What year is the Rav? I don't have a clue about transmission shops out there. I like Rav 4's, we have an '05 Sport. We were looking for one about ten years ago when I mentioned it to my barber and he knew of one about a half mile from us. It has a standard transmission, it would have already been sold otherwise. My wife was a farm girl and it is her car. Her brother bought an'09 and his has an auto that makes a noise that has been troubleshot to the transmission .
