Since I purchased this car in 2006 I have had problems with driving in the rain. It skids so easy. Tonight I was stopped on a hill, there was a light rain, and when I slowly excellerated the car start to skid and not gain traction. Each time the auto lsd light came one. This happened since I have had the car. It is a 4 cylinder, two wheel drive.
thanks for your help.

Could be cheapo or worn tires.

At 131,000 miles, my 2001 RAV (awd, auto trans) is still running well. It did get a reman trans at 81,000 miles, not eligible for mfr help, unfortunately.
Front disc pads replaced at 6x,000 miles, rear drums not yet.
There is still no other small vehicle that has easily removable rear seats leaving enough floor-to-ceiling room to swallow whole 2 adult road bikes without their wheels removed, so I'm hanging onto it. I still get around 28 mpg on the highway. Plus it was paid for long ago.
Oh, and I still need the cassette player on occasion.

This is a problem with the 01 Rav that Toyota is fully aware of as they were sued by a class acton in the state of Michigan. I had the same problem you experienced BUT I found out the computer was bad before the Dealer sold me their $4000 trans.
I think the mechanics knew about this also but chose to take $3000+ of your dollars first.There was nothing wrong with your seals only the computer.
Check the suit in Michigan. I got a refund from Toyota for the $1200 I spent on the computer.
