Hi gang. I have a 2007 Touring Prius. I bought it in February of this year.
A Prius has "no transmission" according to the Toyota Service mechanic. Maybe not, but sometimes when I am driving on the freeway and either going up a hill or accelerating the car feels like it has a clutch or transmission slipping. The engine revs or races but there is no power happening. A couple of times when this has happened I pushed the pedal almost to the metal and the power kicked in. It is frightening cuz people drive in my freeway at 65 to 75 mph and I need to move out of their way and when it "slips" it is very difficult. I have another Prius a 2005 model and I have never had this problem.
Does anyone else have this problem ? Can anyone tell me what may be wrong ?
