  2. CVT Issues: More with the 'Sport mode' feature?

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    I'm looking to buy a 2017 Corolla I'm renting (will have inspected tomorrow). I thought I was getting an LE but it's an SE. Does the Sport feature ( and paddles )cause more issues (including the one that Toyota ahs a suspended campaign for)? Or is all of that just more electronic inputs to...
  3. Dealership says not designed to change CVT / Transmission fluid?

    Highlander 3rd Gen - Hybrid (XU50/2014-present)
    My family has a 07 Highlander Hybrid, maintained well. It performs well, part of the reason is because I do preventative maintenance. Recently, at the dealership I tried changing the transmission fluid, diff fluid and the CVT fluid. Dealership told me there is no need to change those, since the...
  4. Cvt adjustable?

    Highlander 1st Gen - Hybrid (XU20/2005-2007)
    My engine RPMs seemed to be gone up. My bad mileage from 21mpg overall went to 17mpg overall. The wife says that the driving sound from the CVT seems louder which agree with. As we all know you can't check fluid but can a transmission shop (not the T dealer) service these transmissions? Can...
  5. 2015 corolla le squeal/whine @ idle

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Hey guys new member here. Has anyone experience a squeal/whine on their 11th gen corolla's at a stop while in drive? Noise disappears when in neutral. It only happens when the car is at operating temp. I think it's my CVT transmission. Not sure if its normal. Going to the dealer in a few days.

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18

  7. Sport button and paddle shifter discussion

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    From time to time I hit the sport button and I love it! What a difference! Of course some of that could be from me getting used to the standard economy mode the car uses 95% of time so it just seems like a larger difference. I've driven many others cars in the past where a "sport" button made...
  8. Slow start.(cvt) i assume this is normal?

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    anyone else when driving the CVT on manual mode experience that even if you punch it on gear 1, it starts very slow, and have the RPM pause a little around 2-3kpm before finishing the ascend? and yes i know CVT aren't designed for this, nor is the entire corolla designed to go 0-40 on first...
  9. What can I do to my CVT? New owner!

  10. Can you change clutch stage in CVT?

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Hello, Sorry I am new to the entire car thing, just bought a 2015 rolla S 3 months ago, and I'm trying to learn about how cars work and more specifically what i can do to my CVT corolla. I'm just wondering if there is anything i can do to my "one gear" system to make it more of an aggressive ride.
  11. Improper downshift from CVT

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Yesterday I was driving on the highway and I wanted to overtake some people. I put the Corolla in Sport mode, switch over to manual mode, and downshifted into the simulated 4th gear, and then quickly into 3rd gear. I gave it a lot of gas when I shifted to 3rd and when I did, I somehow hit the...

  13. Unreliable CVT..!

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    With less than 4500 miles, they had to replace the CVT on my 2014 S Plus Corolla. (by the way, the put a REMANUFACTURED unit) , got it back, now handling is a total mess, they gave it back to me and say that everything is fine with it. I felt so many noises and such a bad handling that sent the...
  14. Towing with highlander hybrid

    Highlander Hybrid
    My question is I was told that I have a pre-wired towing wire harness some place near the back bumper. I have been looking for this thing for 2days now and I can not find it. Does anyone know were it may be, or should I just goto the dealer and have the salesman that told me this find it.
