the KIA is a cheap car and they cut corners to make it cheap so the engine doesn't have the power of more expensive brands. going up hill requires more power than driving on a flat surface and your car doesn't have the power needed to accelerate normally up a hill but on the off chance it is another problem you might have a mechanic look it over just to be sure. but everyone i know that has a car like yours has the same problem.

That vehicle has a 3.5 liter V-6 engine, which should zoom right to the top.
Sorry to say but it is time for the mechanic, it may be something simple like a fuel filter, or may need a tuneup.

mix in some nail polish in with ur fuel. it contains acetone, an explosive and flammable liquid. It can boost ur speed and mileage.

It could be timing or a blocked catalytic converter

Maybe you could trade it in on a new FORD.
