Your comment about CVTs also has no relevance.


Rdgrimes, there are several hundred thousand owners of Ford (and Mercury, Lincoln, and Jaguar) 5-speed automatic RWD transmissions who can provide a $3500 repair estimate as a fact. Iím in this number. While true that it was a combination of increased actuation due to more shifting AND ill-advised penny-pinching by not adding a steel sleeve to a bore in an aluminum case, the fact remains that wear and fatigue can happen with every mechanical movement. For the record, that transmission only had three pistons servicing 5 forward gears - first, 2/5, and 3/4. The 2-5 piston moved the most and would typically wear first.

Given the longevity weíve witnessed and the durability testing of engineering mules during development, itís safe to assume that Toyota ensures a reasonably reliable product without the early planned obsolescence (or simply a possible disregard for consequences) we see with other manufacturers of various products.

As a side question, donít you think your response was a touch harsh? I do hope it wasnít intentional, but I donít know if you have a history with the other member. Letís keep it positive

Lexus vehicles had 8-speed transmissions for a while now without any concerns, and T wouldn't be putting them into Lexus if they were not expected to last...

My ES has a 6-speed AT and I am at over 200K now. No concerns with it. Tons of Camrys were produced with 6-speed AT as well...

My point exactly about Toyota running durability testing. They actually DO make sure things last for a long time. My point about wear occurring with movement of parts is valid, but anecdotal experience indicates Toyota actually considers this.

I don't have the highest mileage by any means, but I have 22,000 miles on my 2018 after 9 months of owning it. Got it with 2 miles on it.

You have the highest mileage in the thread so far. (Brendan14 ) 177,000
What year, model?
Have you serviced the transmission - fluid changes? - Or do you believe it lasts for life like Toyota wants us to?

2016 LE AWD- 86,000 trouble free miles, just fluids, filters, brakes, tires.

We are putting about 25,000 miles a year on it.

Put 300k miles on a 2006 RAV4 and sold it to get this one. And those were 300k HARD wearing miles. Living at altitude (8,000'), dirt washed board roads, snow, blasting up huge mountain passes with the pedal smashed to the floor the entire way up every single day. 30k miles a year of this.

Hopefully we make it to 300k with this rav4, if not more.
