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.
