I've had the car a couple weeks and mostly driven in cool weather (< 60 F). The last few days, I've been driving in a bit warmer weather (75-80 F) in the mountains. I've had the power limit light come on, and lost almost all acceleration for the next few minutes. Yesterday it happened after a 5 minute freeway drive, then 5 miles of mild mountain climb. There was maybe a few quick accelerations, but nothing crazy.
Given the car is so new (~900 miles) does it seem like it could be a fan/cooling issue, or is this typical?
