 Description of the problemAfter the vehicle has been running from a light or stop there is hesitation when trying to accelerate. I have taken the vehicle to the lexus dealer in owings mills,md. Several times. The first instance they said could not get the vehicle to repeat it. I went back complaining for the second time a was told that it could be fuel injectors clogged followed by another list of potential service items for about $1000+ expense which we deniedit since we have always maintained our car good & alwaysuse 93or 89 octane gas with maintenance service as recommended. This is my wife's car and i am always worried about a potential accident with this car. Lately this hesitation frequency has increased from what we hear is that we are not alone and seems to be an ongoing problems.
