ANNOYING TRANSMISSION HESITATION
By e. marks on
Vehicle
2004 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
The handling is extremely capable for sporty driving and the brakes are unrivaled. The power is adequate and smooth, though it tends to lug a little at lower RPM's. The E-shift allows only limited control over shifting (gears 2-5) and far too often down- shifts on its own. A HESITATION PROBLEM occurs in many IS300's as a result of the vehicle's ICU (onboard computer) malfuntioning -- a major issue considering it is not detectable during the intial test drive, gets progressively worse, and according to Lexus, is not correctable.
Favorite Features
Nice exterior, great handling and excellent brakes.
Suggested Improvements
A transmission hesitation at low speeds that is annoying and potentially dangerous.
