Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Surging question - 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid

The car surges during acceleration. Mainly over 45 mph and rpms barely move. Seems like it only does it when car is in overdrive. If you use M4 it doesn't surge at all. Have put fuel injector cleaner in and doesn't help. Anyone have same problem or know what it could be?

    Yes I am having same problem and at lower speeds as well. I've had the car in to Chevy and they completed necessary "updates" but it did not help. It does not happen every time I drive, so it's very hard to describe and diagnose. I also have and issue when I brake, it almost feels like it slips and jerks, again does not happen all the time, do you experience this as well?

    No not having any problems with slipping and jerking. I have also noticed the surging at lower speeds but like yours, does not do it all the time.
