Just bought a kia rio chill and the accelerator keeps sticking when I come to first set off on a journey? Also first to second gear seems notchy, is this a common problem?

Check the throttle cable and throttle plate. Try cleaning the throttle bore. Check if the stopper for the throttle plate had been tampered with.
