    Water..oil Dripping

    and they told me to p-ss off.......it feels a bit threatening now my wife is very worried and wants to forget it and let it go;and he said had to spend some money on the car that I px-ed with him and he will be happy to talk to the trading standards. for ripping him off, my car was fine by the way he wouldn't take it until he had run a full diagnostics test on it; which was all clear.. I pointed out to him the Rav had 4 problems head gasket...which does seem to be ok now... very poor cold starting no heater. dodgy service record , I cant be 100% sure but the trade add said 98K miles this was Jan 2013. but in the service book the milage says on 07 11 12 the rav had already done 102900k I'm going to contact Auto trader and hope they archive their trade adds for a while, then go from there. I'm sorry that I might seem a pain to you guys..just keeping updated cheers

    Water..oil Dripping

    yes I have rejected the rav now
  3. This is becoming a nightmare, now there is water dripping from the from of my RAV....in several places. and further back to the left as you look under from the front of it looks like oil..... And it's not starting very well.. it's misfiring trying to start, it takes several turns of the key.....once started it's ok for the rest of the day unless it a cold start..... The dealer is dragging their feet and not returning my calls... the list of faults is getting longer. I took it to Toyota never seen it so busy in there, they had lots of cars back on recall and cant fit me in yet. They offer a great service fault diagnosis free of charge with no appointment needed but that's has changed since they looked after my Celica.... that's it for today

    The Heater

    Very strange. Our 02-reg vvti auto's heater & a/c work just as well now as they did when it was new. Your garage sounds as if it's run by idiots or else they're just not bothered about your business. I reckon it could be

    The Heater

    Thank you for all the replies..there is no water loss the head has been done, the pipes into the heater and out get nice and hot, so that would indicate the water is circulating normally (I hope) The temp gauge gets up to half way within a mile or two. Every thing appears to be normal....

    The Heater

    the heater in the RAV is not that good really...it's get warm in the middle vents but blows cold into the footwell..the heater pipes are hot all-round the garage don't seem to have any idea they just say it's an old car..........so any of you owners have any thoughts please
  13. I have my rav back now........seems to be ok so far.......
  14. .........well maybe I'll give them one last chance...to put it right..I really don't know how a huge dealership can be so rubbish.. it's all a little complicated..I brought the RAV from a dealer, who had the work done at the dealership, (Head Gasket) so the work is still under their warranty, this is the second time they have done this..... Admirable patience, mucker.....money back and look at the For Sale section (ebay and here....same thing.) Hunnerz of good Ravs to be had. Good luck. my patience is very thin now....p-rr-s of Aylesbury.....
