Customer Question

I just bought a pre owned 2008 Lexus ls460 with 61,000 miles, i live in Florida and the weather is hot in the morning when I'm backing out of the driveway and I put it in drive and take off I get a banging sound sounds like the tranny but after that it good and at times when I hit the gas to pass someone it seems to hesitate. The manager at the dealer said that happens with the 2007 to 2009 and not to worry about it and I can get interest free extended warranty which I can understand to be good but I have this issue now with a 90 day warranty so I can't accept that this is a normal thing, can you give me your diagnosis

Is this a major issue or a minor one , could it be a warm up sensor, should I let the car run for a few minutes before driving even though it's pretty hot here in Florida already

This could be a major issue, visit this link, dealer would have to verify this wasn't done yet and that its applicable to car.
