Rx300--jerking Under Hard Acceleration


Recommended Posts

hi guys, my son was driving the Lexus with me to the supermarket the other day and he gave it some gas at the green light....and the lexus jerked forward and when he let off the gas..it jerked back..i initially thought it was because he let of the gas completely to maintian a safe speed....but i just wanted to confirm with you guys that this is not something wrong with the lexus.

(i don't drive the lexus very hard, so i was not impressed when this happened)

it contrasted to the very 'isolated' feel of lexus...maybe it was the VVTi kicking in?

My 1999 will do the same thing. I don't think the car is designed for quick acceleration from a stand still. I don't think it is wise to let a teenager drive an RX300. Teens usually have very heavy feet. I also own a 2000 RX300 and Lexus seemed to have corrected that problem along with a few others.
