Did the transmission issue smooth out over time? Most cars for many years have computers that learn your driving habits "fuzzy logic." You could give it a few months or try having the computer reset. You can always override the gears with the gear selector or try to accelerate a little earlier/later in those turns. Toyota has needed to but 5 or 6 speed transmissions in their automatics sooner than they have been doing. If you research transmissions you'll learn about harder shifting transmissions last longer than softer ones. Regarding the doors, I can't stand Subaru's frameless doors for this reason. I can assure you that the door is not made of tin. You should look into having dynomat installed (any good car audio store). I've done it myself and it is pretty easy to do. It would be pretty cheap to just have your driver's door done. Toyota uses the same steering column stocks in EVERY car they make. It is very comforting when you change between vehicles. I much prefer cruise its own stock. The back door has always been an issue. I just wish the window opened separately with the wiper on top under the spoiler so it doesn't freeze to the car when it snows(duh!). Unless you're getting the V6 there's a ton of competition with hatches. None of them add interior storage by putting the spare on the back door. I also can't stand undercarriage spares. ;)Report it
