problem #1

Sportage LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

The ESC warning light on the dashboard intermittently comes on while driving, then speed is stuck at 10 mph and could not accelerate. I have to stop at the side of the road to turn the engine off. When I turn the engine back on sometimes it goes away or the engine light comes on too. Tried bringing it to KIA, did a diagnostic test, test drive, but the ESC lights never came on. Paid $100 For the service and was told to bring the car back when ESC comes back on.
