In my 2011 I've only noticed the bogging(hesitation) when trying to accelerate hard when the engine hasn't warmed up fully. My Avalon did exactly the same thing. After it's warmed up all is well.

Do what I did, get a Garmin and some velcro. :)

Wish they had devoted all the time making 3,254 speaking commands that I never use into better colors on the display and good guidance.
