4th Gen Highest Mileage - Post your High Mileage 4th Gen
I'm trying to get a baseline on how long the 4th Gen, 6-speed automatic transmissions last. Since the announced 2019 will have 8 speeds, it stands to reason that more gears equals more shifts and may shorten the total life expectancy of the transmission. I currently have a 2nd gen rav4, with a 4 - speed automatic, and they are known for getting 200k miles+ regularly with some over 250k or even 300k. Can the 4th and 5th gens even compete?
Are the 6 speeds regularly getting to 200k+?
If not, what average age / mileage do they die?
Can the 8 - speed realistically get that long of a life?
~ After watching the Weber Auto Channel on this type of transmission, I'd have to think not because of the return of the band, but it's still not as bad as a CVT. See Youtube: Aisin 8-Speed FWD Transaxles - (Wouldn't let me post link)
Please post how many miles you have on your 4th gen Rav4, the higher the better.
