Transfer case leak cause by broken transmission shaft. New transmission was installed. New transmission locked up on highway when I was leaving the dealership, leaving almost 130feet of rubber on the road. 3rd transmission was installed, after 3 days the 3rd transmission failed the same way the 1st did, downshifting to 1st gear for no reason when going 45mph, front wheels lock up, lose control.
Dealer tried to reproduce problem, no error codes. Couple days later, 4th transmission did same thing in a parking lot. Toyota Canada didn't believe. Dealership put me in 2012 Rav4 at low cost since they might have caused the recent problems.
