How Common Is Center Diff Lock?
New to the forums, thanks in advance for any help! I've never been a big fan of automatic transmissions, I much prefer manuals. I recently bought a '97 RAV4 AWD that has the center differential lock button on the dash above the radio. In my search for a good used RAV4 I looked at about 9 of them, only 5 of which were manual and one of those was a 2WD. Of the 4 I looked at with a 5spd, only 2 had the locking diff button. I'm in the PNW of the US, so I'm assuming if that was an option a lot of people here would have got it. Anyway, I've heard some people say that all 4WD RAV4's with a manual have the locking center differential, and then I've heard some people say that they're not the common--anyone know the correct answer? Thanks! NP
