For the life of me, I cannot recall how I stumbled across this site. Very glad I did though, it seems that you lot have it all figured out. :)

So what have I got? A Toyota RAV4, obviously. 2 door, manual, 4WD version in metallic blue. Stock standard, with 105,000km's on the clock, that's 66,000 miles or so.

The only issue I have is how it is to be classified on this site. See, it was bought in October 2000, yet you guys here would call it the 2001-2005 model. I don't know if the US was a couple of months behind South Africa in releasing the new model, but anyway... A 2001 model from the year 2000. They all look the same, but I'll have a pic of my baby soon enough. :)

If it's the older style (model year 1994-2000) it is a 4.1 Rav, if it is the newer style (model year 2001-2005) is is a 4.2 Rav. Mine is a 2001 model year but was produced near the end of 2000.

Oh, definitely a 4.2. So I'll call it a 2001 model then - less confusion. Thanks, Jeff.

If you bought it in October 2000, it is a 2001 model. The deal being that they release the next model year's cars in September. Best time to buy a new car, go buy the older model for a little less.

Nice to see you on the forums, from one semi-newb to another.
