Default 2005 V6 Hesitation

Always use high octaine fuel in my V6...lately notice a hesitation, then
surge when coasting at about 30mph then hitting gas lightly. Any ideas?

Very well known issue.

It is the infamous Toyota 'drive by wire' and five speed transmission issue.

Look up 'hesitation' for Toyota at edmonds.com.

Has nothing to do with your gas.

Two weeks ago my wife purchased an '05 six-cylinder XLE Camry and we have
the same problem; about a two second lag from the moment you step on the
pedal to the moment the engine starts going. And then a slight but
noticeable de-acceleration just before the shifting of gears. This makes
for some fairly unsettling acceleration.

Doing a few Google searches brought up a flood of customer complaints over
the last year but I haven't found a official acknowledgement of the problem
on Toyota's part. Is this because an official acknowledgement would mean
they would have to fix the problem (if possible)? Or has there been an
official acknowledgement and I just haven't seen it?

I feel a little let down that the salesperson did not disclose this issue
when selling the car because it's not something one might really take
notice of during a quick test drive. I believe we have a 30-day return no
questions asked guarantee but I'm not sure.

Return the car. There are floods of Toyo's and Lexi out there that can't be
fixed. Many model years are involved.

Why be a victim? Give them the message that your hard-earned money ain't a
joke. And don't believe the guff the dealers like to spread that they can
'flash' your car and fix the problem. Yeah, they can flash your car but the
problem only goes away for about two weeks. Bye bye 30 days if your timing
is bad. Yours to keep and suffer with. Have fun with a lemon-law return,
you'll grow gray.

I drive a 5sp auto that doesn't have any of this crap going on.

Find a brand that fulfills your expectations and buy it.

The 4 cyl is even worse. See:
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/pr...aintsearch.cfm

File complaints there too so Toyota will fix it. Otherwise, they
won’t.
