  1. General maintenance questions

    4.4 General
    Still haven't hit 60,000 yet. We don't drive a lot. Just had the oil changed and I am still wondering what really needs to be done as far as maintenance. What do y'all think should be done at 60K??
  2. General maintenance questions

    4.4 General
    I've got a 2014 limited AWD and I'm at the same point, close to 60,000 miles and wondering what really needs doing maintenance wise. I'm going to have the motor oil and AWD system oils changed but I don't know if changing transmission fluid is needed or not. I've read where some recommend...
  3. Losing Sirius XM reception in one direction.

    4.4 Interior
    You may have to consider the possibility that the satellite reception is as weak as the entire RAV4 Entune system itself. Worst factory system ever!
  4. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    4.4 Mechanical
    The service schedule shows changing trans fluid at 60,000 if heavy use, otherwise they just inspect it. I wonder how they do that?? I'm taking mine to a different dealership in the next month or so (when I reach 60,000) and see what they say about it. I'll definitely have them change the AWD...
  5. JBL Premium Audio Sound Fix

    4.4 Interior
    I think this would work well in my 2014 non JBL too.
  6. TRAC and VSC OFF

    4.4 Electric RAV4 Hybrid & EV
    There is a sticky in the General 4.4 forum that explains it very well.
  7. 2016 RAV4 XLE radio replacement

    4.4 Interior
    Which still may sound better than the disaster that Toyota put in my Rav4. Sure, it won't do 106 different functions, but it might sound better.
  8. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    4.4 Mechanical
    Change at 60,000 miles if heavy use. I would think that would mean dropping the pan and replacing filter, not just hose it out.
  9. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    4.4 Mechanical
    I'm wondering if my Toyota dealer in Gresham is on the level. Today I stopped by the service dept. because my "Service Req'd" dash light cam on last week. Time for a tire rotation? Only $89 bucks, and they do the "service inspection" too while they're at it. No thanks. It has only been about...
  10. Whats your avg fuel economy for your 2013 Rav4?

    4.4 General
    20.4mpg over a year and a half, 98% light footed city driving in normal mode, 2014 Limited AWD. Also when I stop on a hill in Drive my car will roll backwards with brake off, does anybody else's car do that? Are we low on transmission fluid or weak torque converter contributing to lower than...
  11. $250 Gives Great Sound Improvement

    4.4 Interior
    Is that why the back speakers are so much lower in volume? If backs are a single 8ohm and the front are both also 8ohm, the front would be a 4ohm load and way louder. Has anyone installed 4 ohm speakers in the back doors and had a volume increase to match the front sound??
  12. What Did You Do With Your Rav4 Today...?

    4.4 General
    Has anybody here tried to add this to a 2014 Limited?? Is there a Toyota upgrade kit?
  13. Rav4 vs Colorado Jeep trail

    4.4 General
    I know that guy was lucky. But I was also wondering if the Rav would have done better on that first area and overall if the VSC and/or TRAC was off and the AWD lock switch was on? The video didn't show how he had anything set or if he was just driving in "normal" mode.
  14. Entune Permium Saved Destinations.

    4.4 Interior
    You've summed up Toyota Entune beautifully.:D

    4.4 Interior
    I have a 2014 Limited and the (non JBL) radio is the weakest thing in the car. It tries to do so much that it doesn't do any one thing very well. If you hold in the on/off volume button for a few seconds the unit will reboot without having to shut off the car. On mine it seemed to help to...
