I have the same "functionality" in my 08 limited. It was like that on all three 08's i drive. I assumed it was like that. No upshifting or downshifting. Tach remained the same. THis is pretty much when i drive slower than 25, but anything above 25, i really dont notice this "functionality". Lets see what others say.

A question for the 2008 Highlander owners, have you noticed the hestitation problem that I am having with my 2005?

I have a 2005 FWD V6, with the updated transmission calibration TSB TC004-05. The calibration seems to help, but I found that shutting off the traction control(button on lower right side of steering wheel)a few times a month help in reducing the lag time. Another thing I found that helps a lot is using non-reformulated gas. I guess the computer senses more BTUs and adjusts the valve timing, spark timing, fuel injection, and shift points. I also notice 27MPG Hwy vs. 24MPG Hwy with the 10% Ethanol.
Hope that helps,

..welcome to the wonderful world of bad science, Mike. Ethanol gives you less power, worse mileage and pollutes more, all while costing you more. Such a deal, right?
And as we divert more corn to bad fuel, corn, corn sweeteners, corn meal, tortillas, and anything that uses or eats corn, like cattle, therefore milk, meat, etc...costs more.
ain't ethanol great? Reformulated? some of use don't have a choice.

Did anyone try shutting off the traction control(button on lower right side of steering wheel)a few times a month? It help in reducing the lag time between shifts, and offsets what the computer learns.
Let me know if it work for your vehicle.

I don't really have hesitation problem on 2008 HL. Computer designed to learn driver's driving habits for a reason why disable this functionality?

That's interesting. I'm going to try that and I'll post the results. Thanks.

I checked for the traction control button and found out it is only on the 2 wheel drive models. So, guess I can't try that as a fix. Thanks anyway for your suggestion.
