Toyota is VERY well aware of the transaxle downshift delay/hesitation problem.

If you've read this thread and understand the issue is not regarded as a fixable problem for the dealer why waste your time taking it in for service? I mean if you know every single van has this issue, they can't fix it and adjustment of driving patterns alleviate it and that all the dealer will do is look at it, test drive it, reset it and give it back to you almost exactly as you brought it to them why waste your time?

But it is a "fixable" problem, how and when remains the question so drilling down at the dealer on regular, otherwise free time, basis might well be worthwhile.

If you have free time to spend sitting around at a dealer your time is a lot cheaper than mine. More power to you all- I couldn't do it.

Shortly after we bought our 2004 Sienna van XLE AWD, I experienced this hesitation issue incessantly. I solved it by starting out in 3rd gear, moving to 4th for around town, and drive for faster speeds. It works beautifully though some who are with me don't understand.
