Been there done that with B/O parts and firmware update.
below 2C, the engine starts with or without heating. Before that, it used to be -12 or -13C…

other than that, i’m very satisfied with the vehicule.

And, of course, the wind noise. Oh my God, that wind noise! I hate it so much. Sometimes it starts even at 50km/h but it's almost unbearable when I am driving above 80km/h.

I didn't notice any in particular when I demo'd a 2021 hybrid. Personally I found the loudest noise to be the tires. I drove it up to 100km/h. I honestly struggled to even hear the engine on it to tell if it was running when on city streets.

Any idea what part of the car the wind noise is coming from?

We have about 4000 miles on our Escape PHEV. Last month we used no gas for the entire month. Just drive around town in electric mode. Have a charger in our garage which is very convenient. Just pull in and plug in. I will have to say we have not had any of the issues Zabrodov has had. Keep my fingers crossed. I have owned 6 Toyotas. All good cars but 'so far' not any thing exceptional over the Escape we have now. I will say the Escape sound system is better than any of the other cars I have had. Don't notice as much road noise as our CRV has. I did have a Tacoma pickup that had the transmission totally fail at 20,000 miles. Toyota replaced with no questions asked. Which I appreciated but wondered if they might have been some issue with the transmissions in the first place or I just got a lemon. Also, owned two Hondas. I actually like the Hondas better than all the Toyotas I have had. Brother in-law has a Honda Accord with over 500,000 miles on it. The most I have every had on a vehicle is around 150K. I looked at the Rav Prime but it could not be towed 4 wheels down and surprisingly the local dealer here would not service it! I would have had to take it to a dealer in the city 100+ miles away.

No real complaints with our 2022 Titanium PHEV so far.Has about 1600 km so far and still on the first tank.Find it to be nice to drive and quiet.Still learning all the driver aids and different drive modes.Will be going on it's first extended trip next week which will be about 600 kms in total.Will see how it makes out steady HWY driving as far as gas usage is concerned.The only thing I would like to see different right now is that in my opinion the side mirrors could be a little larger.I do find that that the view is limited especially in height.I like to see the road at the bumper and still be tall enough to see the full car in the blind spot
