  1. Hi guys, I just turned 100K miles on the RAV4. I changed the spark plugs at 90K, but didn't have any adjustments made. (Tune up) Now, it's still running fine, but I notice that when I'm going slow (1200 RPM) and I just touch the gas pedal, to maintain my speed, the engine vibrates lot, and sounds rough. It didn't do this before, it ran very smoothly. Do I need to bring it in to Toyota for an adjustment or something? This minor problem started a couple thousand miles ago, long after I changed plugs It still keeps running, but I find it's just not right! I hope it's just a simple adjustment. It's way out of warranty, and I don't want to change a computer ($$$$) for this little problem.
  2. While I agree with you, that the problem should have been addressed at the differential service. But, these things can happen suddenly, without any warning. How long ago did you notice this problem? Did it start suddenly? The Drive Train warranty is for 100k miles only. After that, it's up to you to pay for fixing it. Sorry about the $3100 bill. While it is unpleasant to's not that high. If you intend to keep it for a long time, you have to be prepared to fix it sometime. Nothing lasts forever, unless you put money into it!

  3. Both my wife and I, get most of our service done at the Toyota dealer's on a regular basis. They have factory trained mechanics for Toyota products. They are the only people who specialize in Toyotas. They are expensive, but I want good people to work on my car. In the past, I used to trust other mechanics, but often they don't do things right. I like to keep my cars 10+ years. I don't want it messed up by some stupid mechanic! That's my preference!!!! It's your as you see fit. Bob K
  4. I have a 2015 RAV4 that I bought new in Sept. 2014, when they first came out. It has 98,000 mi. on it now, and I intend to keep it as long as I can. I change the synthetic oil every 10K mi.. I recently changed the coolant, bought new Yokahama Geolander AT tires, a new AAA 6 yr. battery, and the transmission fluid has been changed. Hopefully, I can go another 98K miles, without any problems. Both me and my wife are long time, loyal, Toyota owners.
