ANNOYING TRANSMISSION HESITATION
By e. marks on
Vehicle2004 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewThe 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.
Best FeaturesNice exterior, great handling and excellent brakes.
Worst FeaturesA transmission hesitation at low speeds that is annoying and potentially dangerous.
