I'm changing the transmission fluid. The manual states :

Transmission
Fluid capacity (Reference)* 1.26 qt. (1.2 L, 1.05 Imp. qt.)
Fluid type Mobil Dexron VI
*: The capacity is a reference quantity. If replacement is necessary, contact
your Toyota dealer.

Since the manual does not state the actual capacity I looked up Tesla's.

According Tesla S and X specs, here are the transmission fluid capacities :

Front, small drive unit : 1.8 qt
Rear, small drive unit : 2.4 qt
Rear, large drive unit : 1.5 qt

Which drive unit is in the Rav4 EV???

Cheers

The Mitchell manual says capacity is a reference quantity, 1.26 quarts.

Is the 1.26 quarts capacity standard for a vehicle of these specs?
