Hi Rav4World :)

My name is Montgomery. I am looking into purchasing a 1999 Rav4 Automatic... but I don't know much else about it, as the Craigslist ad doesn't say too much else. I just know the mileage is 172,000, but it's priced at $3,300 and from my research this sounds like a good deal! Sounds like Rav4s can last quite a while if you take care of them.

Any advice for me? Will be looking at the car tomorrow (Happy New Year!) afternoon. He said he's "firm" on the price, but when I looked it up on Kelly Blue Book, the price is listed at $2,085. My question would be- is $3,300 a fair price for this car and these miles?

Thanks so much!

Best to you,
monty

Unless it's in PRISTINE condition that's a very high price. Keep looking. You can likely get a newer RAV4 with lower mileage for the same or less.

If it runs properly $1800 is a realistic offer. $3300 only if you're on a crack pipe.

seems expensive but keep shopping with patience. Never pay more than what Truecar offers. Also, take to mechanic with the seller, otherwise don't buy.

Best of luck
