Bass I dont want - 2022 platinum hybrid road noise

I bought a brand new Toyota Highlander platinum hybrid, 2022. I’ve owned Mercedes and a whole bunch of other cars but the noise from this literally hurts my ears. Really sucks because I wanted to keep this car forever but now I wanna get rid of it because the low bassy vibration is absolutely terrible. I have seen some people talking about a foot to radiator seal, hoping that might help. I want to fix this but its some serious xxxxxxxx. I like bass but this suckd toyota… 😢

Decent

Seats are kind of hard. The charging mat inside the console sucks because it never stays connected to charge anything for more than like 4 minutes (if that long). I have had my Highlander for a year and it is back at the dealership due to an "airbag system malfunction" already. The seatbelt alarm glitches.

5.0
