Wow... I just logged in here for the first time in ages and I was surprised to see my thread from 5 years ago still going!
Well, it's nice Toyota issued a TSB on this finally. But they screwed me on this issue. While my RAV was still under warranty, I did 3 separate oil consumption tests with my dealer. Each time, Toyota Canada replied that the oil consumption was within acceptable limits.
Toyota's definition of acceptable is 1 Liter per 1000 Kilometers or 1 Quart per 600 Miles! It's right in the owners manual. That is totally ridiculous.
Anyway, my warranty ended and months later, they issue the TSB. I asked about getting mine fixed and was told "sorry, it's not covered since you're out of warranty".
This was the final straw for me along with all the other issues I had with my RAV. I got rid of the vehicle shortly afterwards and they've lost me as a customer.
