Hi Everyone

I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have an 07 kia ceed. Tonight I was driving at 60 with cruise control on and the car jolted and seemed to slip into a lower gear and wont change up. It seems ok changing between 1-3 but wont change out of 3rd in drive. There are no lights on my dashboard. I had it serviced last month and some coils changed.

Any ideas? Thanks Alicia

This phenomenon can be the automatic transmission going into "safe mode". May start in 2nd gear, may not change up to the higher gears, It's possible that the motor wont rev as high as usuall. This is to protect the trans., reduce heat build up and so on. I guess a dealer will have to clear that fault. The cause could be low oil, oil change due, or some other transmission issue.
