Consumer Report

So, I'm starting a new logbook with repairs, prices and impressions about the car.

Having urgently sold the Camry, while the Rav was being sold, I still purchased the RAV4 of the fourth generation. Because I have long wanted a crossover, and having driven a Camry, Rav 4 has become a logical continuation. 2.5 AR-FE and 6 U760 automatic transmissions. That is, units from Camry, only on large wheels, with increased ground clearance and all-wheel drive. Yes, what you need! After the Camry, you sit in the Rav "like home." Everything is painfully familiar. The same tidy, the same climate, the same steering wheel, the same multimedia. There are of course some differences, but they are minimal. Landing a little stool, not familiar. The steering wheel reach is still not enough, although the seat adjustments are endless. Someone writes that the seats are more comfortable, as for me - the same thing.

Of the pleasant differences: a more informative b / c, you can set up automatic unlocking / locking of the doors. Red interior in my configuration. Easier to get in/out. The front passenger airbag is disabled to install a child seat. Large mirrors, good LED head light. There is no empty niche between the hood and glass. On the Camry there was constantly accumulating snow and ice. On a equal footing, the plastic lining is made almost flush with the hood - more convenient. Power trunk. Large trunk + unfolds into a flat floor. You can carry a decent load, the Camry is deprived of this joy. Roof rails. Tire pressure sensors.

Of the unpleasant: a light, toy steering wheel, it feels more solid on the Camry. Plus, it's a little thinner. Course stability is noticeably worse (maybe it's the rubber, but the cornering speed has fallen by half). It is clearly visible that when braking into a turn, the weight transfers to the front axle, and the rear axle unloads and goes into drift. It affects the high center of mass and a shorter base. Worse soundproofing. Worse ride. The back seat is a bench. Black color - you can see every scratch and speck of dust. The door feels lighter too.

The overall driving experience at city speeds is comparable to the Camry. The same long steering wheel, about the same information content. Irregularities are transmitted a little stronger, but not by much. At starts, the clutch transfers part of the moment to the rear axle, so the traction control system almost does not interfere. On the Camry, this lamp blinked at almost every start, especially uphill. At speeds, the car feels the side wind more strongly, it requires taxiing a little earlier. Higher clearance, less overhangs - I pass where I was afraid of the Camry. Fuel consumption is about 2 liters more than a Camry. Currently happy with the car because. got what I expected.

Traditionally, the first investments were state duty 2tr, Technical inspection 2tr and OSAGO 8tr. Outcome: 12tr.

Engine oil change

Like most car owners, when purchasing a used car, I smoothly do maintenance. Started with an engine oil change. Oil as always mobile, original filter.

Filter 04152YZZA1 - TOYOTA-LEXUS - 570r

Oil 154315 - Mobil ESP LV 0W-30, 4l - 4tr

Oil 154316 - Mobil ESP LV 0W-30, 1l - 1.7tr

Cork ring - 50 rub.

Replacement in the service station - 1tr

Changing transmission fluids

Slowly came consumables to change the oil in the automatic transmission, razdatka and gearbox. Automatic transmission oil left 8l after changing the oil in the Camry, then I bought a 20l canister. Now I had to buy a couple of liters (4l costs 6tr. 20l-20tr. In general, 10l is enough for a replacement, but it took 12l for the Camry). For automatic transmission I used the original Toyota ATF WS fluid. In the gearbox and razdatka Eurol MTF FE 75w85 GL5, because I think this oil is almost perfect for my conditions, except for the price. I made a replacement in the "Seven" with Andrey. Consumables were purchased from another Andrey at Vsezapchastinorilsk.rf, all spare parts are original, I wrote about the differences here

I took the air filter Mahle (knecht) to Sbermegamerket, there are no complaints about the quality.

Part numbers and prices:

Oil Toyota ATF WS 2l - 3000r

Toyota automatic transmission gasket 3516873010 - 1717r.

Toyota automatic transmission filter 3533073010 - 3887r

Toyota filter ring 9030127015 - 342r

Gearbox oil Eurol 1L. E1100811L - 2859r

Rings for drain / filler plugs 4pcs 1215710010 - 144r for 4pcs.

Replacement work - 6tr.

Air filter LX2992 - 900r, I replaced it myself, there are 2 latches and 2 minutes of time.

A little about the expense and little things

For some reason, the consumption of 18 liters shocked everyone. I explain. I live in Norilsk, and already in November the temperature may drop below -30. And stay that way until March. Or maybe a month to stand -45. Start any car at -30 and see how many liters / hour it consumes, especially while the oxygen tanks are heating up. On a car that is not warmed up, it is at least cold to drive, as a maximum it is a pity for the car. Therefore, before each trip, I warm up the interior, engine and automatic transmission. Trips are mostly short: home-work, home-kindergarten, home-shop, etc. Moreover, if I leave the car for 10-15 minutes, I simply do not turn it off. It's more comfortable for me and the car. If near the house the car can be hidden in a warm garage / parking lot, then at work the car is at auto start at a temperature of -20 degrees. And at -35 it starts every 2.5 hours, while the radiator grilles are closed, and an auto blanket is on the engine. In sum, it turns out that the car heats up more than it moves. The on-board computer logically measures the ratio of liters to kilometers traveled, shocking readers. Consumption is obtained as follows: 18l / 100ki at an average speed of 14km / h. 35l at 5km/h. If you drive a warm car at average city speeds, then the consumption will be 9.2l / 100km at an average speed of 40km / h. But if you choose rav4 2.5 on all-wheel drive, you should not believe in fairy tales about 6L. Yes, if the dynamics of your acceleration is slower than the squirrels running along the side of the road, the speed is even, without overtaking 80-100 km / h, trucks, buses and mountains will not come across on the way. There will be a positive temperature outside and good summer tires. That figure of 6l / 100km can show off on your b / c for a short time. In real conditions, the highway consumption will be 9 liters, city 12-13l. Everyone who drives a gasoline, 180 horsepower, all-wheel drive rav4 with an average consumption of 6 liters is simply lying.

Just reading about this car, I realized that the windows are not automatic, and the keys are not highlighted. I don't use power windows so much that I only learned this from other people's records. In winter it is cold to move with open windows. Yes, and the windows to the rubber bands freeze tightly, you can damage something. It's hot in summer. Climate with air conditioning make the atmosphere in the car as comfortable as possible. You can throw trash out the windows. But we somehow got used to put it in a bag and put it in the trash. In general, I would not classify a trifle like backlighting as minuses. Although it's a shame that Toyota saved on such trifles.

The real disadvantages, in my opinion, include the lack of a rear-view camera washer. Why it was impossible to throw a 1.5m hose from the rear window nozzle to the camera is not clear. After traveling in the rain, you will have to go out and wipe the camera. Or modify the washer.

Also, personally, I don’t like gray plastic like aluminum. Both on rails and bumpers, and in the cabin. It doesn't look like aluminum, it looks cheap. Better to leave it unpainted. To save money from painting, a camera washer was installed.

Winter tires

I already wrote that after the Camry Rav seemed strongly prone to demolitions. But I sinned on rubber, not the first freshness, although almost all the spikes are in place. The beginning of the "special military operation" began to sharply mow down the ruble exchange rate. Without waiting for the reassessment, I went to change shoes, although I planned to postpone it until the fall. Non-standard wheels with 225 / 60R18 tires were installed on the car on Nokian Hakka 7 tires, without pressure sensors. Therefore, the TPMS lamp was an eyesore on the panel. But with the car I got my own wheels with sensors, on summer tires Dunlop Handtrack. I could not find the rubber 235/55/18 that interests me. The closest fit size was 225/60. Yes, and the choice of rubber was not particularly. The choice was: Wiatti, Nordman 7, Henkuk w429, Ekogama ig65.

The choice was made in favor of hencook. The wheels were assembled on native disks, summer tires were postponed. The plans are to assemble a summer kit on regular disks with pressure sensors. Rav even without running tires became much more obedient. Side drift is gone. Henkuk hums noticeably less than Hakka7.

At first, the rubber strongly felt the rut. But it got better with a twist. As the run-in clatter of spikes intensified. The buzzing of the protector did not appear. The rubber is still being rolled in, but the hencook at its cost exceeded my expectations, although my friends advised me more than once.

Rubber + tire fitting cost 49000r.

Also, before the revaluation, spare parts were bought for two MOTs. Oil filter - 2 pcs. Air internal combustion engines - 2 pcs. Cabin -3pcs, 2 in stock one was installed. Oil mobile esp lv 4l (500g left from the last replacement). Toyota oil 0w20 - 5l. That's all I managed to get and prices mercilessly crept up. As of 03/06/22, the price of these spare parts has doubled. Toyota warehouses have disappeared from suppliers. Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst...

It's too early to repair the suspension and replace the disks. The first especially. 48 t.km.

The mobile itself is good. But the percentage of fakes is very high. And now especially. According to the viscosity index, until February 2022, Sergey Smirnov recommended 0w40, but perhaps he really focused more on European engines

Pavel559 2022-06-05 (12:30)

*those. perhaps for Japanese you can lower the index from 40 to 30 (or 20)

Well, why is the discussion about nothing. We are for the truth. Power is in the truth. And there is truth in your words. Castle makes oils for Toyota, but with two caveats. 1 - For Toyota in the Japanese domestic market. Because Castle basically makes a lot of OEM oils for the domestic market. 2 - Castle makes oil for Toyota under contract to ExxonMobil Yugen Kaisha Corporation. Because it is at least expensive to carry ready-mixed oils from Europe to Japan. And they found a mobile who will knead the oil for them right on the sales territory. Mobile doesn’t pay me, unfortunately ... Therefore, I also tried Shell and Castrol oils (I only poured formula f on Fords, which Castrol did then. Smart oil was price / quality). Why is the castle so good that Toyota leaves a million on it and crumbles on the rest of the oils, throwing pistons at passers-by? I looked at the tests of this oil. I looked at the data on the official website (I will attach a screen from their TOP 0w20). Completely ordinary oil like hundreds of others. By the way, the mobile is the same ordinary ordinary oil, which is also expensive. I use a specific mobile oil only because it maintains an acceptable viscosity at -40. For Norilsk, an important factor in winter. In another region, I would pour a cheaper 5w20 or 5w30 hydrocrack. I do not know the differences between Japanese and European internal combustion engines. For example Ford iQJA and Toyota 2arfe are structurally similar. Aluminum block, thin sleeves. Aluminum cylinder head, 2 distributors 16 valves. Faziki inlet / outlet. The same number of supports. Atmospheric Mpi. Even oil approvals API SN/Sl, ACEA A5. I don’t think that Toyota on Ford fotmula f oil will bend and won’t get up. Like Ford on Toyota oil.

Mobile is one of the best oils. How can it have a client and make money on it. What kind of vulgarity?

I beg you where is the vulgarity???.. some kind of snowstorm!!!... how did you live without the Internet and a search engine??? you don’t have to ask a search engine, but open the TOYOTA manufacturer’s CATALOG ... never when they poured MOBILE at the TOYOTA factory ... at the MOBILE account - this is your personal opinion ... MOBILE is a European BRAND and is mainly recommended for European engines. ... I think you know the differences between JAPANESE and EUROPEAN motors ???!!! It seems to me that MOBILE pays extra for advertising!!! SORRY, I’ll end the discussion on this, it’s just not about anything ....... the last thing: MY experience suggests that TOYOTA engines do not depart for MOBILE for 300.000 - 400.000 km, like many of MY clients ... translate THIS into ENGINE HOURS of engine operation and you you will understand everything .. good luck ... take care of TOYOTA and IT will serve you a long LIFE and will delight you with ITS reliability .....

So what is the difference between euro engines and Japanese ones? Shine your knowledge! Ato what that neurosthenic attacks! The problem of education or life disorder? When it seems, you need to be baptized or see a psychiatrist.

SORRY please... SORRY... for the first time in my life I found out that MOBILE makes oil in the base for TOYOTA... what nonsense!!! who told you??? I have been dealing with oils for many years ... oil has always been supplied to the TOYOTA conveyor by "CASTLE" ... what a BONUS ... you must have been told about this by those who sell MOBILE ... ????????????? I congratulate you, THEY fucked you and earned on YOU,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
