Trans axle noise 35 mph to 55 mph

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Vehicle did not make transaxle noise when purchased! After 1500 miles it started a howling noise at light throttle, 35-55 mph it is getting worse, Toyota Tech is supposed to be checking on the reason for it, it has been 21 days and I have heard nothing, I am very dissatisfied with this car! I was told there was a production change, I think I got one of the bad ones. The service dept. replaced an axle at about 5 thousand miles and the axle bearing, but this did not correct the noise I am hearing.
Gas mileage nothing to brag about, Vehicle will not get the 27 mpg on the highway that they advertise.
