When I had a test drive it had a terrible flat spot. My own car doesn't seem to have one at all. I wonder what accounts for the variation.

mmmm that sounds promising although not shore what could have happened to cure it. i have worked in a couple of main dealers (paint and body shop dept )and i don't have much faith in there troubleshooting capabilities so fingers crossed

hi again. have just filled up with shell vmax hi octane petrol as opposed to supermarket junk and the car feels to have more low down grunt and the hesitation between gear changes is less noticeable (or is it my imagination)would appreciate a secondopinion from other 2ltr petrol owners out there

This sounds like a run in problem if it has left the other sportage belonging to "John123" at a year old although it should,nt be happening at all. The only thing you can prob wait for is a software update and that will only happen if kia realise there is a software problem or mechanical issue
