I know a lot of the rav4 automatic transmissions have had ECM problems. Did it corrected by 2005?

Also is the 2.4 a reliable engine? I have a 2.0 in my 2002 and it has been great albeit a bit under powered.

2004 and up were pretty much bulletproof.

No, the transmission issues were ECM-related which only affected the 01-03 vehicles. Please know there weren't factory transmission issues in the 01-03, for they manifested from poorly engineered ECMs.

Wife had an '04, got $4500 in trade after 11 years with nearly 150k on it.
Had a bad ECU when brand new, and a bad O2 sensor at about 30k.

No other issues with it.
