Can you describe the known problem? Mine has a "shudder" between second and third when the gas pedal is just slightly pressed.

My GS350 RWD 2007 got this problem too. skipping/jumping of the tires/car, its very soft, all the lights on the dash shut off then 2 second later it back on normal. it only happened once though.

Also notice if I drive the car as a manual and go thru the gears i never notice this problem. It's annoying but doesn't appear to be serious. The problem feels just like driving a manual car in a higher gear at a low speed and need to down shifted.


Left the dealership and was advised I need to replace the transmission because they don't do transmission repair. They only replace them. They are contacting Lexus to find out what they can do for me. I bought two Honda with 100,000 mile on them. Drove them up to 200,000 miles with no problems. I'm pissed and may never buy another Lexus after this experience.

The transmission is controlled by a computer that's in your car. The dealership "flashes" the computer with a firmware to try and resolve any problems you are having.

Default Vibration

Hi Guys, so I'm having the same exact problem and Lexus said all they had to do is replace the tranmission fluid. Something about it has to be at an EXACT LEVEL and if its a bit to high or a bit to low then the car runs and shifts hard. Please let me know how accurate this really is. They said the vibration is now GONE... Please help
