Less than 2,000 miles on the car and I've noticed a sudden loss in power twice now when accelerating from a stop. Once from a traffic light was simply annoying and the 2nd time pulling out of a parking spot into traffic was dangerous. Anyone else notice this? The normal performance is great. The car is at the dealer for repair now.
Plush feel and normal performance is better than my 2005 Prius. Better ride, handling and pick-up with slightly less fuel mileage.
When coming to a stop, the transmission downshifts at 20 miles an hour and creates a slight jerk instead of a smooth controlled stop.
