What did you pay for the paint job?Hi all just joined my 5 door VX has 218000 mainly motorway miles just had herself a new coat of paint well impressed! Had a 96 version but this 2000 in Millennium silver seems even better...hoping for some winter weather to test her now..Ruby Rav is 18 years young and just came of age! Even the factory fitted alarm still works I know as Iaccidentally set it off when I hosed her down high pressure today 😁 Nice to get to know you all....
I have a 2000 rav4. Not there yet but running strong 181000 all original besides back door got smack in the backSaw someone post this for 4th generation but thought it would be much more interesting for the 1st gen.
Mine is a 98 2-door that has 275K with original engine. I'd like to see what others have logged.
How are you achieving 30-mpg on a RAV4 at 359,000-mi. Share your secrets, help us all. My 1998 RAV4 has improved recently, getting up to 29-mpg mixed City/Hwy.A little late to the conversation but my 98 Rav4 AWD (center diff. lock) 5-Speed, is at 359,000 miles and still going strong. She gets around 30 mpg on the highway.
Well where do i start... I chased around what turned out to be a bad fuel filter for the better part of 3 months. In the many dead ends, I deep cleaned my egr valve and relocated it's vacuum switch. I then de-carbonized my motor pretty good. I eventually figured it was the fuel filter. What kept me from thinking it was the filter is that it would hesitate but then run up in rmp just fine. The old oil pump gasket gave out and it lead me to adding oil constantly unitl I replaced it as well. So i would say that fresh oil, good cleaning of the emissions and intake system, and thanks to the finicky slippy clutch, slow rpm increases would go a long way. It'll start to drop economy after about 70 mph though but that's ok for me here in slow Ol'OregonHow are you achieving 30-mpg on a RAV4 at 359,000-mi. Share your secrets, help us all.
