Doesn anybody has the same problem?.
Also there is a noise under the rav, most of the time when crossed wind is on the highway.
No rattles in our V-6 AWD LTD since the moonroof was snugged down a few months ago. We have 8K+ miles over some pretty rough roads w/o any noise complaints of late.
However, the actual source of noises (rattles) can be misleading. It helps to have someone take a position in the back of the vehicle to listen - being careful not to eliminate noises from loose seats or seat-belt buckles, etc.
Also, secure tools and such that may have loosened over time. Another rattle / noise source is the cross-bars of the roof rack.
Last, check to see that the spare and cover are snug as noises can be transmitted thru the car even if it originates from outside.
