RE: Toyota Rav4 acceleration lag issue

Your description allows for at least two, if not several more potential issues. The first one being that the PCM is detecting an issue with the gas pedal, or throttle body and is commanding "limp-in" mode. The second could be something causing a genuine engine performance issue such as a clogged catalytic converter, or a restricted fuel or air filter.

Is the check engine light on? If so can you report what code is setting? Beyond that, a technician will have to look at this and analyze the issue, its not something that anyone could just say what is wrong based on the description alone.
