Transmission issues in the 2019-2020 Kia Forte continue to emerge from concerned consumers. Revving transmissions, stalling engines, and other powertrain failures have all been reported, with some consumers indicating that these issues have occurred more than once. Even trips to the dealer have proven unsuccessful, leaving Kia customers concerned about the vehicle’s safety.
One driver of the 2019 Kia Forte reported driving their vehicle along the highway when it began to rev heavily and the wheels failed to respond properly. The driver was able to lead the car to the side of the road, but they are worried that this issue will happen again. Another driver shared how their engine would rev and lag at random intervals while traveling along at highway speed. Other reports of Kia Forte vehicles suddenly accelerating or stalling without warning continue to crop up, prompting many customers to share their concerns about vehicle occupant safety. While the manufacturer has issued a few recalls affecting this vehicle, several Kia customers explain that they are still awaiting clear and lasting fixes.
