Happened 3 times in 3 months that while driving, display "reboots" and goes from 80+ miles to less than 10 miles.
After power cycle, everything seems normal again.
Had the dealer read the codes 3 times.
Today they said they ordered a new computer, normally $4000 but will be exchanged under warranty
PS: this is on my former rav4ev that I sold.

Was your car still under warranty when they replaced it? Did you have extended warranty on it?

What trouble codes have been read during the diagnosis?
Which ECU was replaced?

It was repaired under warranty.
Then I sold a week before turning 3 year old and within 36k miles.
New owner bought extended warranty.
I had the cabin heater & l1/l2 charger replaced about a month before I sold it, under warranty.
The heating unit was (again) replaced about a year later under extended warranty.
Last week he had the motor unit replaced (under warranty) because of the noise in the bearing (second motor change)
50k miles now.

If I would have known what I know now, I would not have sold my rav4ev to a friend.

Sorry, was replaced after I sold it.
New owner didn't ask ;-)
