  1. Have you had trouble filling your hybrid gas tank?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    From what I've read, there may be one small but key detail that differentiates the current RAV4h issue from the Gen 1 Prius. The Prius owner's manual specifically said something about variability in fuel tank capacity based on weather and other factors. That made it a design feature, not a...
  2. Stability issue

    4.5 Mechanical
    You’re right. LTA must be On in order for Steering Assist to work. But Steering Assist can be enabled or disabled separate from LTA. The flip side is if you enable Steering Assist, it will turn LTA On if it’s not already On. I think I have that right.
  3. Tire Chains / Cables: Compatibility with AWD; Tire Replacement

    4.5 Exterior
    I used tire socks one time last winter in snow on a GTI. They got me unstuck and over the hill out of my snowbound side street but just barely. They’re definitely better than nothing. They won’t last long though. Mine looked very worn after about only about 1/2 mile. They’re almost a...
  4. Stability issue

    4.5 Mechanical
    LTA is the only driver assist feature I really don’t like. You need to go deep into Settings in the menus to permanently disable it.
  5. Where to report Guidance System Errors?

    4.5 Interior
    Honestly I doubt anyone at most car companies is assigned to tracking individual reports like that. More likely is it will accidentally get fixed in some random future maps update. You could try Toyota Customer Care 800-331-4331. Best case is they open a support incident that eventually makes...
  6. limp mode

    4.4 Mechanical
    Try starting it up, drive forward, stop, turn steering wheel lock to lock a couple times. That works on some cars.
  7. Stability issue

    4.5 Mechanical
    What you’re describing sure sounds like Lane Tracing Assist. Are you absolutely sure it’s off?
  8. Have you had trouble filling your hybrid gas tank?

  9. Backup Noise Stopped.

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Likewise if ICE is running at a cold start to make cabin heat.
  10. Speedometer not correct

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Since my odometer is 2% low, 50000 miles on the odometer would be 51000 miles actually driven.
  11. Speedometer not correct

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    GPS apps and state highway mile markers confirm my speedometer is 2 MPH high and the odometer about 2% low. That's well within the letter of the law for the speedometer. There's a free app for iPhone that...
  12. Compression ratios and fuel type required

    4.5 Mechanical
    Also just for the sake of discussion, they could just as easily recommend 85 or higher and that would also work for all states.
  13. Compression ratios and fuel type required

    4.5 Mechanical
    Modern engines have knock sensors that tell the ECU to de-tune the engine to prevent knock. The price of automatic de-tuning is reduced power output.
  14. Vinyl on steering wheel and automatic heater question

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    With the AC off and the temperature set to LO, the incoming air should be unheated, same as the outside temperature. Basic fresh air flow. Only if you raise the temperature setting above LO will incoming air be heated. Pretty sure.
  15. Check your dealer's work.

    4.5 General
    I’ve gotten cars back from dealer service with major scratches in the hood, curb rash on the wheels, a broken power window button, and of course the oil over or under filled. Also grimy greasy handprints on engine covers and such. Tire pressures wrong. Come on, you open up the hood and things...
  16. Comfort of XSE seats on long trips

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I find the XSE driver’s seat to be very comfortable for long trips. I like the firmer suspension too. Doesn’t wallow around!
  17. 19' XSE squealing tires

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    It only happens for me under very specific conditions: A low-speed hard turn on a smooth concrete surface. I’ve noticed other AWD vehicles do it too In the same parking garage. I don’t think it’s anything.
  18. How can I see the temp of the engine?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    That 0W-16 oil is thin as water. Start and go. Drive easy for the first few minutes if you want and it’ll be fine.
  19. Interior heat

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Exactly. Now that we're having some cold mornings, when I get in, start the car, and turn the heat up, the ICE starts running. I'm sure there's no heat pump or auxiliary resistive heating. ICE is required to make cabin heat. My e-Golf had a heat pump in addition to resistive heating and it...
  20. It's baaack! The unpleasant odor with heat on. Season 2. :(

    4.5 General
    I tried this driving around yesterday. Heat on HI, then fan off. Heat does “seep in” as described when vehicle is in motion. I didn’t notice any odd odors with warm air flowing through the dash and floor vents.
