2005 Kia Optima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 76,000 miles
Just bought used Kia Optima 4 weeks ago. 76,000miles. After 2 weeks the car started jerking and you have to push the gas pedal down all the way to get it up to 20mph. After that the car jerks and jerks until it finally gets to 40-50mph then seems fine (for a few miles0. But when you come to redlight it feels like car is going to shut off and sometimes does. You have to put it in park and rev up engine to stop it from cutting off. Had new computer and spark plugs done. 2 Kia dealerships stumped. Want to now charge $800 to go under the hood.
