My daughter has just purchased a "Kia approved" Kia rio 2 1.4 petrol 2011 (old model) 5000 miles on clock, when moving from a stop position the car stalls in 1st gear the only remedy to this is to highly rev the accelerator which is a safety issue at road junctions etc.

We had it into the dealership where purchased yesterday and they informed her they could not find a problem, I have posted a topic on the Forum and have had a few replies stating this problem has been identified by other owners, could you please advise me of how to resolve this problem

Thank you in anticipation of your help
