What makes Cfike anything other than a basic consumer like the rest of the folks on this board? You are hanging on a lot of assumptions, and you know what they say about that.I'm just super disappointed because these guys say the fix is a failure so either I'm stuck with our 2019 hybrid or a defective trans. Cfike says its going to fail and wont last long term. That doesnt bode well
I did mine fix a few month ago, but it did not fix the transmission problem at all.You realize this issue has been completely fixed by a software update right? I cant think of anyone here who isnt satisfied and the 2020s arent affected at all.
Have you had the update and it didnt fix the problem?
Good luck. Dont get aI am trying to get 2nd update from different location. If 2nd update does not go well, I guess I need look for lemon law. In that case, I have no idea where to begin.
You'll never get answers so just buy a Honda, mazda, ford or some other brandMy 2¢ worth is this in fact a few cars that had a software issue? Or is it a hardware issue that is being masked by a software patch? Toyota needs to be forth coming and tell us what the issue is before I will spend my hard earned money on one of these vehicles!
I watched the video butI am trying to get 2nd update from different location. If 2nd update does not go well, I guess I need look for lemon law. In that case, I have no idea where to begin.
Watching the video it’s hard for me to understand everything that’s happening. I can see the RPM jump around but without knowing what else was going on, it doesn’t necessarily tell me anything. Maybe there’s an audio explanation that I can’t hear because I’m in a noisy Starbucks right now. lol. Honestly what that looks like to me is very similar to how my GTI with the DSG behaves. Slowing, turning, speeding up, the RPMs jump around with a DSG because it’s like shifting with a manual transmission. If the car is in Sport mode, it’s even more pronounced.I went to the dealership in the morning and I uploaded a video later the day.
Having owned both (DSG and 2019 Rav), I can tell you there are minimal similarities other than quick downshifting and idle roll forward (which is a little more aggressive than typical transmissions). DSG have quite a bit of startup lag, especially from a stop, this was even apparent on the MK7.5 Golf R. I do not experience this in the Rav.As I said earlier, I really want to drive one with an 8-speed now so I can see if its behavior is similar to a DSG.
Not making light of anyone’s predicament. Just trying to understand what’s happening.
OK, I will try to be brief, but its complex.Is it a brand new design? Or has it been around for a while?
I had a 2009 VW Jetta TDI with a DSG that behaved similarly to what’s been described here and in other threads. Owners referred to the “slingshot effect” when starting from a stop, random lurching and jerking at low speeds, etc. My Jetta did randomly demonstrate all those symptoms. Most of the time it was fine but not always.
Later iterations of VWs DSG have been much improved. I don’t know if it’s through mechanical or software changes. Probably both. But even at their best DSGs do exhibit behaviors very different from conventional automatics. Some of it is completely normal but may be perceived as being “wrong” if you’ve never lived with one.
Now back to you guys. Just had to throw that out.
