1997 2-door Standard Rav 4. $1500 OBO
debbie82078 @
I purchased the car in 2002 from Precision Toyota (now Toyota of Tampa Bay). I was the second owner. She has mostly had highway miles and has been driven across the US and Canada. Her last long distance trip was in 2013 up to NC Mountains and she had no issues with that trip.

1. Back hatch door needs to be replaced from accident - has been driven 2 years just using tape on back window.
2. Has original clutch that has NEVER had any work on it and now needs works. Clutch is extremely spongy and once the car is heated up it will NOT go into gear (cold it will shift still).
3. Timing belt was replaced at 312,000 however it is squealing - most likely a bushing.
4. Hood needs paint job

NEW(er) items:
Radiator has less than 100 miles on it.
Alternator, front wheel bearings, battery, tires, and a number of other items replaced in past 1.5 years. Vehicle work details can be provided - Until about 310,000 miles almost all work was done at either Toyota of Tampa Bay on Fletcher in Tampa, at Firestone Complete Auto Care (N. Dale Mabry Tampa), or Firestone on McMullen - after that point a lot of work started to be done at Sandy's Auto Care off Herculues - details provided as requested.

Before having the clutch/timing belt issue she averaged 24-28 mpg which is above what was expected.

She has a single cd player and roof rack. Manual windows and locks.
