I have owned 3 Ravs, and the T180 is by far the best. The on-board computer gave me 38 miles to the gallon, but the quick maths of petrol purchased against miles completed gave me 44. Bad side...gearbox is notchy, especially 1st to second. But she is very very quiet, lots of power and lots of toys. Pity Toyota in its wisdom bought out the XTR, a sheep in wolf clothing, but just looks like a T180 at first glance. Much better car by far than its Honda rival.
My wife and I test drove the T180 model on the weekend and were impressed with the look,handling and general drive of the car.
All the gadgets you get are impressive like the smart entry and start system and voice activated sat nav but is it more to wrong!!!!
I agree with alot of comments on the price of the car being too expensive for the model ranges although we have decided to buy one. The model we have bought is an ex-demo so has had some extras put into it ie- Style pack, Reverse sensors and upgraded stereo system and we are paying £23k for it so would suggest this for anyone else looking to buy one as it has 7500 miles on the clock and is only 5 months old so we are saving about £5.5k.
The tailgate is a small problem especially if you reverse into a space can you still get it open. Other running costs are maybe the tires as when I asked the question the salesmen told me that it was about £150-200 a tire but told me that they repair them for free but we will see.
All said and done I think this will be a great car for the money we have spent and would recommend one.
Have had this car for 3 months, having been encouraged to buy one by one of my partners who Raves about his Rav and is on his third one. This car is ideal for rural general practice, being a good compromise of road car, having the safety of 4 wheel drive, security , economy and not too showy although my teenagers call it a Chav4. I am getting 38-39 mpg and 42 on long motorway journeys -just as the manual says. I've fitted the bluetooth phone system (superb) and think rear parking sensors are essential as rear view not terrific. I will definitely explore the fix for the rear tail gate. Recommended. Hope the residuals prove as good as What Car predicts.
I purchased my 2.2 D4D XT3 in Feb 2007, during this time i've covered 7k miles in 2 months on company useage. The car has been very good on diesel returning 42mpg over town & hard motorway use, the car is confortable and handles very well for a 4x4 with the power to easily overtake slower vehicles. The interior is well built but lacks a few 'extras' like leather steering wheel/gearleaver & one touch elec windows all round - which i'd expect for a 20k vehicle. My main complaint is the rear door! to only have a 3/4 opening (at best) is very poor ...... but overall very pleased & recommended.
