Involuntary Acceleration/engine Lurching. My Foot Was Buried Trying To Brake/stop! —

My 2010 KIA SOUL which we bought from the dealer fully reconditioned used (one year ago), took off from a dead stop at a stop light with my foot on the brake when I began to release the brake to move forward. I was a car length behind the pickup in front of me and my KIA Soul jetted SO FAST, it shook and made this high pitched screaming sound, on it's own that it "slammed forward" into the pickup in front of me. After impact, I couldn't stop the car from continuing to push into the pickup which pushed into the car in front of him and that one into the next car in front, but when I slammed "my KIA" transmission into PARK, it continued to push and I could only get it to stop by turning off the key! The RPM's were as high as they could go on the dial and so was the speedometer, they were buried on the dial. I've never had a ticket or an accident and I am a very responsible and honorable working citizen and wife and mother of 42 years. I was merely in town, one mile from home, driving to my mother's house. The traffic was extremely heavy and none of us were going over 35 MPH in a 40 MPH zone when we slowed and stopped for a light after a long and slow drive down a hill. I was about the 10th car in a row from the light with stopped traffic behind and in front of me. The impact caused severe seatbelt bruising and my left foot hit the brake pedal which I was trying to "BRAKE" and also my left foot (which had been comfortably resting) hit the ridge of the fender well on the floorboard where you can rest your left foot on. My foot has some issues but it is not broken. I also have sinus infection from the chemicals of the airbag. NO ONE came to my aid but to the others. I got myself out of my car and ran to the others apologizing and showing great concern for all others involved. No one else was hurt badly. I had (and still have) full coverage insurance however not PIP coverage on me (at the time but I do NOW) and my Drs offices' are scared to treat me even though I have confirmation from my Blue X Blue Shield that they will in fact cover the medical costs since I did not have PIP insurance for myself at the time. (My injuries are all still pending since the accident was recent on July 20th (2013) and it is now Aug 12th, 2013). I also have muscle separation from the seatbelt (thank heavens it works!) and hemotoma. I have been treated at an urgency care clinic recently but in another state since I was destined for a trip 6 days after the accident anyway. My insurance co., has totaled the KIA since it has massive front end damage including the engine was pushed into the firewall and the frame of the car was bent and cannot be repaired however they cannot "completely" payoff the loan so I am stuck with the remaining cost of the loan. I WILL NOT be purchasing ANY KIA at all in the future, of any size and model even though I loved my KIA for around town and it saved alot on gas but not it didn't get what it said it would get. It got 20-22 MPG around town. I never took it out of town. I will stick with an American made car and one that is big and trustworthy! We own a Chrysler Pacifica for a second car, at least it is reliable and that is what I will drive for now, the heck with trying to save a few bucks for mileage! I have contacted the KIA dealership and they said without them researching the problem of which someone would have to pay for the tow and "pay" for them to do the research, they would not be able to help me!!!!! GEEE...do you think they might find a problem with their car??? I doubt it! Obviously the Insurance company owns the car now! Sandy

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was beautiful and fun to drive until it decided it have a mind of it's own!

Cons: INVOLUNTARY ACCELERATION and BRAKES DIDN"T STOP THE CAR when I needed them! See pictures. Lurching when I approached a stop with my foot on the brake. Also, when the accident occurred, it didn't stop pushing with my foot on the brake and I shoved the transmission into PARK!  I had to turn off the key to stop the KIA from advancing forward and pushing into the vehicles in front of me while all of us were at a stop light in town!

This Is A Great Looking Sporty Dependable Mid Size Fun Car , — Nothing really, but for those looking for a muscle car this is not one, It is a great car for a smaller family, Space is limited for hauling. I like a bigger engine, and a bit more cargo space. All wheel drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is an attractive blue color with the sporty stripe that is very eye catching. It has more room than a sedan and I like the larger tires. The height if this car is very nice. The extras-Sunroof, audio upgrade package, foglights and other accessories makes it feel complete, Topping it off with a 9.4 safety rating and 6 air bags, it is good to go! The gas mileage is average 28/31.  The 10 year warranty is excellent!

Cons: A bigger engine would be nice

Love It. — Love the stereo set up- bluetooth and Sirius. Light up speakers, super roomy all the way through. When you ride in the back seat- it's like riding in a limo. Love how the seats fold down. Love my manual transmission, it's a pretty quick little car... but not off the line. The trunk area could use more light.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good all the way around.

Cons: Stereo is not loud enough, decent sound though.

Sporty,fun To Drive, Dependable Car — This car is a fun ride and great gas mileage, I like the 18 inch tires, that makes it seem bigger and more midsize. It has done well in 2 snowy winters already. Safety of this car is also a plus!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car is stylish and sleek, love the exterior and interior look. It is roomy compare to most sedans and is higher off the ground which I like. I have the limited edition so it has all the upgrades. Gas mileage is great, I get 29/30 most of the time, and that's driving in the small town of Bend, It has gone through two winters without snow tires and does fine. I have not had any problems at all with this car. It has a high safety rating and 6 air bags.

Cons: It does have a blind spot...for all that this car says it is, it is best that you realize that it is a practical car, not an suv 4 wheel drive, but a wagon/hatchback front wheel drive-which sometimes can be misconstrued. I like this car very much.

Nice!! — Great price looks and reliability. Fun to drive cheap on gas. This is my commuter car I went from $65 fill ups to $35 fill ups and get about 300+ miles per tank. After a few add-ons (rims wing, HID head lights etc.) this is a cool little car.

Pros: Great on Gas and very reliable

Cons: You feel every little bump

Great Car With Less Than Stellar Looks! — Acceleration is fair at best, but maintaining speed is a breeze. Braking is great, I drive without snows and its quite reasonable in the winter weather. Other than a minor issue with the immobilization package the car serves me well. Later models have improved the interior, the one I drive was one of the first I saw. Fuel mileage is moderate, overall I get about 9.5k/liter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Bluetooth is a great feature as I drive it for work purposes.

Cons: Not overly fond of the body styling, but its a function rather than looks vehicle

Great Urban Vehicle That's Nice To Look At. — Very practical and economical. With most options and accesories standard in comparison to everything else in same class, it is a hands down winner. Tight suspension and relatively small size make it a blast to drive. Plenty of room in both front and rear seats.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Most everyyhing.

Cons: Needs more power.

Put Some Soul In Your Driving.... — Acceleration is quite good : 8.7sec o-100km/h Braking is very powerfull : 33meters 100-0km/h Handles great in town, a little twitchy on highway with high winds, but nothing scary Good assembly quality, cheap plastics, but acceptable for the price asked and all the equipment included Great styling, in love with it since I first saw it and bought it 3 years ago Hard on gas with the 1st generation 2.0l engine. Few problems, all taken care of royally by the dealer. 5 years no brainer warranty Super fun to drive !!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best bang for the buck !

Cons: The only thing that sucks is that the new model is more powerfull and has greater gas millage !

Most Fun To Drive In Its Class! — I'll leave out actual figures as they are easy to find, but you can ignore them. This car handles way better than anything else in its class. As a professional test track driver I have many hours in all makes and models...the soul beats out anything up to the $30,000 range for fun and reliability. I have 42,000 miles on mine and have had no issues at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fly's around corners!

Cons: 0-60 time is slow, but it feels like your going fast!
