Yes mine does the same, (its an Auto) it also revs up to 1200 rpms when in park, I have read in the USA they have re called models because of this fault but this hasn't made the UK shores yet. Just another little Kia glicht.....shoudl have bought a VW Touran.

I've owned and driven numerous autos over the years and nearly all of them would 'creep' ie pull slowly forward when in neutral - if no brakes were applied. If your revs are 1200 rpm the car will naturally pull forward as soon as drive is selected - can't you slow the tickover down, or is it only speeding up when you put it in drive?
