 Description of the problemI purchased my vehicle from carmax about 2. 5 months ago with an extended warranty. After driving my vehicle daily back and forth to work, i noticed the hesitation while coming to complete stop or a traffic light. The rpm would increase while the transmission would hesitate when i pushed the accelerator between the speeds of 10 - 35 mph. At first sign, it appeared the transmission was defected, so i decided to take it to carmax service center. Two days later i received my 2003 lexus es300 with a clean slate (the service technicians indicated the transmission did not indicated wear) and i was told to bring it back if i still had the same problem. I am taking my vehicle to the service center with more information tomorrow. Lexus/toyota needs to either recall these vehicles to fix this issue or they will have a major lawsuits from a lot of people with a class action suite. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be address from lexus/toyota representatives to keep toyota/lexus in good standings. After reading other complaints, i am really nervous about driving my vehicle and i just purchased it.
