1999 Toyota RAV4 Review #508

Is there a car more reliable than RAV4? Maybe there is. :) There are more dynamic, and more powerful, and more comfortable, but I like RAV4 in the first body. Two reasons: the first is reliability (whoever disagrees, let him go to the bathroom and hit the wall there so as not to splatter the wallpaper), the second is permanent four-wheel drive and the accompanying goodies. I do not like all these self-locking differentials, automatically connected drives and all sorts of other dubious stray. It's probably good and practical, but I'm buying a car FOR MYSELF. And one that I like. And I like the RAV4 in the first body. :) I live in Toronto, where it gets very snowy in winter and four-wheel drive comes in handy. Of course, they clean the streets and do it in a timely manner, but it happens that they don’t have time, and even then, to get to work, you need four driving wheels and good tires. By the way, this year I tried the winter snowtrakker and I must say that I have a purely positive opinion about this rubber. There are cons: very noisy and serious rolling resistance, but does it make sense to drive 140 in the winter in the city? At least not on RAV :). Although I do not complain about the dynamics. :) In general, I must say that I have this third car in Canada. Third RAV4. :) All, of course, in the first body. The previous two cars died in accidents. :( The first one was on a winter road, when I collided head-on with an Impala that flew out of the oncoming lane (those in the enemy car were taken away by an ambulance, and I got a hefty bump on my forehead when I tried to get out of a broken car). And the second in the summer, on a dry road and with excellent visibility - hugged a tree. Don't drink while driving! :( Well, you can add that the rubber let it down a little, but still the main reason is alcohol. The blow was such that the tree cracked along the trunk, and the engine simply split in half. At the same time - attention! - the interior was almost not deformed. I was extremely surprised. Moreover, I practically didn’t suffer, and I don’t consider a dislocated shoulder an injury. Well, so. I like the trouble-free operation of this little car. Especially when you consider that local mechanics love to bend absolutely unthinkable prices... For example, replacing a timing belt and pump in a non-Toyota garage costs about $ 600. I remember that in Russia I changed the belt on Caldina for 50. True, 600 is together with spare parts, but still a little expensive. There was nothing more to be done. No, though, I forgot. On the current RAV, the second oxygen sensor had to be replaced - the wires came off. $50 - universal. I would have traveled like that, but gasoline consumption has grown to indecent values ​​- more than 15 in the urban cycle! After replacing everything was back to normal. What else to add? All owners of RAVs are well aware of their shortcomings and there is no point in listing them again. However, I would call it features. RAV4 is a very peculiar car. Yes, noisy, yes, it does not jump to a hundred in 5 seconds and cannot accelerate more than 180, but if you need a car to quickly move around the city in any weather and on any roads, this is the RAV4.

2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #69

Hi everyone. I own Toyota RAV4 II 2002, blue, European for more than 10 years, mileage is more than 230 thousand, so I have something to say. --- they don't make them like that anymore. Yes, there were problems with the ECU (there were few official sales in Russia) Toyota placed an order for them in Taiwan from Denso, and local cross-eyes used acid-shit solder when desoldering and over time the soldering dried out and the contact disappeared AND EVERYTHING !!!!!! !! There are no more pains. About the drive --- small Prado 120th, in winter on the track it is "iron on asphalt", but of course with a choice of good winter studs. Why He: I live in Tomsk, Siberia, 9 - 8 months winter conditions or close to them, therefore 4 HP and only an honest permanent drive, and not everything else because of saving a couple of liters. I wanted the 120th, but to carry one Zh., and even in the city, is not economical and you can’t be smart with its dimensions. For the service staff: changing oil, filters no later than 10 thousand mileage, the first replacement in the automatic transmission was carried out by me at 90 thousand and it was light and without the smell of "burnt garlic" - that is, it was still working with might and main, the next ones also every 80 thousand. Although Toyota fills times and according to the "Talmud" for the entire period of operation, and a locksmith in various "farms" claims 40-60 thousand km. I regularly check the probe, how the shift starts to get dark, then everyone decides for himself. Suspension: reliable, "eggs" consumption even in the city, blurted out --- for replacement, first replacement of the front struts with a little over 100 for Kayaba, rear about 140 or so, brake discs are still native, but machined at 180 thousand, replaced right rear hub also at this time. I changed the brake pads a couple of times for all the time for some kind of Japanese ... moto, I don’t remember. A couple of years ago, the glass of the left headlight began to become cloudy. Engine: ............. pah pah pah. I cleaned the roller of the idle speed sensor with electric sound and the throttle valve by 150. ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The rest is just mini-tuning: replacing the head unit with a TV and navigation, installing a flat subwoofer under your seat, rear-view cameras, covers. The farthest trip to the Crimea. Changed the oil, filter, fluid and go with his wife. And even the thought of no "back" does not arise that you can not get to point B. Thanks to everyone who read it, good luck with choosing a car and less problems with its attendants, I wish you all good health in our time.

1995 Toyota RAV4 Review #729

To be honest, I wanted to buy myself a Toyota Supra in the 70th or 80th body (I really liked it), but the situation developed and I bought a RAVchik (I call it that). I'm pretty young, I'm 20 and all my friends drove sports cars and I drove an SUV. I used to be jealous of them, but now I'm proud of my car. In the summer, if we are going to go to nature, then we will definitely eat in my car, since the RAV copes very well with off-road and holds the road well. The high seating position allows you to drive where an ordinary foreign car (low) simply cannot pass. I also want to note the advantage of all-wheel drive - in winter, any hill can do it. And very good for the city. The car is tall and can be seen very far (convenient in traffic jams).
