 Description of the problemThe prius will shift itself out of drive and into neutral when the car has been sitting in the hot sun and the interior heats up. This has happened at least 10 times over the past couple of years. I have to manually hold the gear shift into drive in order to drive the car. I drove it to the dealer and showed them the problem and they had no idea why it did that and said they had never heard of this problem before. After the car cools down it resumes normal function. I have had to learn to leave the windows partially opened during the summer in order to avoid this problem. If the service personnel at the dealer do not know how to fix this problem, who does?
