Hey guys my name is Mantaqaa i'm from Buffalo NY and im currently 17, turning 18 this weekend. I haven't even gotten my license yet (will soon) but my dad did promise me he'd give me his old rav4 2006 for my birthday and I couldnt be more stoked. The car itself is somewhat beaten down used as a cab for a while at around 140k miles, but I can't wait to start using it. Aesthetically its doing pretty good at its exterior but the interior could use some work as the seats are stained and dashboard very basic. I'm planning on going all out with this car, i wanna keep it at good health while making it prettier too. I'm a noob at all this car stuff but i've had a passion for cars for a long time now, usually i'd express my passion for it through video games but now i can start the real deal. Its a 4wd 2006 rav4 and i can't tell if its a base, le, xe or something else, usually cars have something on the back for something like this but this didnt so im assuming its base, but then i tried putting my vin into a decoder and it states its trim level is a Base I4 4WD, and body style is a sport utility, can someone please confirm this with me? But to wrap things up, I'm crazy excited to start my journey with this car and super excited to join this forum as it seems like its spurring with life with passionate rav4 owners. If someone could suggest possible upgrades please let me know, this cars a clean slate right now and i can't wait to begin. Also, this is the first forum im taking part ever so if im somehow doing something wrong please let me know.
