Good car but transmission is lousy

Vehicle

2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Many positives about this car BUT, transmission is such an integral part of a car, and this one is lousy for a car of this price. The engine and transmission seem to have trouble communicating on a downshift, when you are cruising in the 40-55mph range, transmission seems to keep searching for the right car, up then down, then up etc..Spoke with Lexus customer service and they said they have a few complaints but have no intention for any fixes at this time... This is strange because my dealer told me he had more than 15 complaints on this issue..Not acceptable for a luxury crusier sedan

Favorite Features

fit, finish, amenities, almost all systems other than transmission

Suggested Improvements

replace or modify transmission
