From the beginning about myself. I live, one might say, in the South of Ukraine (Mariupol). The weather makes us happy here, snow in winter, frosts (up to -25), spring, autumn - mud, heat in summer. Dogrogs are in places, in places they are not. I've been running it since 2004. I took it from my hands with a mileage of 30,000 (real mileage). Drove 70,000. I like the car, simpotnaya from the outside, inside, comfortable, practical.
Sufficient size salon, it fit 9 people. It’s very comfortable in front, it’s better to sit in the back with three of us, because if you make a good turn, you fly across the width of the cabin from door to door, or hold on to the handles with both hands. The trunk is large enough for a trip to the resort enough.
The rear seats are very easy to remove. There was a case of transporting things from one apartment to another, removed the rear seats and fit a refrigerator (large). There is a hatch. With it, he transported pipes 4m long. Fine. Disadvantages: plastic is scratched, in rain and snow the back door and glass are very dirty. All svlonny plastic creaks, though not very much. Strongly creak rear seats and tailgate. In the back door, you can remove and bend the piece of iron that fixes the door, but this must be done regularly, but nothing can be done about the seats (you can only remove them on ...). The cloth seats get very dirty.
Engine - Growls. In the city and on the highway enough, not inferior to cars. More than once in a race from a traffic light, both Mazda6 and BMW 730 (E32) did ... I only change what I need, at a branded service station. I am not happy with the fuel consumption! In the city in the summer (not exceeding 3000 rpm), the consumption is 15-18 l100 km. , in winter 20 or more (with heating). On the highway 90 mph - stable - 12-13. With active driving 20-25 liters .. The masters at the service station cannot determine anything. They checked everything that was possible - And the fuel pressure, and the candles, and the valves, and the electronics, and the catalyst, ..., no one can say anything specifically. I blame the catalyst. We must change. It is to change, it is impossible to knock them out, Chrck eng will burn. because the Euro 4 system is worth it. It's expensive. No more complaints about the engine.
Automatic transmission. Like. Not very thoughtful. No problem.
Suspension. Pretty energetic. Jumped. Turns can be a lot of fun. Frustrating frequent replacement of front stabilizer bushings. Twice I changed the rear nazhnie levers with silent sides. They come together. ($100 piece).
Rubber - Wide - 23565 R16. Only 4 wheels come out a little expensive $ 800-1000.
Four-wheel drive. Good thing for the city! Snow, ice, sand - no problem. Only now there is a lack of ponizhayki and locks. More than once I got stuck in the field, off-road - on a diagonal hanging, sat on my belly, buried in the sand.
In general, like the car. Despite everything, I do not think to sell.
Fuel consumption on the highway:
Category: 2002 Toyota RAV4 Reviews
Chota consumption and really great
please help me, I have a RAF 4 Europe 4W bought 2 years ago, it starts up badly, the revs start to rise first, then abruptly start to fall in places, it’s stalling, please help me, tell me what to do
such a great car.
put the standard tires and consumption will not be more than 15.
check oxygen sensor
If the car was brought from Japan, then this is a Chinese assembly. The Japanese moved the entire left-handed assembly to China, and from there they already carry it to themselves.
the engine costs not 3S but 1AZ, it is one-time, and the consumption can be large due to the lambda (if it has a little characteristic, it will eat buckets and the check will not light up) and rubber. I liked the review in general and the pictures are what you need! good luck on the roads!
Yes ... consumption, divergence ... I looked at the pictures on what kind of sand you ride. Stuck? Weird. Near Novaya Kakhovka, I made ruts with sharp turns (between trees) on the sand in a pine forest along the mounds and on loose sand ... And I didn’t get stuck. Looks like the second generation has become weaker in cross-country ability (I have the 1st, five-door, 165 HP automatic transmission). Consumption on the highway 110-120 km / h. the average for 4-5 thousand was 9.5 per hundred.
judging by the review, the author presses the pedal to the floor at traffic lights and jumps on springboards so it’s clear about the bushings that you often change them and the same thing about gas consumption try not to spin the engine
