  1. What do you all do during the winter?

    4.1 General
    I resort to driving my 4Runner :)
  2. Would synthetic oil improve the 3S-FE engine a lot?

    4.1 General
    After a little more reading, I agree with you Fredrick. Great points and great info. Thanks!
  3. Offroad capability compared to 1st gen RAV4?

    4.2 General
    Between the first and second gen RAV4, which is more capable in snow/offroad conditions? The first gen looks more "chunky" and looks to have good wheel clearance in the wheel wells, but those are just the looks. What do you think?

Is the auto-locking center diff on the auto transmission model as good as the manual locking center diff? I have always...
  7. Do all AWD RAV4s have a center diff lock?

    4.1 General
    I am looking to buy a new 4WD vehicle and I plan to do some snow driving in the future. I want more than an exclusively-AWD system (AWD, as I understand it, being open center diff, open front diff, open rear diff). I have seen the center diff lock button on the dash of some RAV4s. Do they...
