Has anyone else heard of this?
I have a 2001 rav4 but it's a manual transmission. 200,200 miles on it ... but I seem to be having the same symtoms on my car... but only on first to second gear and second to third gear. I love my rav4...I the first owner.... but it becomes dangerous when moving from a stop light but it then almost like it brakes. Fyi... I just want to know what is wrong with it so I can repair it.Hi, sorry if this is the wrong place for this question...is there any way to find out if a rav4 01 is going to have dodgy transmission with a mechanic inspection? I am thinking of buying one at a good price with low km. Not sure whether to buy it or not. What proportion are affected?? I am in Australia.
