Default 2004 V.6 Engine Hesitation and Acceleration Difficulty

My 2004 v.6 Camry has this problem also. Furthermore, the accelerator
requires more pressure than is normal. I've driven Camrys for the last
12 years and I have NEVER had one with these problems. Toyota has been
no help at all. At first, the dealer where I bought it said there was
no problem, then they admitted that the 2003 Camry V.6 had the problem
and they claim that Toyota came up with a remedy. They kept telling me
Toyota would issue a bulletin on the 2004 problem, but then they
changed their tune and told me "go talk to Toyota, we can't help you."
The hesitation problem is potentially dangerous, because, you can
never tell exactly when it will happen. The difficulty in accelerating
makes this car no fun to drive. I would love to get rid of it, but I'm
not sure what path to take.

THere is a TSB out concerning the computer controlled shifting. It involves
re-programming the software for the transmission. I've done it several
times and have had customers tell me that it has improved the quality of
ride. I think it's covered under the 5/60 warranty, but I can't remember
off hand.

I've had the same problem with my 04' Camry. The dealer has suggested Toyota
is aware of the problem and resolution is in progress. If someone knows a
TSB is out already for it, please advise.
