Well people see this because that time CR automatically gives Toyotas a recommended rating based off of the previous model or something like that. I don't remember the details.

Anyways but the first year woes is why I waited for a 2013. I'm pleased with my loaded Titanium.
However, I did drive a 2012 rental for a while and did not experience the tranny issues most people have. Only thing I felt was I knew the dual clutch tranny was different and it definitely did not act like the conventional torque converter style
