The woofer on my Rav ltd makes an awful vibration when I'm playing some bass intestive tunes, like its not screwed in properly, but its the least of my worries with the rattles coming from both the B pillars. I have the Blizzard Pearl paint on my Rav and so far so good.

I have the same issues you're having, or had. Were you able to get these issues fixed? If so, what was the fix so I can bring it as a suggestion to me dealer.
#65 of 103 2008 RAV4 4 cylinder 4wd limited Engine Whine
Nov 19, 2010 (7:50 pm)
Took 2008 RAV4 into toyota dealership shortly after buying used (48,000 miles) because I noticed a high pitched, electronic sounding whine that is most noticeable on the passenger side starting at 43 mph, on up to around 70 mph. Toyota looked up TSB's and found one for this particular problem and ordered the parts (dampeners). When the dampeners arrived and they went to put them in, they realized they didn't fit because the TSB was only for the V6 model, mine is the 4 cylinder. They said there was nothing they could do since mine isn't covered by the TSB. Im getting pretty nervous because step 2 of that TSB (if the dampeners turned out to be ineffective) was replacement of the transmission. Im now at 50,000 mi, so very close to running out of drivetrain warranty. The sound is really annoying on roadtrips when your primary speed is 65 mph-- sound is excruciatingly annoying-- impossible to drive without the radio cranked. Anyone else had this problem on their 2008 4 cylinder RAV4?

Have 2006 rav4, 4cyl, 4wd, 118k miles: it has a real loud rattle/drone/noise sounds like from around the transmission area. It is way more than a whine. Toyota place and non toyota said they think it is the transmission for which is $2000 to $5000. There is a TSB on the 6cyl's that replaces the ECM for a drone noise. Has anyone tried this fix for the 4cyl's?? any help appreciated. Trying to decide to trade off or fix. And scared to pay them for a tranmission repair and does not fix the problem.
#68 of 103 My Rav4 Needs HELP
Jan 06, 2011 (10:38 am)
I have a 08 Rav4, I brought it brand new. I have been having problems with 1) the back tire roars loudly. I have taken it to the dealer and had the maintenance done on it to keep up with my warranty (which has not been cheap) But all they do is say " I don't hear it" 2) They tell me the same thing about a noise several of my friends and family has heard. It come along when you accelerate it almost sound like coins in a coffee can. Does anyone know about this my warranty is about to run out My truck does not even have 35,000 miles on it. I have been told that its been an on going problem and the 2nd problem is from the transmission. Can someone please help me?

In my Toyota RAV 4 2007 basic, I just noticed the check engine, low engine oil pressure are on after I turn the engine off. Maintenance light is blinking after I lock the car..when I open the hood, I can hear some humming noise even after everything is off. Wondering what this might be...
any advice is appreciated..
Thanks in advance.

that humming might be your fan trying to cool down your engine due to over heating, you are about to burn your car. check your oil it is low, its time to change oil.
