    Check the massive air inject module. My vehicle hesitated going over 30 and really struggled going up any steep hill and found out at the KIA dealership my air mass injector needed replacing. I have owned this car since purchasing it new and it only had about 1600 miles, gave it 2 issues...engine and transmission. But my vehicle has never given me any issue at all. I love my vehicle.
