The ES needs work

2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
The 02-03 ES300's have a serious problem with the throttle/tranny computer. I've read reviews saying the ES330 does not correct that problem. Lexus has acknowledged that customers have reported problems with the drive- by-wire system, I'm one of those with major problems. I'm not sure how they could make a car that does not go when you give it gas, but there are different driving situations where that happens. Most notable is when pulling into traffic out of a parking lot. If not starting from a dead stop, the computer causes a serious lag and does not kick the engine in for a second or two. I'll never buy a Lexus again if Lexus does not fix this
Favorite Features
Interior comfort.
Suggested Improvements
Throttle/tranny computer still needs serious improvement.
