So I entered my vin into the nhtsa site but as you said no recalls. Person I spoke to at Toyota Headquarters told me there was a recall. This is what I found under my car's history on the Toyota site. Work was done in Jan, 2016 and warranty of 12 months only!! Obviously must be a common issue to break down again in 2019 soon after my 5 year warranty expired. Toyota says they are reviewing my case and should decide by Friday. I plan on fighting this if they don't cover 100%

This also came up:

In the involved RAV4 EV, components in the Electric Vehicle Traction Motor Assembly, which is part of the propulsion system, may cause the vehicle to shift to “neutral” due to a software issue. This condition will also trigger a “Check EV System” warning message on the instrument panel and turn on a malfunction indicator lamp. If the vehicle shifts to “neutral”, this will result in a complete loss of drive power, which can increase the risk of a crash.
Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail. Toyota dealers will repair the electric vehicle traction motor assembly.

"Due to a software issue" -- which means the repair is simply a software update.

That's what they did. If you look at the repair history you posted, you'll see |~SOFTWARE UPDATE ~| embedded in the codes

From memory, that recall is a software update that loosens the tolerance on the incoming signal from the speed sensor. That's what I'm remembering, anyway.

Regardless of what a Toyota dealer might tell you, your traction motor assembly is warranted for 5 years / 60,000 miles from new. It doesn’t matter how many owners there were (and any competent dealer would know that... the dealer is attempting to extract money out of YOU and from the warranty... “double-dipping”).

There are 3 recalls on the 2012-2014 Toyota RAV4 EV:

1) US GOVERNMENT - software update

2) Toyota - windshield wipers

3) Toyota - seat belts

I highly recommend that you purchase the 5 year / 60,000 mile Toyota Platinum used car warranty (assuming your car is less than 9 years old and less than 100,000 miles). If your car is over 100,000 miles, the. 3 year / 36,000 miles is available.
