    2009 DC V6 auto tranny 20K mi, runs smooth, but I recently noticed that if I floor this thing from a dead stop, it fells like the tranny shudders a bit until it reaches the next gear or gets to a certain speed.

    I took the Stability control (RDSC/RCVA??) off as well, as I know that some car have that slippage feeling with it on from the take off.

    Basically, if I floor it, it feels like stability control is kicking in or the tranny is skipping in 1st.

    Any ideas? is it normal?

    Thanks in advance!

    Mine started doing this when I got it (used) at a hardish start and now it has progressed into doing it all the time. I have taken it to toyota many a times an they first did a tranny flush (that didn't work), then hey replaced the transmission (also no worky), then they swapped the drive shafts from a taco they had sitting on the lot (no work), swapped the cross member, for the transmission, and also doesn't work. So nothing yet has worked and all that is left is the torque converter, and rear diff. Thank god for warranty!!

    maybe one wheel is spinning, then the computer brakes one (auto LSD).

    have you tried taking off the traction control completely, by pressing the button for a few seconds (where you don't see auto-lsd)?

    The driveline is mounted on rubber. Rubber carrier bearing and trans mounts. The rear springs are weaker than slinky's. When you floor it, the axel wraps and sends the driveline into a vibration. There isn't much you can do about it from an OEM set-up other than don't floor it...

    Cool, I guess its just standard then. I dont usually floor it, I just got it last week and since it has the warranty and its at 20K, I have been noticing everything I possibly can to address at the dealer when I get a chance (loose mirror, TSB-Tranny, springs, etc...)

    It goes when I floor it, it just really feels like an old Acura I had with stability control though where you can feel a shudder almost like a light ABS feel. But I will turn both buttons off on the dash (RSCV and the other one) as I have no idea what they are, i know one of them is stability)

    Haven't done the tranny flush cause I figured its only at 20K? Maybe I should though?
