Is there a warranty on the 2007 RAV4 drive shaft?


Asked by May 08, 2014 at 08:38 AM about the 2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Rear differential maintenance done per the maintenance schedule. Now the RAV4 sounds like an airplane inside when driving. Is this the driveshaft or something else?

It is the rear viscous coupling. Our mechanic suggested to do research - to look for a Technical Service Bulletin. An American TSB was found, which was honored by the local Canadian dealer. The repair was done, no charge even though the vehicle is beyond the power train warranty - 60 months/60,000 miles - 2007 / 120,000 kms. We were impressed.
