Beware of Transmission Problems
By Unhappy Camper on
Vehicle
2002 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I am the original owner of this vehicle. I bought it because of Toyota's excellent reputation. At 87k miles I started having transmission problems. My car would rev up between gears and felt like it was slipping. At times it would hesitate and go into gears hard. I took it to Toyota and they knew right away what the problem was. They said that it was the ECU/ECM. It's the computer that tells the transmission when to shift. It was a very bad design and Toyota no longer has it in their newer models. The cost for a new computer is over $1500 with no guarantee it will even fix the problem. A new trans is over 3k so all together I could have $4500 in this vehicle. Not a happy camper...
Suggested Improvements
Toyota should stand by their flub ups and recall this item.
