Looks good, when on site, check for the Check Engine Light to come on (shortly) when turning the ignition key.
Airco, aftermarket stereo, cruise control, looks clean and well maintained.
I think you do a good buy with this one which will last you at least 150 - 200K miles if you keep maintaining it well, plus they keep a good price over time.
Will be a great ride to use with children. Outside looks fairly plain, but i cannot detect rust on the pictures (RAV4 don't rust very easily on the outside), which is good.
Ask about the timing belt if it's done (should be done at 100K miles). Most mechanics write down the miles when it was replaced near the timing belt area, so taking a look under the hood might help you find out too. Water pump should have been done along with it.
Driving a BMW318i with LPG at the moment. Had a 2.0 RAV4.1 1997 3drs 4WD euro model w/ABS dual sunroof blue two tone previously.
