Kind of runs contrary to what I have seen on this forum concerning the transmission used on the 2006-2012 V6 5-speed transmission. Why not use the right transmission in all RAVs when a new one was developed? That's what you would expect from a company who wants to deliver quality to their customer.
I know that it is cheaper for them to fix it after the defect becomes noticeable since not not all V6 RAVs had the issue (you would not know more but I suppose Toyota had a stockpile of those transmissions or may be there were other reasons) but what about those who find the problem after warranty is over? They are screwed!
BTW, I have an I4, but the way Toyota handled this situation reminds me that, afterall, they are still a corporation who needs to turn a profit and pay dividends to shareholder.
I always value an insider input. So even if I do not agree completely with what you say, I still want to hear more from you
