I have a 2012 Kia Sorento AWD. I had my 56000 Type 2 Service done about 2 weeks ago at a Kia Dealer. The only thing different is they added Kia Fuel Injector cleaner which I have never done. Since then the automatic shifting has been clunky and switching from 6 cylinders to 4 for ECO drive has been erratic. Yesterday while accelerating from 50km to 80 km the malfunction light came on and the car lost acceleration. It was like driving from 2nd to 5th gear in a standard vehicle. Very sluggish. I've read so many similar stories with different ideas. First the dealer said it will reset itself. But I opted to have it towed to the dealer to get checked. Is it time to sell my KIA? It's only 18 monthes old.
