Hello! Newbie here..... Bought 2005 Rav4 XT5 from garage and collected it on Saturday. MOT etc all there. 5 or 6 hours later....(after driving from Sunderland, to Thirsk, to Hartlepool) and realise have a flat tyre!!!! Bit !Removed! annoying really, only 5 hours after buying it...... anyway.....everything was on mega tight so took forever to get off, couldn't inflate it because the tyre valve thingy appears to be cracked? With a chip in the side? and my pump, and air pump at petrol station won't fit it. After much perserverence and trying many different pumps, manage to inflate it somewhat but only once OFF the car (so changed wheel.....). Think ok.....bad luck maybe....perhaps it is slow puncture and can get sorted.....no need to panic/get annoyed..... Check rest of wheels for tyre pressure etc and find 2 of the other tyre valves are ALSO chipped/cracked broken. Tyre pressure on another wheel is low, so take it to petrol station today and try to inflate and won't inflate! Because of chipped/cracked valve thingy so wheel goes flat! ARGH! So have to change wheel again (back to somewhat inflated one that became spare.....) MEGA annoying! Question really is, has anyone else come across cracked/chipped tyre valves like this? Which won't inflate with pumps and if so any words of wisdom on what to do? Do you reckon we should contact garage got it from and complain? Is just so annoying.......that just don't know what to do now really! Hope someone has some words of wisdom, or similar experience to share...... thanks!
