I replaced the auto trans filter on my 2012 RAV4. The problem is this: The filter that I bought for a 2012 trans was the wrong shape and size. After much research and trading filters, I found that the filter I pulled from my trans only fit a 2003 trans. This has me totally confused. I bought this car new so it should be a 2012 model. Or am I missing something here?

I'd start by asking with the dealer you bought it from why this is. If you are not near the original dealer, then the one close to you that you trust. It sounds strange but maybe there is a logical explanation.

Do you have the v6 or 4 cylinder?...you would not be the first person to buy a trans filter for a 4 banger while having a v6 or vise versa...
