    Date of incident: 22 apr 2021, thursday description of incident: while driving on cruise control at 45 mph on a well-paved two-lane road with no other vehicles or obstacles present in either lane, the vehicle suddenly automatically decelerated sharply, causing the front end to plunge. Simultaneously, several alerts, both in words and symbols flashed on the dash. These included? Check collision alert? And lights showing a skidding vehicle and a second showing the front of a vehicle in a crash. Alternating my attention between the alerts/messages on the dash and driving the vehicle, i steered to the side of the road and stopped. The engine was turned off and then restarted. All alerts and symbols were extinguished. An inspection of the front of the vehicle showed nothing covering or obstructing any portion of the vehicle. I accelerated back onto the road and returned to a speed of 45 mph without using cruise control. The vehicle returned to normal driving with no alerts or warning symbols. After driving approximately another 20 miles, with two periods of parking the vehicle, the cruise control was again engaged at 45 mph on an otherwise empty road. While i attempted to exit the following-distance control feature, the vehicle again braked suddenly with the same set of alerts and symbols as during the first incident. Again steering to the road shoulder, the engine was stopped and restarted with all alerts/symbols extinguished except the check engine light.

    When we are stopped at a traffic light the forward collision avoidance alarm beeps/chirps a warning. Our vehicle is stopped, not moving at all. The car in front of us, or next to us is also stopped, not moving. Out of nowhere, the collision avoidance light beeps causing us to be concerned that we might get into a collision. It typically happens when the car in front of us is a tesla, mercedes or other high end car, but also occurs when the car in front of us is not a typical high end brand. This safety concern happens randomly, not everytime we are stopped at a traffic light. We have documented this with a video and provided this to the kia dealership. The dealership refused to work on the vehicle without explicit instructions from kia engineers on what they should do. The first time it was brought in, they cleaned the camera lens on the rear view mirror, but that was not the problem, only one way to eliminate an easy fix. We have brought the vehicle in several more times and the service writers told us that this was a known problem and kia should have a fix, but it has been more than 1 year since our initial complaint. I have escalated this concern to higher levels within kia and they are not willing to accept responsibility or try to repair this problem.
