Breezy_folarinn on Instagram asked: “My car (which is a 2018 Toyota Rav4) has 10,600 miles (bought it brand new), automatic transmission and was wondering if it's normal for the RPMs to increase for a quick second when putting the car in drive from park on a cold start. The car idles at about 1500 RPMs and when you shift to Drive the RPMs increase for about a half second and then go down to normal idle. Is this something I should get checked out or is this something modern cars do?
