Just hold on there, Mister! I'll have you know that my 1958 VW bug is alive. Sure, it has unaccountable miles on it. Yeah, it has had five engines, two transmissions and too many brake jobs to count, but it is still my Bug.
Horse Power, Fuel Economy, and a Reasonable Price.
Unfortunately, it looks like when my Rav's usable life is over, I will have to go shopping for a different automaker or settle for a Lexus to get power and economy - but alas Not at a reasonable price.
I doubt toyota will stuff another V6 269hp engine in a small CUV with all of the new economy laws manufacturers must abide by. Enjoy it while it lasts
10 years ago or so my wife and I walked into a Toyota dealership completely green to buying a vehicle. Wife wanted a Matrix and myself a Tacoma. Matrix was a little to small for me and the Tacoma a little to big for her. We got the Rav4. I was never a fan of the 4.1 Rav4 appearance nor the 4.2 but they both grew on me and now I'm a big fan! 270,000km later and after realizing it could push me up all the local forest roads I'm a very happy camper!
Only regret is being young and dumb and paying 8% interest over 5 years to pay it off.
In February of this year, I bought a certified 2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited V6 AWD, blizzard pearl color, with only 13k miles. I have to say that I am very satisfied with my purchase, and this vehicle is pretty beastly with the V6 option. I was considering the new redesign model (2013-present), but I really do not like the redesign look. After driving a 1998 sedan for too long to the point of having start up problems, I then chose to buy an SUV due to it's utility for activities and for my family (dog and upcoming baby). My wife also didn't want to drive something too big but I wanted a strong engine for tough jobs. The RAV4 V6 appeared to offer all these, was within our budget, and I hear Toyota is very reliable. I'm loving the car!
2 days ago at around 8 am, I crank my 07 Rav4 and I hear this deep roar coming out of the exhaust pipe (I do not have a custom muffler).
Upon looking underneath the truck, what do I notice? Wholly Mary! My catalytic converter is gone! Cut with a cheap $7 Home Depot saw!
This is a true story...
Hi all, my wife has a 2010 limited with the push start/key fob. This weekend the car oddly didnt sense my presence as I got near it, so I assumed the battery might be dying. Two days later the car wouldn't recognize the fob.
I bought a few spare cr1632 batteries and was more surprised to find...
An odd thing started happening with the wife's 2010 RAV4 LTD which until now has been almost nothing less than perfect. I've done wide-to-narrow searches on the forum, but can't find anything exactly like it.
After a normal drive, I can come home, put it in park, press the ignition button to...
I've always wondered how the RAV4 would do against a Turbo Legacy. I see there's a number of current or former owners of that car on this forum? Seriously wanted to buy one of these when they came out, but then I sat in one in a dealership and it was way too narrow and cramped for my wide...
