FWIW this was a huge issue on Lexus ES350's several years ago. The put out a software "fix" which did nothing and IIRC there ended up being no remedy for this problem. Don't know if it's the whole 'drive by wire' thing or something to do with shift points applied to improve gas mileage. I do know it's one huge PIA and that I'd happily give up one or two mpg to have nice, linear throttle response.

Looking forward to having this fix applied. Hopefully it works.
