    Now that I'm rapidly approaching the 36,000 mile end of the factory warranty and a year of driving, I have some thoughts about what I purchased. I really like the car for sure, with all the tech it does have. I feel very safe. But taking a look at the phone app and infotainment options I'm just not quite there. It used to be a vehicle with the LE for Limited Edition, or just plain Limited, meant you were getting something special that there weren't many of. Now it seems Limited stands for limitations. Yeah, my fault for not reading and comprehending more about what I was getting into. But you know how it is, the bright lights - big city make you key in on the features that it does have and rationalize some later improvement for the features you really can't use. The phone app is basically useless for me unless I need to call for roadside assistance. Even setting up a service appointment with the app just randomly assigns you to one of the service writers. Ah well, I'll enjoy what I can and be better prepared next time.

    I had the same disappointment 5 years ago with my 2017 - sad to see there hasn't been much improvement in this area...

    I don't think a different 2021 model would make a difference in this area.

    I’m really not sure what you’re expecting? It’s not a luxury vehicle. The terminology “limited” is marketing speak and meaningless, and simply conveys that you’re getting all the options available.

    I’ve heard the LE trim on Toyotas described as the Lame Edition. Limited might be different than LE limited edition too. On my 2012 Prius I know it’s the 4 trim, which is a bit easier to understand IMO.
