2001 Honda Insight

Transmission problem
2001 Honda Insight Two Wheel Drive Automatic 83500 miles

I just bought a used 2001 Honda Insight. It's equiped with an automatic transmission. It seems to run well except in one circumstance. When I'm going uphill, the car seems to gallop. I first thought of the transmission. But I'm told that since its a hybrid it could be something else. I stopped in at a dealer and the technician said it was fine. Do you have any suggestions?
