The original owner had the Rav4 6 months and 2nd owner owned the Rav4 from 1998 - 2013. Originally registered as R10 MJR (MJR were owners initials) and after 6 months registered as R388WUY. The Stax comes with all 3 keys and 2 remote control units and the original tool kit, jack and locking wheel nut kit.MOTd by Toyota Dingles in Norwich on 30. August 2016 and it passed with no advisories. The bodywork is generally very good and the paintwork has a nice shine to it. The left side front wing has a couple of paint touch ups and there are minor scratches around the vehicle, but not deep scratches. The left hand side rear bumper does have a kink in it at the top of the corner bumper caused by a car park knock prior to me owning the car. This RAV4 does not have rot around the rear wheel arches or rot on the sills unlike many other examples. The sills and underside of the vehicle is very solid and has been recently wax oiled for winter protection. The original Stax alloy wheels do have some corrosion on them but are presentable. Engine does rattle for a few seconds upon cold start up (most do) but quickly quietens down and is fine thereafter.
Gearbox does not suffer from 5. Gear jumping out and the box is generally very smooth with the exception of third gear which is baulky to engage at times and is better changing 3rd gear at a lower speed. Driven sensibly this is not a problem and I find giving a little pause before completing the change into third gear often works wonders. Brakes are excellent and are stripped, cleaned and lubricated every six months to ensure the pads etc are moving freely. The front discs and brake pads were renewed last year and the rear shoes have plenty of life on them.
Steering is nicely weighted and very smooth and the suspension has no knocks or rattles etc. All 5 tyres have plenty of tread on them.
As can be seen from the pictures the interior trim is excellent. There is one hole in the drivers side carpet caused by a heel of a shoe but the rest of the trim is in remarkable condition for a vehicle that has covered 90,000 miles! Everything electrically works and the air conditioning is cold. The only minor problem is a cassette is stuck in the original radio/cassette player but the radio and radio joystick control all work fine. The luggage area is again in excellent condition, unlike most other examples.
