Question about 2006 Toyota RAV4
After parking in my garage overnight, when I back out and then shift to forward at idle speed there is a very large clunk that happens in the rear section of the vehicle. This only happens when the car is cold, and ocasionally during the day, but mostly in the morning first thing.
Initially, I would suggest have a look at or replace the rear brake pads (most likely). Thereafter, if problem persist, check the rear suspension rubber bushings including the stabilizer bar rubber mount bushings (a possibility).
Of course another possibility (though least likely) is a loose object/component ontowards the rear.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Try warming up the engine in idle for a bit before actually reversing from your garage. Many models have this issue when trying to go into drive straightaway without warming up the engine sufficiently.
Also, dont shift into drive gear when the idling speed is on the higher end. Wait for the revs to fall to minimal before engaging the drive gear.
If these solutions dont help, then there could be a problem with the transmission itself (although I doubt it). However, it is best to get a mechanic do a physical test on the machine to properly diagnose the issue..
Hope that helps!
