            I had 2014. I like the look of it. But l like the scowling front end better on my 2018 and it doesn't have those ugly black plastic bumpers. Excellent gas mileage and room. The only issue is sluggish acceleration.

                    Still have our 2008 v6 4wd rav4. Just crossed 200k miles. Had to get the front struts and front passenger side cv fixed. Dramatically improved the handling and back to being very quick and nimble. 260 hp. It rocks!! Can’t get it in v6 anymore I think. That Lexus engine is great.

                          Hi Scotty.

                          which year is the best of the RAV 4 on the market. I mean Quality price.

                          Im living in north of Canada and I am seriously thinking to get a second hand Rav4. Which year yould you recommend me or any other SUV of same category for an harsh winter condition.

                          I have a 2003 Toyota Rav 4. I have 130 thousand miles. I do my own work which is minimal and I love it. I will drive it till it won’t go anymore. Just gotta change the oil often

                            Just traded my 2002 Grand Caravan for a 2017 RAV4 yesterday. I'm so glad to be rid of that Dodge! The RAV4 is a so much better vehicle, there's just no comparison.

                                          I have to say I don’t agree with ya Scotty on the fuel economy. I have an AWD 2013 RAV4 limited and on average 24 mpg combined(and I drive the speed limit). There’s other AWD vehicles with better mpg nowadays, but probably not worth the resales. But, hey it’s been reliable so I save at least on maintenance 😯

There is some rust on the wheel hubs, but my mechanic looked at it and said not to does rain a lot in Seattle. I've done all the normal scheduled maintenance, including a couple brake jobs, transmission flushes and batteries. Haven't had to replace anything expensive. Still has original muffler, radiator, starter, alternator, water all just works. ** 240k on my 2004 tacoma, doesn't even leak anywhere. Had to replace the 04 starter, but basically the same story on that car, even the original clutch! ** 374k on my 1991 Corolla, original engine and transmission. It's a daily driver. 4th gear doesn't work anymore, but we shift right to 5th. The '91 was leaking oil but my mechanic replaced the top and bottom bearing seals on the front of the engine and now it's tight again. He said the rubber was hard as wood after 30 years. Hoping to get it to 500K.

It's tranny was modified from three-on-the-tree to three-on-the-floor (I was told) and I learned, quite haphazardly, how to drive her clutch home. I did "boop" rear end some guy on my virgin journey. -a slight tongue-lashing from him, I remember verbatim, "Learn how to drive a clutch!!" yet realizing nothing was damaged, he let me go. Heart pumping, I realllly had to learn hard and focus how to drive her stick the rest of the way home. Kudo's and oil offerings to my Duster on the Day of the Dead. She was ugly, beat up, faded red paint and dents that looked like a feeble Mad Max extra, yet schooled me the hard way on the art of stick shifting ...What was your first car? Or favorite car? Anyone want to contribute oil offerings in memory? ;) (if it's a Tesla, puleeez, you're too young to comment)..

I had a 1995 convertible Celica I loved for ten years, now have a 2019 RAV4 Hybrid. I'll let you know status of the 8-speed CVT. I feel your tranny trepidation..My guy has a convertible '13 Camaro ZL1. I know I know...please leave that one alone. It's nuts fast, I feel my bra cup grow a size larger just by starting it, let us have our fun ;)
