new to the RAV4

Recommended Posts

Greetings all

 My wife and I are both 70 plus and have just down graded from a 2005 Ford Territory to a 2018 petrol CVT RAV4 I am having shall we say problems coming to grips with this new fangle type transmission especially when it comes to hills on long down grades there seems to be a sense of vibration and to me an increase in noise.At the other end of things is the feeling one gets when going over the crest of a hill as there is a sense that there is some form of over run with both the motor and the transmission                                                                                                                                     So is all this a matter of getting use to the CVT after the Territory's transmission, I know I am an old fart and just haven't kept up with technology                                                                                           Over to all you young folk Geoff
