I’ve had the car for three days and I’m in love. Headed 50mi out to Leo Carrillo beach tomorrow with the pup and sister, now I’m just looking for excuses to drive it! :)

What’s the consensus on actively switching between D and B modes while driving? I find it really helpful while driving in the city and in traffic, but I don’t want to do any damage to the car if there’s an issue in doing that. Thanks!

There are not even mechanical switches in the gearshift... it is a Hall Effect Sensor

Copy that, figured as much. :)

Tony- can't wait to buy one of your Jdemo units! Already missing the QC capability I've always had on the Leaf. Think that will be a real game changer for the RAV.
