Was driving home yesterday and the RAV started jerking like power to the drive unit was being interrupted. Coasted for a bit and then drove the last mile home - it seemed normal but I was taking it easy.
Took it out tonight for a short drive, 2 miles at low speed, and it seemed fine until I stopped to back into the driveway. When I shifted to reverse it immediately had problems backing up. I was able to drive forward and pull into the driveway but it was having problems and losing power.
There are No error or dash lights indicating a problem.
Thoughts on what might be wrong, anything I should look at before calling the dealer?

Likely problems include a misbehaving parking pawl or motor coolant in the drive inverter. The latter should throw some errors though.
Most likely, you will need a new or rebuilt drive unit. I hope you have extended warranty coverage.
