Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault on Toyota RAV4

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Same diagnosis reported here. Light came on early in the life of the vehicle, but became problematic at 74,000 mile. Dealer unable to fix, still working with manufacturer to see if they are willing to repair.
The "check engine" light comes on if my gas tank gets lower than half full in town or at speeds of 75 mph on the toll road. It happens more when the temperature is hot (like Austin, TX in August). I am careful to screw on my gas cap correctly.
Check engine light came on and cruise control went out. Dealer said its the evap. Asked if I parked under a downspout or leave the cap off. No.
Wants 1700+ to fix.
rear driver and front passenger window slowly goes up and down, They both slow to a stop and than it goes up.
