Trans axle noise 35 mph to 55 mph

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

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.

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage nothing to brag about, Vehicle will not get the 27 mpg on the highway that they advertise.
