Hello, good news, toyota recall all check engine and transmission problems!
The did replace my ECU today gladly my tranny still good? They send me a recall notice good for 100k miles or 10 years which ever comes first? In case your ECU is not covered, look for ATC.com they rebuilt ECU (computer) for your car at $189. These will solved your problem, most likely the tranny is ok, unless you end up with bad mechanics who doesnt understand ECU & transmission toyota has?
Even if you are a second owner you should get a recall from the mail? check your local toyota repair? Good luck Philip

Those people are purely CROOKS! Took my 2001 RAV4L with a recall from factory, they refuses to take my care for any repair unless I pay them $100. in advance? Took my car to Glendale Toyota, they were GREAT....! They order my part and schedule me to pick it, in just 2.5 hours my car is like new! They never ask for any money? STAY AWAY FROM HOLLYWOOD TOYOTA !!!!!!!! Ca.

Call Toyota and complain. There shouldn't be any diagnostic or other fee for getting a recall fixed. You may want to notify the NHTSA too.
And please write a review for both dealers:
Dealer Ratings and Reviews
And please don't post your email address on forums; you'll get spammed if you do.

I got the same letter from Toyota.
My transmission had failed and I had the work done at a non-Toyota shop. I was pretty angry about it at the time when my mechanic told me that the Toyota factory technician told him it was an ECM problem in all this model RAV4.
I sent them all the paperwork they requested. They then asked for a letter from the transmission shop. I actually wrote the letter myself and took it to the manager for his signature. Lo and behold....today I got a check from Toyota for the FULL amount.
I figured they'd try and screw me over...but they didn't. Hooray.

I have 2008 rav-4 with 6cyl engine, vehicle has 24K on it and has been humming since I bought it with 12,000 miles. Today I took it to a diff. toyota dealer. They said they have a tech. service bullit. on it and will install dampers (whatever that is) in the tranm. The noise was more pronounced between 35-45mph.. They have to send off for the parts so I will keep you advised.

I have an 02 rav4 that has transmission problems. It has 85k on it and I brought to a transmission shop and they worked on it not 1 but 3 times and still could not fix the problem. I then heard of some sort of recall through toyota for the ECM the computer that controls the transmission and the shop thinks this is the problem. So now I think Toyota will reimburse me for the money I paid to fix the transmission at the shop and the toyota dealership will fix this problem for free. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I had the dampers put on my rav 4, 6 cyl. That seem to solve the problem of the noise. There was a tsb on it. Harry

I took it back to Toyota, they put in a NEW ECM MODULE for free!!!!!
I was told the warranty is good for 10 years or 80k miles(I had 79k!)
Car is running perfect, 6 weeks.
THE ONLY THING THAT WILL CORRECT THE RAV4 TRANNY ISSUES IS A NEW ECM MODULE.

I spoke with you on another forum regarding transmission noise with the A/C on.
Did the new transmission solve the problem?
Thanks. Merry Christmas!
