1997 Toyota RAV4 Review #745

Mother Siberia and its roads, this already says a lot. Financial opportunities and, at the same time, an active lifestyle turned my attention to relatively inexpensive Japanese-made SUVs RAV4, CR-V, Suzuki-Escudo. I settled on the purchase of a RAV4 car purposefully, taking into account the study of the characteristics of classmates Honda CR-V, Suzuki - Escudo. I didn’t even consider the options of European automakers, and there are no analogues to the above cars, in the price range and technical condition (only used cars of 5 years of age without mileage in the CIS are taken into account).

I'm from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, where, mind you, the roads are crap. I only had Toyotas, very satisfied. I drove a Corolla, a Truena, a Sprinter and for four years I have had a RAVA 4 - three doors. I can only say the best about Corolla 93 4 VD, such a foolproof car, I drove it for 3.5 years - I didn’t repair anything, it’s just super.

Hi all. I read several reviews about Ravchiki, it seems that this is the worst car. If you think so, you look at what kind of car you buy, what you need it for. Yes, in quite a few places, but his interior is poor, but a little explosive, the suspension is harsh (but for me this is not considered discomfort). Otherwise, this car is just sweet! This car is for young people! I have been wanting to buy this car for several years, finally I bought Ravchik five months ago. My joy and only positive feedback knew no bounds, the car fully met my expectations, even too much.

1997 Toyota RAV4 Review #592

I will not write about the painful choice of cars when buying. I bought it in Sochi, drove it to Yoshka, tried it on a ride - I liked it. What you need for one! And my friend didn't complain. Not zhYp and not a sports car, neither the locks you are used to for zhYp, nor the space in the cabin, nor the "imposing" steering wheel. Acceleration? Well, maybe a C grade, the rear interior is frankly cramped, there is no trunk. But what are the pros and cons of all this? I don’t carry potatoes, I don’t climb up to my neck in a swamp, I don’t participate in a rally, so all of the above can be considered a plus. As it turned out, there are many more pluses. The biggest positive is that Rafik is not sorry! To drive into a snowdrift is not a question, on a curb is not a problem! Do you know such supermarkets with automatic doors? so drunk to the cash registers by car for cigarettes! I liked the nature of the machine. dashed off a little more than 100 thousand, a total of 235 thousand kilometers on the odometer. Riding style - gas pedal either ON or OFF. I put the arrow at 180 km / h: goat after 140, the hum of the engine in the cabin from 120, and from 120 sluggish, barely noticeable acceleration. Stopudov machine for the city! Sidewalks, curbs, speed bumps, snowdrifts - all mine! And he is IRON, nothing happens to him! The stuffing box on the rail ran, so the year went oil sometimes pouring, even the gur did not die. There is only one problem with the suspension - stabilizer bushings, replacement every six months. The front right spring burst - changed both. The timing belt burst, a tow truck, a station, a replacement. Front wheel bearing hummed - replace. Rear ABS sensor replacement. I plugged in a sub, a 4-channel amp, an Alpine head and a front 16` Alpine component, an overrunning camera, a DVD monitor and a skin for myself. The battery is new. I think not too much investment for 2 years. Well, I also made a sticker under the toner and put the hitch. Now I'm dragging a hydrik or a boat "Mirage" to the Volga. About the performance of Rafael as a zhYpa, I’ll say that in the sand, like at home, but only on an unloaded car! 2-3 passengers and he digs the sand - dug, dropped off, went again. Clay and dirt - not a question, only drags him - pipets! I drove him into the arable land in the fall, under the first snow (he managed himself and figured out where to go for the tractor), although the tires were already winter - 200 meters he raked clods of dirty earth from under the wheels and we were already on the asphalt! In winter, of course, you have to be more careful, once I was thrown into a turn, there was no one so good in the oncoming lane. Yeah, and in the winter I ride my friends out of the snowdrifts and sometimes I light a cigarette in the morning. I wanted to sell, now I will go, maybe I will add something soon.

1997 Toyota RAV4 Review #384

Hello everyone who reads this review. I will share my impressions of owning this car. Directions for more than a year, I can say with confidence that the car has never failed. Very reliable and unpretentious. And there were some very bad situations. And she spent the night with me at -40 on the street for several days in a row, and I conquered the mountains on it and passed the fords and that surprisingly small rivers passed. It was even somehow stuck in the water, the front wheels went into the pit, neither here nor there, I open the door - water poured into the cabin, I was a little confused, but quickly realized - I turned off the ignition, closed all the windows and ran to the village behind the tractor. While I was running, I thought if only the water would not get into the engine, otherwise n ... hell, because. sunk very deep. But everything ended well, after they were safely pulled out in tow, Ravchik spat out water from all holes, the water of the glass dried up and, as if nothing had happened, went on. True, pebbles still got into the space behind the brake discs - the rattle was wild and the signal worked continuously. I was driving around the village, people looked around and thought what a deer was dragging and honking non-stop and the rattle was so terrible. ahaha:)))))) In a couple of minutes I removed the wheel, poked around with a screwdriver, all the pebbles came out. I had to do this with the signal - by typing I determined the fuse responsible for it, pulled it out - a pleasant silence ... In general, summing up, I sold my faithful horse because time flows, everything changes and a fresh car is needed. I wish everyone who has mastered to the end strong tires and a reliable spark. Good luck on the roads! And take care of your nerves while driving!)))

People! Fuck tibidoh tibidoh! Rav 4 - the thing is just super. How many cruisers with Pajero doused with exhaust on it can not be counted! The 3sFE engine is 135 horses and the weight is childish. You pour 98 and you don't know the problems. Peregazovka and you're flying, and the cruiser - in the ass!!! Of course, you can’t chase with a skyline, but in winter there are no problems in return (the wheels are 17). Cruisers with padjiks "sit", and he (Rav-4) flies himself, knows no problems. The suspension is a bit weak, but excuse me, it’s still a SUV. Although I flew into such buesraki - and nothing. Once every 3 years changed the gum and no buzzing. As for the women's car, you are in vain - the thing is very serious. In a word, the Japanese turned out to be a very successful machine. Recommend to all young people
