Highlander XLS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

I have been driving and repairing cars in excess of fifty years. I know when an automatic transmission is not shifting properly. This transmission occasionally clunks when shifting from reverse to drive. This transmission occasionally down shifts at slow speeds so hard it almost feels as if I

applied the brakes. At slow speed turns this transmission is occasionally non-responsive, then all of a sudden takes off.

Had the dealership check it. They said it is operating as designed. I find that hard to believe. My only option is to wait for it to get significantly worse, (hopefully under warranty), and complain again. I am very disappointed with Toyota and having transmission problem(s) with (now) less than seven thousand miles on the car.
