2009 Kia Sportage Question: transmission surging and sticking

 

Question

I was coasting though a parking lot, about to pull in a parking space, when the car surged and crashed. The tire patterns show I had my foot on the brake, it was like it had a mind of its own! The night before, it jerked a little like the transmission was slipping! Other than that, no warning. any others experience this? Will this show on the cars computer?

    Yes this happened to a buddy of mine once, he pushed the gas somehow as well as the brakes! But i am sure you had something else go wrong ¿ Not recorded in the computer, unfortunately.

    How much damage did it do to your car when you crashed it due to this malfunction? That may make it hard to ever find a mechanical problem. Transmission is not what caused this!

    the front end damaged but no fluid leaks, no radiator crushed, they are putting it on the computer right now! so, not the tranny? It surged forward very fast!
