That's exactly what mine is doing, Jeff. He said there is some type of a clutchy thing that is a virtual 5th gear when you're highway driving and that times when you slow down it "sticks." In my case, though, I had slowed down, stopped at a light, and re-started so the logic didn't add up. It started at a slow speed and continued for about 2 miles until I got it home -- only at slow speeds.
I'll try the gassing it thing, if it happens again ;-)
As for the dealership; honestly, I don't care how they train their mechanics or on what. I expect, as a customer, that the end result is a fair and accurate assessment of my situation. If the mechanics aren't trained beyond following a procedure, then they should have another level of service personnel who can do the root cause analysis ... maybe even go so far as to engage me in a Q&A, which they never did.
