like driving with the brake on.

I'm not real happy right now. Have a new 13 I bought two weeks ago and have a little over a thousand miles on with a proper break in. This morning on my way to work it felt like I was driving with the brakes on. On flats I was at 10 psi just to hold speed and was losing speed on downhills that I was breaking on the day before. I turned around and brought it home before I could do any further damage. On the way back I dropped it in neutral and it rolled like it should.

Hubs are in the right place, motor sounds good, no excess heat on wheels or driveline components, and it feels like I'm driving with the breaks on. Trying to coast on a flat in gear it slows like I'm pressing the break. Worse, there is the same resistance under throttle. My job doesn't allow me to drop everything but I'm gonna run it in Thursday. I talked to a couple service departments today and I didn't get anything over the phone which I understand.

Has anyone else had anything like this happen? I'm not a happy person right now but I'll keep everyone posted on what the deal is..

Is it possible that your hill descent is activating?

Well I dropped it off tonight and they said it'll be the first one in tomorrow morning. Topped the tank on my way and was down 3 mpg on the same driving so something is definitely up.

We'll see..

Well it's better now. I wasn't imagining things but turns out it a couple of minor things added up. I was a little low on tire pressure by about 2 lbs since it got cold, winter blend fuel, and it was probably regenninnig the morning it felt off. Drives great again. I'm used to class 8 trucks so I believe I got a little paranoid when something didn't seem right. I know when a class 8 truck has issues when it's new it's almost never right in the long term. Did get the block heater installed while I was there. Easy people to deal with there and went out of their way to service a truck they didn't sell.
