If my main wishes are implemented in relation to the RAV-4, then Prado will turn out. Therefore, my review will be objective, and not advertising, as it seemed to someone in my story about T-Ipsum (see.

1998 Toyota RAV4 Review #79

Background - The first generation RAV4 (and especially the short one) has always aroused my interest and sympathy. Stylish appearance, serious technical filling, and some "legendary" cars (after all, almost the world's first mass SUV, except for the Niva, of course). And in the opinion of experts who considered it a typical female car, I put MPX since childhood.

1998 Toyota RAV4 Review #481

Hello, dear Dromovtsy, three and a half years have passed since my first review, but it’s like yesterday I’m sitting and thinking how to state everything correctly and in detail, so that new motorists and future owners get as much useful information as possible. The first review was about the 2003 Toyota Corolla Runx, I owned the car for almost three years and it didn’t give me any serious problems, and in general, it was a real Japanese friend. But time goes by and I had to leave, the circumstances, and the only minus for me of this car is its clearance, the presence of a body kit. But then in 2008, still a prosperous year, I read reviews about him and experienced the joy and pleasure of the opportunity to choose a car at an auction, how quickly time flies and now a true friend is already with another owner, or rather the mistress of good luck in her operation !!! let's return to reality in the yard in 2011, banking slavery (mortgage) is planned, parting is inevitable, put the ranx up for sale and sold it after about a month. And then the problems began and the agony of choosing the next car. Since I’m going to drive for a long time, I was very scrupulous about the choice, and the budget was limited, of course, running cars such as Toyota Crown Premium, Karina in 211 bodies were initially considered, the amount of 200-250 tr. a lot of hours spent on the Internet, of course, on my favorite DROM website and nothing, but as usual, I got into an unfortunate time of price growth, outbidding just went crazy and people, looking at the prices, too, all my Wishlist was estimated at 300-350 tr. That's how prices have gone up. A lot of options were screened and so I found her Crown Premium constructor 1997 onwards. one owner in the Russian Federation was in Tomsk and the price was acceptable for me 230 tr. What to do, we went to look, we managed to meet only on Saturday evening, so the owner could, she was on the rooms, agreed verbally with the owner that I would pick her up next weekend , and inspired by luck, we go home, there was enough joy until next Friday, I call to make an appointment, to which the owner replies that he sold the car, but he asked for a deposit, but nowadays you almost don’t trust anyone, I didn’t give a deposit. And here again the choice, everything got tired, the budget was increased again and I began to consider other options for car models, namely a clearance of at least 200 mm, four-wheel drive, a 2-liter engine, this was the root cause of parting with the ranx, the presence of many lakes in our area and the impossibility of getting to them, and the prices for premiums and carinas, so four-wheel drive, as they say, rules. Of the models considered Honda TsRV, HRV, Avansir, Subaru, my old and unfulfilled dream Out, Forester well and Toyota Rav4. I watched a lot of Subaru, but the distance from Krasnoyarsk makes its own adjustments, somewhere I didn’t have time, but everything that I watched was frank rubbish, but here I would like to dwell in more detail, almost all options considered according to the ad and according to the description of the owner, which were in perfect technical condition, actually turned out to be just rubbish. Masters from the Subaru service said that for a long time they had not seen cars in normal, let alone good condition. Okay, let's finish the story of the agony of choice and go directly to the car. Toyota RAV 4 1998 release, automatic, shorty 2 liter four-wheel drive in Russia since 2005, two mistresses, blue color shabby))))))))) There is no rubber, the signaling is the price of pleasure 300 tr. everything worked out and for 4 months on foot they turned into a Frog, which can be said for a short period of operation, a goat, still a short man, but he rides, accelerated at a similar 150 scary, but some even lay down the arrow, for me this is not the main thing, the dynamics of 2 liters after 1.8 ranks is normal, there is practically no difference. Pros: 1. Dynamics level.2. Maneuverability in the city and off-road, a short base allows a lot. 3. Maintainability and cost of spare parts, which is relevant. Well, and cons: consumption of 10 liters, after the purchase I changed all the filters, washed the nozzles first with Vince, and then with ultrasound with the removal of the nozzles from the car, the result is 0) 2. There is not enough space (but for now there are enough of us). .

1998 Toyota RAV4 Review #587

Bought the car spontaneously. We went to the market on Saturday to ask the price, to look. I had in mind Pajero IO 2003, but was not sold, and we moved on. We looked at the SRV 97 years old-300000 rubles. We went for a ride, I almost beat my ass off, my wife did too, this decided the outcome of the skating not in favor of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, although, they say, they are what they are, tough. Let's move on. We looked at Eskudik, 99, but a friend (he repairs aircraft engines) didn’t like something in the work of the engine ... So, considering, we went again to where the IO was - it’s still not sold and no .. Time is already 12 days. Let's move on. In short, I chose Airtrek 2001, all-wheel drive, dviglo not GDI, two liters, left a deposit of 2000 rubles, went to the bank for the loot. I returned an hour and a half later, and then I drive it at the entrance ... And I forget about Airtrek, Pajerio, and the SRV combined. And I don’t go back to ask for a deposit. Drove, sold gave me and my wife a ride. Before that, there was a Civic and a half liter, so after it it's a plane.

I wanted to write a review, but somehow I couldn't get my hands on it. Lately, I've been frustrated that for a long time there were no reviews about the old Rav4s and I decided to fix it.
