Default Tranny Problem with 2K GS300

Newbie with tranny problem...I recently purchased a 2K GS300 with 67K miles from Cerritos Lexus. I am the second owner (verified by Carfax). Dealer gave me a 60 day warranty with vehicle. After owning the car for 65 days, CEL comes on indicating # 2 solenoid failed in tranny. (Sorry, I'll get the exact code number later today). Anyway, Lexus Cerritos said "so sad, too bad, tough luck, you're stuck". However, for $550 dollars, we'll troubleshoot the problem. Needless to say, I stormed out of the dealership, and went to my mechanic, near me. He sends me to a local tranny facility (not AAMCO). This place has had the car for a week: replaced one solenoid, and same CEL has come on, and it can't even be cleared. Is ordering another solenoid, and should be in within a week [:@]At my wits end and hoping someone can shed light on the situation. Should I stay with the tranny place and let them keep experimenting, or crawl back to the dealer, and take a beating?? BTW, the symptoms of the CEL appear to be tranny never shifts into third gear.


In advance, thanks for the feedback,

T
