SAM LOVERS HER TOYOTAS

Had A Look At M 1St Rav Today But No Nothing About Them

Recommended Posts

HI ALL

We've looked at a Toyota Rav4 2.0 vvti xt4 5door today, a totally beautiful machine, 1 owner/2007/manual/petrol...now we've always only ever driven Toyotas for years now, we've been through from the Yaris,Carina,Avensis,and currently have the Corolla...but have never considered the Rav4...which is why we're a bit weary....

Are there any common known issues i should be aware of? Is servicing/parts them failry expensive? And are they really thirsty for town driving?

I look forward to hearing from some of you. Thank you.

Hi Sam.

Well we hadn't even looked at a Rav before nor took much notice of em until about 16 months ago when Mrs P was looking for a convertible car and spotted a 2002 VVTI Rav on the forecourt and as soon as she sat in it she loved it :eek:

Took it for a good test drive and she had it there and then,which was an even bigger shock to me.

Now she has a 2004 model with low mileage and still loves the ride/drive in it.I've never known her to take such an interest in a car before.

By all accounts the petrol Rav is pretty much bomb proof with its only downside been the poor fuel economy.

Hi Sammy,

We've got two 4.2 vvti's, a 5-dr & a 3-dr. Love 'em. As Paul has said, the only downside is that mpg isn't as good as some (but, then again, there are worse around). In every other respect they are virtually bomb-proof.

Ours have had only routine servicing and the 5-dr, which is 02-reg, has had a few EMS sensors over the years, all on extended warranty.

Hi Sammy, don,t blame you looking at the Rav!!!! I know I rave on about the U/C, but given the choice between both cars I would always go for the Rav first. I,ve had two versions and they where without doubt the best cars I ever had.

How,s that for a recomendation!!!!!

Regards Clare
