2009 Pure, 80,000 miles.
I usually drive in manual shift mode since I do a lot of hills. Today, while in 3rd and 4th, I had the clutch momentarily disengage, then reengage in about one second. Once in each gear, the throttle was only slightly open (going downhill) and once in 4th with mid-throttle going uphill. The engine speed and gear choice was within the factory envelope, as the gear choice would have been the same as the Auto mode in the same spots at that road speed. No indication of trouble from the check engine light. I think it was the clutch because the engine speed did not drop as in ignition problem but was constant or increasing. I have been reading this group for four years, but have not seen this issue mentioned - any guesses?
