The trouble you mention about the transmission waking up in the morning! There is a feature that is normal for the transmission to not shift to 3rd gear when it is cold. It will however shift when speed gets to 35 or 40 MPH. It is a warm up feature to get fluids and engine to temp before shifting. It is best to take is slow the first mile or so, or let it warm for a minuet before your drive. Hopefully the freeway ramp is not at the end of your driveway. But it will shift if you accelerate hard or to above 40MPH. I have had my, purchased used in 2002 1994 ES300 and it is still a good driving riding car. Have had some minor things like alternator, Y pipe, muffler..I think most problems I have had were due to it being up north and salt damage has started to show up on the body.Report it
