contaminated. from service order: customer states when driving sometimes right and left wheel breaks get very hot; inspected front and rear brakes found pads are stuck in the anchors and needs slide service while performing service found rear pads got so hot they are separating and need to be replaced; performed front and rear caliper slide service and replaced rear pads all working as intended at this time. flush old fluid from system, check linkage and hoses, bleed air from system, road test; performed brake fluid flush as needed, flush contaminated fluid, installed fresh fluid and bled system as required, road tested ok *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10000 miles.

KIA FORTE 2010 car safety problem was reported on Aug 10, 2009.KIA FORTE 2010, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with AIR BAGS . just a few days after purchasing this vehicle new from the back in aug 2009, the drivers air bag light came on while driving. there was no accident involved. i returned it to the dealer and was told the problem was fixed. since that first visit, i continued to return to the dealership with the same problem at least 5 times within the year. i was told parts were replaced, but the problem kept returning. when i sent a letter to the headquarters, i was contacted and told i would just have to keep returning the car to the dealer for testing and repairs, but i wasn't guaranteed a loaner during the repair. i figured at some point they would just start charging me for every visit, without completely fixing the problem. up to that point it wasn't costing me for the diagnosis, but it was costing me in time away from work, and rental fees. since i lived in texas at the time the safety inspection did not include the air bag light. however, i just moved to virginia and theirs does, so now i have a car i can't register, hence can't drive. i made an appt with a local dealer to see if they can resolve this (pending). however, i don't know if i will be charged for the repairs, or if they will be able to fix this since others have failed in the past. i wasn't aware of this site or i would have filed this complaint way back then. but from reading other complaints, i see now i'm not the only one having this problem. with the recent recall of malfunctioning/defective airbags by thousands of manufacturers, i'm surprised this model is not on the list. i think a review is necessary. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 450 miles.
