2014 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
After owning and loving an ES300 for many years, I purchased a 2014 ES350 and immediately was bothered by transmission problems.
If I take my foot off the gas and coast between 45 and 20 mph the car downshifts and feels like my foot is on the brake.
Continuing to coast, at some point the car upshifts on its own and feels like I've put my foot on
My dealer acknowledged that the car behaves as I've described, but told me that this is the way it is designed to operate.
They told me that if I didn't like the way it drives I shouldn't have purchased it.
I wish I had been warned about a possible transmission issue when I researched the car on Edmunds.
