I bought my rav4 new in 2003 and I still love it.
June 27, 2018
Has over 189,000 miles when in Jan. 2018 began having minor hints of shifting issues, I assumed it needed spark plugs, but by June, shifting was much worse. Replaced Ecm, and had refurbished tranny put in. Shop had it for a month and still has issues. Toyota won't help even though they know of these same problems happen to many other rav4's from 2001-2003 suffer same things. Cost me $5,897.79 , only now, the tranny place is responsible for what further repairs it needs still. NOT HAPPY with them or TOYOTA.
