2003 Toyota Highlander acceleration hesitation

Acceleration hesitation; initial depression of the gas pedal feels as though it stuck. While this issue is not as bad as being stuck in full acceleration, it is still an unacceptable condition. I do like my highlander but this issue must be resolved. I would hate to believe old Toyotas need to be crushed to make the roads safe.

There are lots of old vehicles on the road that don’t make the roads unsafe. If you are not mechanically inclined why are you not having this problem looked at?
