Could do with a little more information here but I'd take it to your Kia dealer as car should be under warranty

Thanks for reply - Yes it was taken to dealer but computer test did not show any faults????? - waiting for final report. This is the fifth Sportage ( All Autos) we have had and never experienced this "Unintended Sudden Acceleration " before,. I note that most leading manufacturers have experienced this problem.


This does seem to be a fault that occurs a lot on the Sportage. If your dealer can't get to the bottom of it you should escalate the situation and complain to Kia UK.
