Hesitation is normal
By Wil123 on

Vehicle

2004 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Everything about this car is great except for the 5 speed automatic transmission. The transmission can't seem to decide what gear is correct and is always shifting. In addition, the drive-by-wire throttle combined with the transmission causes the car to hesitate when acceleration is needed most. Toyota says that hesitation is the driver's fault and that when the car is driven, the accelerator pedal must not be floored or pressed too quickly otherwise hesitation will result. Toyota told me that they may or may not address this issue in the future, but at the present time I am told that "hesitation is normal for this design".

Favorite Features

Comfortable quiet interior

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the 5 speed automatic transmission. The hesitation in this design is dangerous and because of Toyota's lack of concern, this will be the last Toyota product I ever own.
