And a RAV4 with 116,000 miles is just getting broken in.

The Flutter is more up and down... The daughters been driving the queen for the last 3 years... But as soon as i drove the car I felt that strange bouncie motion. 2 days ago it happened on the 9.5 mile drive to work and I think it was more pronounced. It definitely made me uncomfortable. We are dropping her off on Friday night oil change(a little early) and fix the bounce.

My estimate is a grand or so...

I am a believer of keeping these older cars that are low mileage not causing any real problems. I do have a question for you and others..... How often are you replacing the timing belt or having the timing chain checked??
