Yes it happened to me yesterday. Exactly the same. It scared . The hell out of me. out of me, aprox. $7000 damage, new Kia Cerato. I refuse to drive it, has happened twice in the last month. Kia have got to do something about it, I could have killed myself or somebody else,very dangerous.

I refusedto drive my Kia again, as it happened twice in a month. It's called uinintenial surging, & Kia refused to recognise it. Had to sell the car although only 5mnts old
