I waited a while for others to answer because I am not 100% sure but I think the shifter has plastic or rubber bushings to keep gearstick from going to far and when they get wore out or come loose that could allow cables to get streached faster than normal.
A member named PIM has parts views for just about every part on the RAV4 4.1
so take a look at his page.
