My name is Steve.
Long time Rav owner - just come over from the "other side" !!!!!
Recently had to scrap my 4.2 D4D due to oil pump failure and subsequent turbo failure.Repair cost made it a un economical repair. Car had 130k on but was fully serviced.
Was gutted as it had had all the usual failures sorted ie. DMF - SVC's - Turbo boost valve - upgraded starter and battery - 5th gear repair.

Anyhow - was planning on getting something different but when I started to look around I couldnt really find anything that measured up to the Rav !!! - however I just didnt
want the diesel again because of the aforementioned issues. The newer shape doesnt do it for me so that was out too. Just picked up an 05 2.0 VVTi - 98K - 1 owner, dealer history and in
minty condition.

Only thing I want to do is fit an aftermarket head unit with bluetooth for phone.

Welcome Steve. Only complaint I've got is the dreadful MPG. 19 to 20 local and 30 on a Motorway run, problem is for me, no Motorways in Cornwall.
RAV4 2.0 VVT-I XTR auto November 2005.

Change of circumstances means i'm doing a lot less miles now - maybe 5/6k per yr so I can live with that. I did balance the mpg though with the potential issues with a diesel.
This will be first petrol car i've owned for 20+ years.
