Good day !!

I want to write to everyone about my RAV 4. Bought in 2009, Mineralnye Vody. Maximum equipment. Engine from Camry, 2.4 175 hp, priced at 1,575,000. Very cool car, the leader (unconditional) in its class. The first sores began to feel somewhere 2 years ago, when the car was 5 years old. (And as we know Toyota is the leader in reliability).

So, let's begin .

1 year of operation :

At that time, this car was a luxury for me: leather interior, superb engine sound !!!! (By the way, I have an extended version). Off-road rides great, full-size spare tire. Everyone envied me. (Before that, there was a rafik of 2005, silver, I was also satisfied)

Came to the first T.O. :(( I was completely ... dissatisfied with the price !! 18,000 for an oil change and a couple more works ??! No, I went for another MOT and spat, I started doing everything myself.

(I also considered the Outlander XL, but I didn’t like the appearance. Now I want to sell the rafik and buy the Outlander 2016)

2-4 years of operation:

The most such years when I tested the car O-GO-GO how !!

Off-road, dirt - weekends. Asphalt - weekdays.

I really liked the all-wheel drive transmission with the ability to block the differential and automatic (4-speed) with gears 3.2, L !! Straight combat arsenal for a crossover. But of course this is not a real SUV (especially the new Rafik), but still enough cross-country ability. The engine is very vigorous! I even overtake Mercedes on the highway !! The maximum developed 170 km / h, but this is not the limit !! The car is maneuverable, but there are rolls. In general with the engine and dynamics of 5-.

5-7 years of operation: (the most shoals)

Hello average age for a car!!

We turned 5 years old and climbed !! :))

First joint:

The engine began to eat and eat, as if a land cruiser !! In the period from 1 to 4 years, on average, somewhere around 11 liters, and now it can reach up to 14 !!

The second cant (I knew about it from the moment of purchase, my friends said):

The rear left wheel began to creak (native cant ... Apparently the assembly). On the road, it's so annoying!! To death ! The problem seems to have been fixed on the new machines.

And the third cant, the funniest one!! This is straight up a story!!

I mean, I’m driving from the store and then I see some kind of man signaling to me :)) It turns out that the right rear wheel has burst. I scratched the whole wheel!! Not a single nail!! Apparently age has taken its toll... :)

OK it's all over Now ! Goodbye everyone!


Mileage: 33561 mi. (54000 km.)

Fuel consumption on the highway:

  • 20 miles per gallon (US)
  • 24 miles per gallon (UK)
  • 12.9 l/100km
