Hi All,

I ordered a fully loaded Silver Limited V6 w/ Leather about 2 weeks ago (2/5/06). My dealer called me today and said they weren't shipping any V6's with leather yet and it could be 2-3 months. Some of you are much more "in the know" than I am so is this for real or is my dealer just lazy? I'm in the Philadelphia area. Thanks in advance for any insights.

So how much should I pay for a V6 with leather? My dealer is quoting me about the same price. Also saying that the demand is so high and availability so low that I'll have to pay MSRP.

No doubt he has it on the showroom floor, loaded it up w/ just about every dealer option available. And he wants to sell it at full sticker. Sure looks nice though!

what are extra mileage tires?? LOL They are the same tires as any other RAV..
N, these tires are made from the same compound found in the space shuttle tires, exosalibant trimester durobond. I'm surprised you haven't heard of this. :roll:
Hey, if they are willing to gaurantee the tires for 60,000 miles, sign me up! :eek:

Hey Siggy,

What options did you order it with? Did you get the DVD player and 3rd row?

If I go with the V6 RAV, it'll be a Limited but w/o the 3rd row and not the DVD - otherwise I want everything else. I'm curious what they're quoting for prices prior to release.

Since I'm still a few months off, I hope to see them fill the lots and drop the price.

Steve,

I ordered mine like you want, w/o DVD (I have dogs, not kids) and w/o the 3rd row (same comment) :) . Aside from that I loaded it up, Option package C, alarm, remote start, tow package w/hitch mudguards, blah, blah, blah. I'm paying 30K even and that was struggle to get. Hopefully you can get a better deal.

That's exactly the package I was thinking about. Hopefully it will be cheaper by the time I pull the trigger (assuming that's the way my wife and I decide to go).

I thought I read in C&D late last year that the 3rd row seats takes away legroom from the 2nd row. I'd much rather have plenty of room in row 2 than have a 3rd row for the very few times that it would be used. Plus, it sounds like the 3rd row is only for kids anyhow.

Thanks for the info!

Hi all,

Went down to a local SoCal dealer last night to drive a 4x2 V6 they had just gotten in. It was nice (compared to my '96 RAV), but I was a little disappointed - I expected the engine to be a little smoother/quieter than it was. We also have a V6 VW Passat, which is (IMHO) pretty smooth, so maybe I'm expecting too much.

Anyway, I'm actually after a V6 4x4, Limited with Leather and side airbags in Nautical Blue, but the salesguy said he couldn't give me a quote until they get one in that matches what I want. Said Toyota won't let you order an exact list of options anymore.

Does this sound right?. If so, what options do people think will come with the Limited V6 Leather?. I.e I don't want a moonroof or heated seats (wifey does though). Do I have to just suck it up and get these anyway?.

Was thinking I could get what I want for $27-$28K (and thats MSRP), but now I'm not so sure.

What brand are the "Extra Mile Extended Life" tires? Are they the Yokohama Geolandars or something else? No way it could be the Duelers... :p

Gah! The $349 "Vehicle Shield Package" is a total crock... Pure dealership price padding... Probably cost them all of $5 in materials. :evil:

Also love how they slip "Fabric Guard" and "Custom Tape Stripe" into that nebulous $1360 "The Extra Mile Option Package B"... Isn't "Window Tint" already standard on every RAV, even base? Pad pad pad pad pad. That dealer's evil. :twisted:

Can anyone answer on what brand/model the "Extra Mile Extended Life" tires are? From what I understood, the only Original Equipment tires available on the new RAV were the Yokohama Geolandars and Bridgestone Duelers.

These some other animal?
