Asked by David Jun 15, 2014 at 09:33 PM about the 2009 Kia Sportage LX V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As I read thru these "sudden acceleration" problems, I start to wonder. A number of months ago, I noticed that occasionally, the brake pedal would stiffen-up when I go to slow down. If I keep pressing harder on the brake pedal, the engine would start racing (I always depress the clutch when I start slowing down), this could be the cause for the sudden acceleration problem. As soon as I feel the stiff pedal, I take my foot off, then re-apply. Normally, the second attempt at braking, works. I'm thinking that it's an electrical problem.
