But tonight on the way home from work, 1 block from my house at a stop sign, the car did nut produce any torque to the wheels when I tried to go the last block. The engine would rev, but it was as if the car was in neutral. No noise or strangeness before the stop... Maybe a transmission issue. I had to push it into a parking space about a half block from the house. The car was just in the shop for its annual state inspection a bit over a month ago. I'm going to check the obvious at first light tomorrow.
Yup. Same problem here. I have a '94 Lexus that i am nursing along. If it blows out before the likely 2012 delivery of a LEAF, then i will go to Prius or the next most available EV.
Pity, but that is the way it is.
Sorry to hear about the Camry...it does sounds like a transmission issue.
