    Hello, new member here. My Fiance and I just purchased a 2015 Rav4 with the 6 speed automatic. According to Carfax, it was a one-owner vehicle and had the engine oil changed every 5k miles at Toyota, and also had the front and rear differential fluids changed at 45k miles and 75k miles. The car...

    G'day all, My Rav has been making a whirring noise in the seconds after I engage forward or reverse drive the first time after I start the motor. I've looked around online a bit and asked the mechanics at the Toyota service centre to look into it during the last service and have had no luck...

    2011 V6 Sport w/ pre-tow package. Currently the transmission has mostly Amsoil synthetic fluid but I just did a drain and fill with Valvoline Maxlife. I don't exactly recall when this started, but there is something curious/concerning that occurs sometimes with the transmission shifting. There...

    For those of you with the 8-speed transmission, if you turn off your radio, do you hear the transmission changing gears when coming to a stop? Let's say 40 km/h down to 0. I brought mine to the dealer and explained the issue. The mechanics plugged in its computer and went for a ride but...

    I am facing slow drop in RPM after releasing the accelerator. There is noise that lasts much longer than normally. Also seems slower/less effective acceleration.

    2009 Rav 4, 2.5L, Auto. My transmission has been slipping or lagging since I got it about a year and a half ago. It only happens between 1st and 2nd gear both going up or down. I thought it would be good to at least try the Lucas Transmission Fix to see if it helps but don't want to cause...

    I have two 2013 Toyota RAV4s. One is FWD and needs a replacement transmission. The second is an AWD and was recently in an accident and is likely to be totaled. I’m wondering if I can get that transmission swapped as a lesser cost replacement?

    2001 Toyota RAV4 2 It's a 2001 so don't want to spend a lot of money on it. There are two "lower" gears below "drive". The one immediately below "drive" works. But the lowest one causes the car to stop with a jolt. It had the well-documented ECM ECU car computer issue. Per a mechanic, the...

    Hi all, I recently bought an automatic 2000 Rav 4 from a second hand car dealer. Full disclosure, I'm not particularly car literate and have only previously owned manual cars but I thought a 22 year old Rav 4 would be pretty reliable, it test drove well, and my budget/need vs the inflated...

    Hey guys. About a week ago, I replaced both front CV axles on my '98 RAV4. Everything has been fine until today. Leaving work I noticed that reverse isn't engaging fully.
