FWIW: No jerking here on my <1000mi RAV4 I picked-up last week. Also confirmed all cals were current using my VCXNANO which makes sense since there are also no open TSBs...

I'm sorry.....when it drives like it should, it's really a fun car to drive.

Are you considering trading it in? Do you regret not waiting for the hybrid?
I agree, when it drive like it is supposed to, I absolutely love my Rav. It's the first 15 minutes that are extremely ruff (transmission) I do my best to keep it in snow mode since it reduce the number of time the transmission downshift like that, or I simply make sure I don't come close to a complete stop or else it drops. I mean, like I said, I've changed my driving habit a lot to reduce the amount of time it does it, but it still happens from time to time.


Yes and no for the trade in. I know i'll lose easily 7000$ doing it, but than again I still love my Rav. That's the sad part.


Regrets not waiting the Hybrid? Once again, yes and no, when I bought the Rav, I needed a SUV right now and not 6 months later.


Knowing what I know now, I would of paid the extra 2 grand for the cx5 lol.


My first ever Toyota and probably my last brand new car i'll be buying from them simply based on how they handle their client's.

I have a 2019 Adventure (6,000+ miles) that doesn't seem to have any shifting issues except that there is sometimes the subtle sensation of an upshift when slowing to a stop. There is certainly not a 2-3 second hesitation on acceleration, nor any jarring downshifts. All shift points seem optimal. It is mostly driven in ECO mode, but I have used all modes. It is interesting that a previous poster found that this issue varied from car to car (2 out of 5 had it). My vehicle is Canadian built - likely in late 2018 (we picked it up mid-January).

The 2-3 second hesitation is not every time, but happens from time to time but always seems to happen at the wrong time.


Had it happen in a round about 2 weeks ago and almost got rammed by a car cause of it. I had more then enough time to make it a safe manoeuvre but I sat there for something that felt like an eternity with the acceleration pedal pressed and I was just stalled there. The car eventually decided yup I should move and it felt like I floored it.


I am to a point that when I do a lot of stop and go, I just put it in manual mode and control the gear my-self.

Question for those WITH the issues. do you have a base model LE ?


This is the only model that shuts down the engine at a stop. THAT right there sets off alarms for me as far as how smoothly a vehicle can transition from stopped and shut down to motoring away smoothly.


The model of those without problems would of course be interesting too.

We have a 2019 XLE Premium AWD, made in Canada. Picked up at the end of February and currently at ~1300km driven, 95% City driving and exclusively in ECO mode.

We have the transmission jerking issue. I've totally changed my driving style to try to cope (i.e. committing to a stop and accelerating lightly off the line). Still catches me off guard when the jerking happens and my heart rate gets a nice spike for no reason.

Love the car to death, but I won't recommend people to buy the gas model at this point.

I have an LE AWD but the other that had the issue was a trail edition during my test drives.
