    Forte5 turbo manual hesitation

    I just test drove a 2016 forte5 with the 1.6 turbo and 6 spd manual and got a bad hesitation at 3000 to 4000 rpm going up a slight hill. I figured the turbo was out or its power range or some turbo lag? I also drove one with the automatic, same problem. Any ideas?

    Fuel lines?

    Could it be A/C kicking in?

    What gear/speed were you in?

    You try lugging that thing up a hill in too high of a gear and/or low rpm that will definitely happen.

    3000-4000 rpm is not lugging no matter what gear that would be.

    Was the gas tank full? Could be fuel cut off. Monday 3000rpm is lugging.

    Try turning off traction control and see if it's any better
