This week me and the wife have both noticed our 2010 RCZ struggling and losing power when going up hill.

Tonight we were on a drive in the countryside going up a moderate bank in 5th it lost power for around 1 second, then later in 3rd gear up a bank it did the same.

Weird one as it felt like wheelspin but it was power related for sure.

Any idea's?
