You know what’s absurd? Spending half an hour writing out an overly long winded reply that has nothing to do with the topic [see: wind noise], and further, flying off the handle about your 8 speed transmission issues on the HYBRID sub forum, where discussion should be about HYBRID 2019+ RAV4’s, all of which come with a CVT. That’s absurd.
1. I expect that I can type a whole lot faster than you can.
2. Indeed, the thread veered off-subject, but when someone says something essentially to the effect of "you dumb bastards who have already bought one," I'll chime in with my experiences. Only takes a couple of minutes.
