While pulling into my driveway going between 5-10 mph I applied the brake and the vehicle lunged forward into my garage door which was closed and damaged another car parked in the garage. If the other car was not there to stop it I may have been killed. I reported this to Kia and the investigation only showed a blown fuse when they connected it to the tester. There are two other accidents that I know of with similar circumstances, please check into this before someone is killed or loses money due to something that was not their fault. By the way I was turning right into my driveway and my husband was backing out in his car when this took place and he saw the whole thing.

My daughter was driving when this incident occurred. While in heavy traffic, she had come to a stop. After stopping then resuming a very slow speed (5 mph or less), while her foot was on the brake pedal, the vehicle lunged forward in to the vehicle in front of her, causing significant front-end damage and air bag deployment. A few weeks prior to this, I was in the vehicle in my front yard at a stand still, engine running and transmission in drive because I was going to be moving it slightly, and it suddenly lunged forward while my foot was on the brake. At the time I thought I had done something wrong, but now with a similar thing happening with a different driver, and such extreme damage, there must be a bigger problem.

Driving at 70 mph with cruise control on, experienced loud "bump" on smooth highway surface with sudden and total loss of engine speed. Put vehicle in neutral and was able to restart engine. Cruise control was not working at that time. Cruise control was operative later in the day after engine stop and restart. Took vehicle next day to dealer. Dealer said they could find nothing wrong with vehicle.
