The ac condenser froze up therefore I could not start vehicle. It was snowing and freezing and I was stranded for 2 hours. The ac should not be going bad on a 2010 vehicle. I read many reports on this particular problem in the Kia Fortes all years. Well someone could get hurt when there vehicle stops running in the middle of a busy highway!!! this is a problem!!! mechanic told me I could of been driving fast and this could of happened!! someone is going to get hurt!!

The vehicle will sporadically jerk hard when changing gears. I have only ever experienced this same feeling when a transmission was going out. The vehicle was purchased brand new on 06/24/11 from a dealers lot, the vehicle had been used as a demo. The vehicle hard jerked when changing gears, four separate times between 06/25/11 and 07/05/11. Per this website: www.Kia-forums.com/Kia-Forte-cerato-td-koup-discussion/55002-sx-2-4L-w-auto-trans-2.html I am not the only person with this problem.
