I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:
The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.
There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.

You are quite welcome. Don't worry about the Lock button being on a few times, there is a fail-safe that unlocks it.
...My "new" salespeople has told our customers on a few occasions that the 4WD "kicks in/kicks out"...needless to say, they were quickly corrected. Glad to be of service to you today. The graciousness of a FixYa rating regarding my assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for choosing FixYa for the answer to your question.

If you are check at shifter and connecting cables and linkage... and nothing apparently broken, then you have a problem with the fifth gear fork/hub assembly inside the transmission. This is a somewhat common problem with this unit.
Does your RAV pop out of 5th gear at all? If it doesn't, I suggest you replace the transaxle fluid with synthetic gear lube to make sure the gears and bearings are kept well lubricated (if you haven't already done so to improve mpg).
I doubt that holding it in gear will make the 5th gear wear more quickly. It might even slow the wear that causes it to pop out of gear. However, maintaining pressure on the shift lever will increase the wear between the shifter fork and the sleeve, which could eventually compromise shifting into 5th.
Hope this helps.
