    I’m just kind of numb at this point. So we keep a grocery getter around for easy parking and stuff. My wife said, that new RAV4 is “cute”. She then paused and asked, who makes it? I said, Toyota does honey. She said we’ll find something else, no more Toyota’s.....

    Sad but I’m thinking we are done.

    Knock on wood, but my truck is still running fine. I have lifted my truck so I have no hope of getting my light throttle jitters looked at without my lift getting blamed. Other tranny issues or driveline vibes are probably off the table as well. To be fair, my stock truck was a fight to get serviced anyways.

    I've made my bed as nice as I can. Now I lie down in it.

    My wife's 17 Rav got rear ended last week, but that happens. Otherwise it's been perfect. Only been to the dealer for it's 2 free oil changes. Just like you'd expect from a Toyota.

    Toyota did just come out with a refreshed version though.

    Sorry about getting rear ended but I’m awfully gun shy now. At this point it’d be my luck that I’d get that one RAV4 that would live in the shop beside it's Tacoma sibling.

    Coming up on 80k miles on my 2016 DCLB Sport and need to decide on T-SB-0062-18. I'm in Northern Virginia, so it's not high altitude and I haven't had too many stumbling issues. Truck gets pretty crappy MPG ~17. I did notice yesterday while highway driving: I'm in the left lane behind some left lane lolly gagger, there is another car in the left center lane pacing me for ~2 miles and my exit is coming up. I'm pretty irritated at this point, so I slowed down enough to get behind the car next to me so I can start getting over. I got over and smashed the gas which felt like it did not respond for over a second. Occasionally at a stop light I can feel a hesitation also. Should this TSB correct this issue and help gas mileage? I just don't want to make things worse...

    It should improve your hesitation/shifting issues and there should not be any noticeable difference in MPG's. Go Skins! LOL

    For all the Canadians having troubles getting their dealer to do this... I took my truck in and told them about the gear issues and advised them about the update. At first it seemed as if they were not going to do it, but either way it was on the work order. Once i picked the truck up, the tech told me that once he connected the truck with the computer it immediately prompted him to update the firmware/software. I got it done at no charge, and have to say that at first i was skeptical when people said it felt like a completely new vehicle. Well they were right, the truck feels completely different, the best way to describe it would be to say its like "half" ECT mode on (if that makes sense, just not as aggressive). Responsive from dead stop, shift points are right where they need to be and no dead spots when pressing on throttle. So far i am very happy with the new feel, i think this is how the truck was supposed to drive from the beginning. No idea about gas millage yet but i would be fine if it went up slightly as driving this truck has never felt better.

    I totally agree with your post, I had my truck done a few months back and the difference is night and day compared to where it was before. We are in Vernon BC and have been very lucky that the local dealer, Vernon Toyota, has been really good at listening to me complain while doing everything they can to get me through.
    I do have a question for you. How does your truck perform against those nasty Sask winds while you are out on the highway? Will it at least hold 5th gear at highway speed? On calm days will it hold 6th? Living in Sask for 11 years I know the climate there all too well. Since the last TSB update I have not yet had the chance to do any long road trips which really put this thing to the test. Thought you might be able some comment to that here.
    Cheers

    I have not had a chance to take it on the highway after the update, my truck has a 3" lift and i can tell you that it struggled with anything 118km+ in the wind. Downshifting, upshifting non stop. I never really paid attention to what gear it was in at the time, but will report back on exact gears and conditions next time i am out on the road. You are lucky to be out of here ha ha on days where its -31 i can tell my poor Taco struggled, though never let me down!

    I waited about a month before posting my personal experience. Either I never had the problems to the same level others describe, or it’s 100% placebo. I see no difference whatsoever.

    I just looked at my sticker. It has 2 different serial numbers but no TSB number.

    Does this look like they applied the right thing?

    My difference was insane. Night and day. Get a techstream on it and see if they actually did it.

    Nah, I’m good, but thanks for the advice. I’m not really into “cute” trucks. But, I’m also not into being in the shop for over half the ownership experience.

    I've had only a battery issue in only three years. With any vehicle you run the risk of an issue. Tell me if you go Ford Chevy or GMC you won't have any issues.

    I’m glad you’re has been great. I wish mine was trouble free as well because I’m tired of the whole back and forth thing. You are correct that any manufacturer can make a bad one - they all can and they all do. As long as man has a hand in it, it’ll never be perfect.

    Mine does the hesitation dance even in S5. Usually after opening the throttle @ 30-50mph.Took mine to the dealer for the 10k service this am and handed over printouts of both TSB 00062 and TSB 00058 and described the hesitation or "stumble". I was told their service manager took the truck for a drive and did't notice anything and that the "TSB didn't mean it's a recall". Thanks dude, guess i'm going to another dealership.

    I approached this a little differently. Since I work all the time, I asked my wife (who is much more attractive and pleasant than I am) to take it to the dealership. I armed her with a print-out of TSB 0058. They went and found the Service Manager and she told him "My husband says it only acts up on occasion. He said you're free to drive it until it happens but please be considerate and fill the tank back up when you're done." The Service Manager walked to the back and handed the TSB to a Tech. She was out within an hour including the free 10k oil change.
