    Was in a Lexus RX330 and I hate the transmission

    And what a nice car BUT the auto tranny destroys the car. This was a fully loaded SUV. My friend drove it and gave it 100% throttle from the get up and the transmission sounded and felt horrid during the upshifts. Even during light throttle application it felt like my parent's 97 Safari with a transmission that needed to be looked at because of the harsh 1-2 shift. Both the Taurus and the RAM have better auto trannsmissions than that Lexus. For that amount of money I'd never get it.

    Overall though the vehicle was pretty good but the transmission ruined it. What do you guys think?? Were we just driving a bad one??

    I think you were in a bad one. I've driven a few RXs and never had a transmission problem.

    Thought it was weird that it did that. Other than that I thought it was a great vehicle.
