Rough Transmission?

Recommended Posts


Has anybody ever had any problems with transmission on the LX-470?

I have a 2002 and find it to be very 'jerky' between up and down shifts, sometimes it seems to get confused at very low speeds around a parking lot for example, and under load it also jerks forward on each change. I had a 2001 LX-470 previously (both these cars were bought brand new) and it was fine.

Lexus tell me they can see what I'm talking about, but feel that it's within tolerance, I don't believe it is, and I'm real unhappy about spending over $60k on a car that changes like a 100,000 mile dodge.

Appreciate any feedback

Lexus tell me.....

Do you mean your local dealer or Lexus Motors?

If the former, tell them you are unhappy with their diagnosis and get Lexus Motors involved and/or try another dealer.

I used to find my 2000 4 speeder used to do something like that. Finer gas pedal application and anticipation was the answer.

I have the 5 speeder for over a year now and whilst no use to you, the gearbox has transformed the whol car.
