    Jeez--I just checked Toyota's website yesterday, and it wasn't there. Nice!

    I wanted to publicly announce that Monty has made good on his word, and I feel that this deserves to be recognized.

    Well the RAV4 Hybrid from your link is sold and no longer available.

    Would you mind to explain what happened between you and Monty on this RAV4 Hybrid bet?

    He bet we would have cx5d for sale on us soil first. We didn't. Then we bet the cx5 turbo perfomance would be far superior to the mazda quoted 7+ to 60. It was. He wanted a steak from me if these things had gone the other way. They didn't. He's paying up and honoring his word.

    OK, I see. But you really sent him the bill for your steak dinner?

    So this has nothing to do with RAV4 Hybrid then?

    My payment from Monty was indeed brought to me, today. He may be late, but he handled his business. Respect.

    Speaking of respect, diesels and tardiness..this (finally) is something from VW that I thought was well done and in the right tone, as opposed to "we're sorry we got caught and your government said we have to do this so here ya go"
