2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #22

Good afternoon! I want to share my impressions about the operation of the Toyota RAV-4 crossover (long base, 170 l / s, automatic transmission). I bought at the Toyota Tyumen Sever car dealership in June 2012, an elongated RAV-4 prestige plus package.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #126

Hi all! So I decided to write a review, how good and informative it will be, you yourself will appreciate it. I myself love to read, especially before changing the car. Short test drives are not able to reveal the full potential of the car, and often the route is laid only in the city, and if it is still at rush hour, then consider that you just sat in the car. I am a lover of the TOYOTA brand, I started with right-handers, and it was they who laid the foundation for the future in me with their reliability, low cost of maintenance and maintainability. At that time I was riding a 2007 Toyota Avensis. and didn't want to change cars. It should be noted the broom is a CLEAR apparatus. But it just so happened that Rafik was sailing into my hands for 12 years with a range of 1400 km, and even at a very appetizing price. This car was always before my eyes, because. it was my neighbor in the cottage and the car stood longer than it was used. I didn’t have to think for a long time, although one thing confused me that there was VARIK. My attitude to CVTs was exactly the same as that of everyone who read a lot about them, but never had a car with him. And of course, like everyone else, I shouted in unison that I would never take one myself. All put in place PRICE. In general, in 2013 I became the owner of TOYOTA RAV-4 '12 with a ridiculous mileage of 1400 km. Lyrics drove away on the merits.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #396

The car is the first in the family. What was needed was a good, high-quality, safe car with all-wheel drive. For obvious reasons, SUVs began to look through. We chose sooo long, I didn’t like Qashqai, Subaru XV, didn’t grow together in terms of price and high cost of maintenance. Suzuki cx4 killed the appearance (no offense to the owners), also about the beetle. They began to pay more attention to Rav 4 and Mazda CX5, a struggle broke out between them, I liked Mazda most of all, cool appearance, excellent interior. What can not be said about Rav. We already intended to buy it, but alas, we arrived at the salon and were told that there was some serious hitch at the factory with wheels or disks, I don’t remember, and the car will be at best in 7-8 months. Saddened, they went to the Toyota salon, since it was in the next door. They noticed a ravine, asked how long to wait, we were told that it would take a maximum of 3-4 weeks to wait for any equipment. Ok, thanks we went home and started a thorough study of the machine inside and out, including a lot of feedback from the Droma. It was decided to take Rav, at the end of July they made an advance payment and at the end of August they already received a clean, white new car.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #170

Only positive (left-hand drive, Japanese assembly, I am the second owner), the battery has already gone for 7 years, there is not much snow in Chita, so I hardly use 4 HP, I haven’t repaired anything even the pads are still factory, I only change the oil once a year. (The driving style is moderate, around the city and to the dacha, before that there was Corolla Spicio, because the road to the dacha after turning off the highway along the dirt road, sometimes broken for about 2 km, needed a car with increased ground clearance, because Corolla if it was loaded sherkala sometimes belly.In winter I use an auto-blanket and cover 3/4 with a muzzle in front.On outdoor recreation, with the rear seats folded down on an air mattress, I freely slept with my wife together in full height (my height is 175) I specially chose a crossorver with V 2, 0 because of the economy. The power of the engine is enough for me. I refuel in order to save 92 gasoline, the engine whispers! In our harsh climate, I really like heated seats. no. I calmly translate the entire country belongings and harvest. Cons Harsh rear suspension and creaking tailgate.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #457

Hello, after reading a lot of all kinds of reviews before buying a RAV-4, I came to the conclusion in absentia that the car is good, and the negative people write about it either spoiled people or envious people, or maybe they didn’t buy RAV and, realizing their mistake, decided to exalt their car.

Hi all. By tradition, I’ll say that I’m writing a review for the first time, and besides, Russian is not my native language, so don’t kick AshiPka too much for the style of writing :). There will be many letters in the Review. Well let's start =)

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #355

Hello people! So I decided to write my review about the ownership of the Dream, as they say in advertising. Maybe it will be possible to share something useful, for example, caring for the paintwork and interior, since I have been doing this professionally for a very long time and many chemists. I tested the lineups on my cars and there were quite a few of them, classic vases, W124 W210 gelding limbers, Corollas of all years and even a Hyundai i30 slipped before buying this RAV4 pro, which I actually want to write.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review #398

After buying this car, 2 thousand kilometers have passed, now you can make an objective review about it. I count on its usefulness for people who, like me before, read the opinions of car owners to make a decision about buying a particular model.
