New Member - 2019 2.5 VX AWD

hello forum.
Proud owner of new 2019 "old shape" 2.5 VX AWD. Bought from Toyota dealer in Cape Town at large discount. Looking forward to lots of trouble free km's. As the experts down south say, for longevity "buy Japanese, buy petrol", although I must say my BMW 320d bought new in 2000 was an exceptional buy.
Main aim is to assimilate info to understand my purchase better.
Tony

Welcome! By "old shape" do you mean it's a 4th gen made in 2019? The 2019 Rav4 5th gen has the new TNGA platform and a totally different engine and transmission, nothing in common with the 4th gen for the most part. Just curious, what's the 10th character in the VIN?

Hi, yes in South Africa the 5th generation only arrived with local dealers about 27th March. I got a new 4th generation 2.5 AWD VX 6 speed torque converter gearbox which is the top of the range here, probably same as your XLE's.
Huge discount (26%) and 6 year/ 90000 service plan - essentially 6 X 15000 KM or 12 month services.
Price included 8 year extended warranty. No Brainer! Nearly bought a X1 2.0d but at 80% extra would be crazy.
Only done 400km but love it to bits.
Tenth character of Vin a 0.
