2010 with 40k miles
Driving along and noticed when hitting a hill it wouldn't keep speed and pushing accel wouldn't really accelerate.
Pulled off and very little response from accelerator...like in 5th gear. In neutral the engine would rev properly.
Turned it off and restarted and drives normally but I didn't want to try cruise again as I'm hundreds of miles of home.
Any ideas??

First thought was a glitch in the Matrix. Still think it could be electronic in nature...

A bad torque converter will give that symptom but you only got 40K...and the issue went away after a restart.

Go try it again. See if you can reproduce the problem at will.
