Except for the literally thousands of people who have done exactly that.
Again, many many people have done exactly this. There’s just no aftermarket option yet for AWD models.
I also live in Iowa and I’m convinced that your thermometer is broken.
You really don’t. Climate system works fine. Too many people just don’t read the manual and mistakenly keep it in Eco mode on those mythical 105 degree 100% humidity Iowa days instead of setting it to normal so it can keep up with the temp differential btw the outside and inside.
There is no such charge. It’s included free. For 10 years on majority of trims.
For someone who reads so much, you sure do have a lot of misconceptions and errant claims.
Either way, if you don’t want one, then cool. That leaves one more available for others who are literally waiting 6 months or more on average to get one. ✌
The Rear suspension on the AWD is exactly the same as the FWD. Exactly. I have looked at them side by side, as well as checked part numbers. the lower trailing arms are exactly the same, as are the springs. The airbags for the FWD work on the AWD just fine. I have them, and i have an AWD.
As far as the remote start goes, he is correct here. if you don't subscribe to the toyota remote connect services, the remote start from the FOB will not work. Toyota has backed off some, but the car itself does a server check to see if you are subscribed, and if you are not, the car won't turn on or start. Both my 21 Sienna LE and 20 HiHy platinum will work without the subscription, but this is simply because I raised the concern with my state AG about post sale feature removal, and toyota literally turned on my remote start capability for my two vehicles for 10 years or until I sell them(AKA, that remote start won't transfer to a new owner). But only for me, and only because I complained. My MILs new 20 camry had her subscription run out mid winter, and it would not start from the fob. she was pissed.
Also, despite the popular belief, the base model LE does indeed have the cell transmitter for the remote services. all vans do, its part of the infotainment control computer. Toyota collets a massive amount of data about your driving and the vehicle, so why would they opt to not put that capability in the lower cheaper trims?
with the remote start thing, im sure as soon as the media trail and AG complaints die out, they will be removing the remote start functionality to a majority of their customers, and those customers will never notice. Toyota has not made any official announcements about what you state regarding the support for 10 years on the remote start without a subscription. in fact, their own response to my complaint literally used weasel words to try and get out of responsibility for their blatant misrepresentations of how the system works.
