I have had this happen several times now, apparently at random, where the engine appears to be in neutral when I am depressing accelerator pedal. Most recently while normal driving in Comfort Mode on freeway at about 70MPH. Just moving along and all of a sudden I get no acceleration while depressing accelerator. It corrects after a few seconds. Is this a recognized issue? I did not accidentally move drive train into Neutral position from what I could tell. Thanks, Don in San Diego

Sounds like the issue that is causing a recall as I remember. Losing power and regaining it again. Its recommended to take it into the service center quickly.

Seems like it could be a safety issue, I would bring it in for service and have it looked at.

Just a thought... by any chance were you in D mode with Adaptive regen? Could the adaptive be wanting you to coast for some reason (car ahead of you...), or maybe it's overactive? Still, probably should have it looked at...

I can’t believe the adaptive Regen would do that. The accelerator overrides everything in that space surely, it’s a safety issue surely to have power, when you need it. That sounds like a fault to me, fyi mine has never done anything like that.

Absolutely! Adaptive only addresses what happens when you remove pressure from the pedal.
