Waterproof?

Recommended Posts

Gonna find out just how watertight the Rav is today I feel. Currently in Swanage visiting my Dad and soon to leave on a 620 mile trip back up to Aberdeen. Weather forecast not looking good :bored:

Take it easy mate and you will be fine. The police were saying that a lot of accidents could have been avoided if motorists had been driving according to the conditions at the time.

Came across two on the way home from work on Thursday night both down to aqua planing.

Go carefully and have a safe journey.

Well I've made it, just under 13 hours of horrendous conditions and idiot drivers. Big thanks to everyone for the good wishes and advice and a Special Thankyou to MR Toyota for making such a brilliant car. Have to say that it didn't miss a beat and from the computer has averaged out at 46.7 mpg. No doubt a bit optimistec but still !Removed! good.. Rav's Rule OK! :clap:

13 hours sounds good going in the horrendous weather we've had. I will be heading in to Scotlandshire in the first week of the new year, will be taking the L.C in case the white sticky stuff decides to come down heavily, it's just short of 1k miles round trip.
