Slow to engage drive from Park. Reverse OK.

Hello. 2013 Rav4 2wd Limited. 60k miles Not in ECO mode. Half the time you shift from Park to Drive it takes 2 to 3 seconds to go into gear, half the time it engages quickly. Engine cold or warm 80F day. All other shifting seems fine. Thoughts?

Mine is about 1 second which I find too long still.

I honestly think it’s a weakness in the transmission.

2013 XLE here. 1 to 3 seconds pretty standard...enough that I have to pause for a beat before pressing on the gas pedal so that I don't get a jerk as it engages at higher RPM.
