Nick rav4 07
Can anyone give me more information on this. I have a 07 rav4 that dose not have a growling noise but the coupler is loose and rattles. Any help would be appreciated
It sounds like to me it qualifies enough. If it is making noise like a rattle versus a growl, this I would believe should qualify. Have you had a Toyota Dealer check it out yet?Can anyone give me more information on this. I have a 07 rav4 that dose not have a growling noise but the coupler is loose and rattles. Any help would be appreciated
I apologize for seeing this late. It looks like you should qualify for the secondary coverage till 2020 with unlimited mileage but your Toyota Dealer will have to verify that the noise is coming from the rear 4wd differential. If you see this reply, please let us know how your appointment went. Thanks!My 2011 RAV4 has been making a whining sound from the rear end and we thought it was the wear bars on my tires. Today I have new tires installed and the technicians at the tire shop said the sound is coming from the rear end differential. I have 75000 miles so I'm out the standard 60K warranty but also past the April 30, 2017 primary coverage date. Does this mean I fall into the secondary coverage? I have an appt with Toyota service on Monday to diagnose and I'd like to be armed with as much knowledge as I can. Also, toyota has performed every maintenance service until 5K miles ago and never once mentioned this extension to the warranty. I'll be anxious to hear if they offer it once diagnosed.
The wheel bearing is covered by the power train warranty 5year/60,000 miles, so no, it wouldn't be covered.Am having the coupler repair AND right rear wheel bearing replaced today on my 2011 RAV4. Fortunately, diff. work is covered by extended warranty. RRear wb is NOT covered. Am paying $450+ tax out of pocket for that work alone. Hoping it goes well... My RAV has 55,000 miles. We've been hearing the growling noise for some time. Is the r. rear wheel bearing problem related to the rear differential issue?
This is not a Recall. It is a warranty extension and you will to visit your local Toyota Dealer to have them look at it. If it is covered, then they should fix this for free.I just found out from my mechanic that my rear differential is having a problem. He said to contact toyota about the recall as he is aware that this problem is consistent with rav4 2006-2012. I would like to know how to address this. Is my car going to fall apart? What are my options.

Although the Rear Differential Assembly is covered by Toyota’s New Vehicle Limited Powertrain Warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first), we at Toyota care about our customers’ ownership experience.

Also everyone needs to file a complaint with the dept of safety 888-327-4236 hopefully this will push them to do a recallI purchased an used 2007 rav4 in 2015 and in 2016 the rear coupler went out there was no warranty so we had our mechanic replace it and now 3 yrs it has went out again and again no warranty what is going on with this part Ive complained to Toyota and see it is a problem but why haven't they issued a recall
