    Argh, I think I found a pretty useless Toyota dealer. I brought my truck in for a oil/lube/filter and also explained to them the transmission lag and that there was a TSB that was released to address the problem.

    She continued to ramble on about Canadian tsb's not applying to USA trucks and if she just imputed the tsb number into the computer is would automatically be rejected. Then she began to ramble about flood trucks in the USA and how some of them where being brought up to Canada and how Toyota was being more restrictive with warranty on imported Toyotas. Well I bought my truck brand new you bish!

    And we have to diagnosis the problem first then look into a fix blah blah blah.

    So we will see when I pick up the truck if they re-flashed the tranny. If I were a betting man, I would bet they don't do it.

    Argh, ok end of rant.

    I took my truck in for the same problem last week and they gave me some bullshit excuse. The did the recall for the gas pedal and I guess it involves reflashing the ECU and ever since then I've had no problems with the transmission.

    Surprisingly, they did the ecu reflash! Haven't driven the truck much yet, but so far I haven't noticed the tranny lag :headbang:

    However, I will not be returning to this dealership, the service advisor really got under my skin.
