When driving the car in the city at speeds below 35 miles per hour, it performs well, but when I take it up on the highway, or attempt to take it up a steep hill...it looses power. The tac still climbs when I step on the gas and the engine rev's up, but the power just isn't there. I pull to the side of the road and let the car sit for a minute or two and it's as if something resets. It doesn't work the first time every time, but it's the only thing that gets the car moving again. It's a nice looking car, but after spending hundreds of dollars at a GM dealership, I still have the same problem...I also loose my blinkers every now and then...I don't mind spending a few more dollars, but not on guesses...I want the problem fixed.
