Transmission does a harsh/jerk downshift when coming to a stop. It does it randomly, usually when coming to a stop slowly. It? S not safe, feels like the car lurches into 1st. Toyota reset the computer and it was ok for a bit but came back. I? M thinking it? S the software of the car. Toyota said it? S a learning transmission, but somethings wrong. It? S scary to drive in traffic, and only have 33k miles. The transmission fluid was change by toyota last year with the ws and it has not fixed this issue. I? M worried the car may stall in stop and go or lurch so hard firm the 2-1 downshift that i might hit the car in front of me and cause an accident.

Transmission jerks when slowing down to a stop, 50/50, it seems to be doing a hard downshift 2-1 before the stop. It? S scary and feels like you got rear ended. There is also a click noise when the downshift happens. Took it to toyota and had a transmission drain and fill, which they said the fluid was as clean and the computer has no store codes. The reset the transmission control module and the issue has returned, it shouldn? T have these issues at 19k miles! Also the transmission hesitates going into traffic, which can cause an accident because it seems like it doesn? T know what gear to be in. I wish toyota would read the other people? S comments who had the same issues with this u760e transmission. This is a safety issue and needs to be corrected. I? M worried for the longevity and i feel i wasted money trying to do a transmission service which was suggested by toyota and that didn? T fix a thing.

THE BRAKE LIGHT ON THE DASH CAME ON FOR A SECOND WHILE ACCELERATING FROM A STOP. THE PROBLEM HAS PROGRESSIVELY GOTTEN WORSE. THE LIGHT NOW COMES ON AND STAYS ON THE WHOLE TiME YOU ACCELERATE BUT AS SOON AS YOU LET OFF THE GAS PEDAL THE LIGHT GOES OUT. THIS NOW HAPPENS EVERY TIME YOU ACCELERATE FROM A STOP AND THE LIGHT STAYS ON UNTIL YOU LET OFF THE GAS.

TRANSMISSION DOES QUIRKY THINGS. SOMETiMES IT GETS STUCK IN HIGH RPM'S AND DOESN'T WANT TO UPSHIFT. SOMETIMES IT WON'T ACCELERATE BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GET THE RPM'S UP HIGH ENOUGH. THIS IS AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. SOMETIMES IT SLIPS
