While a 2000 RAV4 is a fun little SUV you may want to check out the RAV4 4.2. More HP and after Sept 2003 updated with all the modern stuff a twuck would need and better fuel economy than the earlier versions or the later models as well. Also no timing belt on the 4.2's. My 1997 had a timing belt snap once, but no damage to the engine as it was a non-interferance one. whew..


If you do go for a 4.2 I would avoid the auto boxes (2000-2003) as there was some software issue that caused them to screw up pretty bad. Either way insure to check the maintance records as well as the undercarrage to insure there was no off road damage, or rust. Either way..good luck!
