It looks like a faulty gasket for oil pan, somewhere near the drain plug. Toyota service technician confirmed and replaced the gasket, it's only been 4 days but so far so good. I'll post an update in a couple weeks.

Hopefully my dealer will replace my gasket hassle free!

b/c it's under 36 months/36,000 miles warranty so they did it for free. your dealer should honor the warranty the same way.

Just out of curiosity, per your VINs can you share with the members here the location of your RAV4s final assembly (i.e. First letter of VIN is "J" indicates from Japan and etc.)? I spoke with a few RAV4 owners here locally, couldn't quit say if there is any commonality so I thought I ask here. Thx!

P.S. There a number of "VIN Decoder" websites in case you need it...

... of the 4 friends I have asked, 3 of them also observed oil leak now including you guys (stefen1990 and hhung516) a total of 5 RAV4s that were assembled in Canada, there seems to be a consistency up to this point. BTW, the one friend's RAV4 and mine (a 2014 model though) were built in Japan, so far so good keeping our fingers crossed. Thank you all for sharing! I wonder if "jest" VIN also starts with a "2".

ok, definitely a trend here. maybe that's why the service advisor was so nice to offer me free repair no questions asked, I suspect they already know about the issue.
