  1. I'm pretty sure the Black Edition was around 38-39k list price (without any extras) when I looked at it on the Toyota website last year just before they stopped offering it. I don't know for sure, but 36.8k sounds like a decent price to me for that spec. That might have been the AWD model though. Anyway, it is a lovely car and you're paying less than you would do if you ordered an equivalent now, so I think you are doing OK at that price. The drive-away insurance was great from Toyota for me, but I would caution you to shop around for the full insurance. The quote they gave me was ridiculous compared to what I ended up paying elsewhere (really silly - like £1.3k more). I must not meet the criteria for the kind of customers they are looking for right now.
  2. Yes, you get 3 days "drive away" insurance free with the new car if you apply, though there is an excess if you claim on it. I think the idea is that it is sometimes hard to get other insurance ready for the pick up day if it hasn't yet been registered (as some insurers will want the reg). Also, it means Toyota Insurance get to provide a (comedy high) quote for the rest of the year. I took it and it was good, and they included the Mrs on there. Make sure the dealer has actually activiated it after approval though, and get them to print out the certificate for you. Others on this forum have reported that they only found later that the dealer hadn't done that and they had driven home uncovered.
  3. Picked up my Adventure today. Ordered in early January, so it seems quicker delivery than I had any right to expect, but does seem to almost exactly match the "19 weeks" it estimated online at the time of purchase, so worth having a look at that if you are planning an order. The car looks great and drives really well, but I need to get used to the size and read the manual. I also need to have a think about waxing or whatever paint protection I should get, as I wasn't offered it as an option by the online dealer.
  4. I parked next to a Black Edition when picking my kid up today. Looked fantastic, a real head turner. Hope you enjoy it mate! 🙂 I wanted the Black Edition, but they had stopped offering it when I looked to order, so I went for an Adventure in Jan. I was told to expect it in October, but it is now saying it has left the factory, so I'm not sure if it is really on its way much sooner or there has been a mistake. I guess I'll wait and see.

    RAV4 water leak

    I had this on an old Renault Clio and it was a pain to find where the water was actually coming in. If you can get it dried out, you can then get the hose and target an area at a time to see when the water comes in. For example, spray the windscreen, wait for a bit and then check for water. If none, spray the sunroof, etc. Good luck!
