I have a major problem and my dealer doesn't see any problem. Normally, once I reach a particular cruising speed, I let up on the accelerator and then gingerly apply just enough pressure on the pedal to maintain forward momentum. This always results in a feeling as though the the motor/generator(s) have released their grip on the drive-train and the car is basically coasting or freewheeling. If I am headed down a hill, I can completely release my foot from the accelerator and watch as the car speeds up thanks to gravity. When I am coming to a stop, I gently apply braking power and I can feel the MG's slowing the car until I am almost stopped, then I feel the actual brakes taking over the stopping of the car. And of course, I can hear the MG's whine as the car nears its stop. Now, I don't notice the MG-whine and it feels like I am braking only with the actual brakes. And when I release the gas pedal going down hill, I quickly slow down. In fact, to make progress going uphill, I have to push the gas pedal down much harder than ever before and it feels as though an MG (or two?) is dragging the car down. I described this to the dealer's mechanic and he said that the car is supposed to lose speed going downhill - that it is normal. I argued that it has never done this in the past 30K miles since I bought the car. Further investigation reveals no codes or histories, according to the mechanic. When I first experienced these symptoms, I was on the highway and noticed that I had to keep pushing the gas pedal further & harder. It got so bad that I pulled over and I felt the wheels & tires to see if a brake was dragging. When I was by the right rear wheel, I noticed the smell of hot oil (transaxle over heating?). Then I noticed as I was going down a very steep grade (with truck emergency turn-outs) that the car was losing speed rapidly and I had to apply more gas pedal to maintain momentum. Any advice for evaluating/remedying this situation?
