  1. Started out on a drive to Chatham this morning (about 100km). My ‘05 acted like it had not been remapped. Gutless as I remember all my diesel Smarts were prior to remapping. Car has 130K on it and was remapped in 2011 at Flying Tiger in Vancouver. This phenominon happened once before last March, but an overnight stop renewed its normal remapped operation. No trouble since. This time it was a casual drive down the 401 with no time constraints, so I went ahead. But this time was different. On the highway, the car would not go over 110 on speedo (103 on GPS, due to tire size), no matter how I pressed the ‘gas’ pedal. To the floor was the same thing. Old MTS cruise control did nothing. Hitting small highway expansion joints cause the car to shift to 5th, with some slowing but no over-revving. Shifting to 6th only returned it to the same 110km/hr speed. Those expansion joints also caused the dash display to indicate a downshift was needed..... at 110 in 6th ??? After a 2 hour layover, the return trip from Chatham was fine with none of these symptoms. It was also fine later that same day. Has anyone else experienced this strange behaviour with their ‘05 ?? Any suggestions ??
