Hello - Newbie Member - Any Help Appreciated

PostPosted by Dottyj » Mon Feb 20, 2017 7:36 am

Just wanted to say hello all.

I have a 2005 Rav 4, 2.0 D-4D XT-R 3dr in Black, it's done just over 70,000 miles. Love it and want to keep it but it's starting to cost. Just had the clutch and flywheel replaced and now the gears are on the way out. Something 'dodge' going on with steering - looses power when start to drive but only when it's been raining???

Would be great to find a garage that knew what they were doing with old Rav4's.

Any suggestion or help greatly appreciated - I live in East Midlands.

Thanks Jace :s_howdy

Will get in touch with them - but they are a bit far for me to travel as I'm in Leicester - they may know someone closer.

Greetings... .... :) :) :( ..........

As the guys have said DNA at Worcester are the fellas to get in touch with. Top mechanics who as Jase says are fully Toyota trained and with a wealth of experience... Tell them Chuck reccomended them to you. Or Jase of course !!
