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

It is continually happening once the ac is on.

You must'nt put the cruise control on, as just I was told that was what caused it to surge, just be very careful. Like I said we sold mine as I refused to drive it anymore
