Is there anyone local to Sandbach who has a mk2 Rav4 manual. It can be 3dr or 5dr. Just want my daughter to sit in the drivers seat and check the seat adjustment is suitable and the pedals can be reached fine. NOT to drive it. We have seen one many miles away that we like but need to check my daughter is happy If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks
I have seen quite a lot of comments on the web saying avoid the 2.4.. ALWAYS go for the 3.0 ? Is this good advice ? I have seen the following K reg 2.4 Surf, 148k miles, Auto, 12 months mot, cambelt in Nov 2011, excellent condition.. £1400 Advice ?
Thanks for the info. We drove a 1.8 today and really liked it. quite happy with the power compare to a diesel. We have got a T3-X in mind but often see adverts for te 'colour collection' where does this fit in the range ? any good sites/garages other than autotrader where I might find a good one for under £5k ?
Another quick comment.. why is the petrol seen as cheaper.. I calculated based on MPG , fuel cost and car tax and the diesel seems cheaper.. am I missing something ? Engine size:1.8 Litre Petrol Fuel consumption (urban):30.1 mpg Fuel consumption (combined):39.2 mpg Cost Fuel: £1.38 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Local ): £1389 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Combined ): £1067 Car Tax 12 Months: £210 ---------------------------------------- Cost Per Year (AVG): £1438 1.8 Petrol ---------------------------------------- Engine size:2.0 Litre Diesel Fuel consumption (urban):37.7 mpg Fuel consumption (combined):48.7 mpg Cost
Thanks for the answers so far.. a couple of quick questions.. ...Are the diesels that bad! I spoke to my local garage and he has had diesel avensis in for years and never had a head gasket problem ...Petrol maybe an option but we are looking for good mpg , the 2.0 with 26mpg around town sounds a nice engine but not very economical ...The 2.0 D engine was quite nippy, will we notice a big difference with the 1.8 ? Thanks
