Great collective knowledge here.

I was shopping for a 2nd car, a family shared car to eventually hand down to a new driver. Being a freakish tall sort, that rules out a lot of vehicles, I've haunted car lots and private sales saying "let me sit behind the wheel and see if it fits".

Found a person selling a 96 4x4, thought I'd at least check it out.

What a pleasant surprise that the seat goes back as far as it does, and the roof has space between it and my head, didn't have to slouch in a semi reclined seat.

Very cool car, AWD feels very stable, at 120K, it's held together well and does not feel all loose and shaky. Certainly won't get a case of sudden mass acceleration :wink: I'd let a teenaged daughter drive it.

So it's in the driveway now. Going to have some basic fixes done and try some dress up touches I see in the forums.

I've got to adjust to the 'Purple Storm' paint though.

Thougt I would show a few pics

How can it look tough when it's so purple?


Here we can see the paint transition. This RAV was rearended when it was brand new.


Inside. The floor mat has a hole in it. the carpet, upholstery and instrument panel all look very good for 121K & 10 years of use.
