I seem to be in this club!! I have 2006 AWD 4cyl. 70,000mi shuddering/vibration occurs between 30-40mph 2-3K rpm...my mechanic thought it might have been due to differences in tread wear on my tires (fronts were pretty worn down & rear tires were pretty new)..he claimed this diffrence in tire wear can cause damage to the transfer case...I got new front tires (needed them for the winter anyway) and had my swaybars replaced (unrelated?) found on yearly inspection..this reduced the shuddering quite a bit but not completely...I'm sure any transmission
work would be $$$ but I am out of warranty...I saw one other thread on this issue any advice would be appreciated...I'm thinking I'll have to take it to an independent tranny shop (don't deal with Dealers outside of warranty work)...I've pretty much loved the Rav upto this point..but I'm starting to sweat putty balls now!!
