Consumer Report

Hello, I never wrote reviews, but with this car I decided - I must!!! Maybe he will warn someone against a rash step))). Car was bought by his wife to replace the old man rx 300, which is not in comparison, but the years take their toll. Rav 4 arrived in very good condition, from one hand, whole, at maximum speed ... this is where the positive aspects end. There is no interior plastic, the carpet is of very low quality, it is wiped, but the leather is decent, there is no sound insulation at all, there is such noise in it .... and everything - the engine, wheels, wind ... They did the Shumka, it became better, an order of magnitude, but still not that. The sound of the radio can not even be called acoustics, these are the cheapest Chinese speakers without magnets, they had to be changed. Now about the suspension, it is more or less knocked down, but it "goats" decently and the 17th wheels are too heavy for it. It’s not pleasant to ride on a not very smooth road, to put it mildly, it jumps. On the track is fine. I’ll say this about the motor, it’s reliable, but weak for this car, hence the horse’s consumption, plus r17 wheels on all-wheel drive, it’s really hard for him, he doesn’t drive at all. Even on their 152 horses. Head light also requires attention, weak. In terms of electric equipment and safety, in principle, there is everything you need, but in a place with this, the CAR IS NOT COMFORTABLE. But it's like TOYOTA. And one more of the shortcomings, I repeat, is CONSUMPTION, city: winter - 19, summer - 15. Unfortunately, this is the case on these machines. There is still a plus, the car does not break down at all, but this is not enough. Now people read about the car before buying, and maybe my somewhat negative, but honest review will help someone. To date, the car has left us safely.

I like the Tucson Hyundai. The prices are adequate. Rav overpay for the brand

So not a theater that got into the tank. I have a total of 400 thousand miles on the last four cars, nothing happened

8 years traveled to Rav-2007. With mileage, consumption has grown, but by 180 thousand kilometers in the city I ate 15 liters on the highway 9-10 maximum. Cars still need to be repaired) Not a comfortable car for tall people, but the Rav of these years is a female car, as demand shows, and we are mostly about 170 cm tall. Clearly, this is not a Lexus, because it is cheaper than a Lexus.

With Russian fuel, a lot of things for 102t.km. may happen. Even the engine can be completely covered, not like an injector.

... yes, for nothing)) I do not compare Rav and Lexus, they cannot be compared))) by any criteria, unfortunately. Different Toyotas have been in my hands ... Japanese, European, American, and not one had such questions, even Kaldina is many times higher in terms of handling and comfort, equal to a specific housekeeper))) in everything except units. But you are right that everything is relative))).

5 points to the author, the review is honest and useful! But! Based on the review, once again I am convinced that there is no better car than Toyota. Reliability is important to me, comfort comes second. You just compare comfort with a Lexus, and if you compare it with viburnum, then everything is not so bad) Thanks for the helpful feedback!

Feed normal 95m and you will have dynamics! But what can you want from a 2L engine of old reliable developments ?! Mileage 230tkm! The flight is great! Ride on Crete 2.0 4vd! Generally after Rafik slag!

I have a ravchik with 300 thousand mileage and, ideally, technically, I didn’t think of breaking anything. Really immortal car, know what to do. But other than that, I agree with the review.

12 13 made me laugh a lot buy yourself a Matiz or change a job

17530746 2021-07-29 (12:16)

Exactly the same car. 2.4 11 years automatic long But 185 km on the highway and faster, I could not disperse even though the pedal was in the floor. And let me remind you about 4000 rpm at this speed ....
