So, I don't know if they even checked, but if I don't have oil - this could be my issue and also why the clutch slippage gets worse after extended driving if that bearing is binding and heating up!
Mine would heat up in as little as 10 highway miles, or numerous start/stop in heavy traffic. One time in the middle of Austin, Tx. on I-35 it totally slipped after a hard shudder start. I managed to finally get it rolling using the S-mode and 2nd gear. Heat was the major factor.
