- transmission hesitates & shudders - not responsive -center console is chintzey
Purchased As New
I have had this car for 1 year and I have brought it to lexxus 5 times for the transmission issue plus weird rattling noises in the cabin and in the engine compartment almost like tht heatshield is loose. The dealer tells me there is nothing wrong with the car, the transmission is supposed to hesitate and shudder in traffic or upon acceleration after a turn. this is the way it is designed. Its computerized and it tries to anticipate your next move which causes the hesitation. I also called lexus about it. they said the same thing. nothing they can do. i wish I knew before I shelled out 40K. the console in the middle is chintzey.do yourself a favor and test drive tons of cars before you buy one of these and drive it in traffic.
