Please don't be insulted if this sounds like a stupid question, but when you had the problem, did the dash indication still show you were in "DS?" If you happen to nudge the shift lever in DS mode, it goes into manual mode, e.g., if it accidentally got into 1st or 2nd gear, I assume the engine rev limiter would limit your speed to whatever the max engine revs are. I myself have in the past accidentally put it into manual mode when shifting into DS and wondered why it wasn't shifting until I looked at the dash and saw "M1" instead of "DS" and realized I had held onto the shifter a second or two after moving it into DS and accidentally put it into Manual Mode.
