Hi all, I'm looking for a cheap but reliable family car (2 adults 2 kids and a dog) at around £2k and a 100k mile or so 2nd generation RAV4 is on my radar (2005ish).
I've read all the used reviews, dug up what I can on parkers and honest john etc, but the real info is always from other owners and my search-fu on here seems to be weak. I'm aware of possible DMF and EGR issues if I go for a diesel, but is there anything else I should know? Any issues with the petrol engine? Things to look out for in general?
Am also considering the Honda CRV for the bigger boot, but it's as ugly as a bag or rocks compared to the RAV4.
Sincere thanks in advance for any advice.
