    As a man of science, I set out today to explore Toyota's Proximity Alert System which in my 2020 RAV4 Hybrid will emit a sound alerting nearby pedestrians that the vehicle is in a drive gear and may begin to move.

    Just purchased a new XLE Hybrid Curious on people's thoughts of the platinum warranty. It sounded pretty good on the spot but the more I read and understand it, the more I find items to be excluded which I thought would be covered. Anyone have some insight they'd like to share?

    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I can’t seem to find a straight answer about this on the forums. Most threads talk about the “manual shift” S mode for general downhill engine braking, but I’m interested in how S mode specifically affects regenerative braking in a hybrid system, and...

It was like the car turned itself off and then back on, but just...

    Absolutely delighted owner of a 2020 XSE hybrid purchased at Thanksgiving, and since this is Montana, winter tires are a must. I splurged and bought a wheel-tire set from Tire Rack, but before purchasing, called TR to ask specifically about making sure the TPMS sensors would work with my...

    We picked up a new 2019 XLE Hybrid over the Labor Day weekend, and until last week we were seeing 38/39mpg average on a tank.
