1995 Toyota RAV4 J 3S-FE 2.0


No frills MPV


Back door lock wore out causing irritating knocking sounds. Took more than a month to order the parts.

Battery needs to be replaced once a year.

Tyres squealing on 30km/h corners.

Alarm system malfunctioned twice this year.

General Comments:

Not really as fast as I expected but then again, this a 4 wheel drive.

A bit cramped in the front seats.

Expensive to maintain at a Toyota dealership. But all original parts guaranteed.

Full tank of fuel (60 litres) only goes 280 to 300 km.

Camry based engine a little on the rough side.

Transmission is smooth, but very slow to react when overtaking.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
