1000 miles. Has an erratic transmission
shift pattern. Was present in the 2002
models as well, and was suppose to be
fixed by a software change, but it
isn't. It is actually dangerous. If
you release your gas pedal, and press
it back to where it was you get a huge
thump. You also find it very
hesitantif going from say 27 to 40 mph.
The delay is very noticeable, don't get
into an intersection, and need
immediate move. First Lexus says, the
fix is delayed (shelved), and now
theysay end of 2003. I don't think
Lexus knows how to fix this 5 speed
problem. It affects power because
normal gas pedal pressing doesn't allow
the transmission to shift quick enough.
The floor lights coming on when in
park. Fit and finish look good except
around door panel sill carpet. The
electric trunk opener is handy, as well
as the dual ac.Need more ac flow to
rear passenger without blowing driver
Fix Transmission,more power,Better
carpet trim work door panel. Easier
stick for steer.wheel tilt. Better back
bolsters like BMW. darker leather,
lighter easily dirtied. leather on door
posts,no fabric.Looks like Camry.
Harder paint on front bumper that
doesn't chip so easy/discolor.
