problem #2

Started about 1 1/2 weeks ago (approx 2900 miles on the odometer), first time wasnt expecting it and hoped it was just a fluke, 2nd time it happened early my daughters were with me and asked what was wrong with the car when it happened, and then again the other morning at the end of my 45 min ride into work. Each time it happened was when I was merging from an on ramp into traffic. The last occurance, and I believe the others as well, I was going approx 35mph, staying steady on the speed looking for a spot in traffic to merge into, giving it gas and started my merge only to feel and hear no change in RPM or speed, giving it more and more petal, and still no change in speed at all, after avoiding the other driver that almost hit me because of it, I moved back over and had a moment and tried again to get into the petal at almost wide open throttle and still no RPM change and no movement up in speed (also still no loss of speed), during each occurrence the car was smooth (no engine bucking just wouldn't respond to gas input). The same symptoms have occured the three times it's occured. The resolve each time was the same, let off the gas for 1-2 secs, give it gas and the car drove again as normal. Dealership has looked at my car with no explination, no trouble codes were generated, and they stated tranny fluid was fine. It acted like the cvt was stuck on a particular band and also wouldn't allow any additional gas, hence no additional speed. The last occurance it was about 35 degrees out. I have tried to reproduce the problem many times with no success at all, and with no codes being generated to point the dealefship to any issue, this is a big safety concern for me and my family as it goes unresolved.

When overriding intelligent cruise control to pass a car, occasionally the xtronic cvt transmission appears to go into neutral, RPM increases rapidly and car doesn't speed up. Most occasions have been traveling on incline. When transmission re-engages it jerks sometimes very hard. On one instance turned cruise control off and transmission re- engaged. Most occasions have been at speeds 60-65 mph carried car to dealer could not warranty because it did not show up on computer.
