this is what happened to me in econ mode...
Last week I decided to drive on highway instead of local roads to my work. This time I wanted to try econ mode. I switched the mode to econ well before highway ramp and started driving. Then I realized what an idiot iam deciding to use econ while entering highway. While on the on ramp, I pushed the gas pedal normally, no pickup, I pushed more no luck. For few seconds, I was terrified thinking what if someone rearends me or get into a crash . Then I finally decided to floor it, that's when TLX wokeup and picked speed.
Fortunately nothing bad happened, learnt it the hard way though. Going forward, I will not use Econ unless I am at a cruising speed on a long drive.
