Look for these essential features in a Used Toyota Rav4.
The outstanding feature of the Toyota Rav4 is Toyota Safety Sense™. However, there are other less obvious things to look for in a used car that can be a sign of neglect or misuse.
Age and Oil Consumption
Sometimes the signs are subtle, sometimes blatant. If you can afford to get a newer Rav4 with low mileage then that's ideal, but if five years or older is your budget, you should check for excess oil consumption. Check under the engine for drips onto the road surface where it's parked, the dipstick, and less obviously, the exhaust pipe. If the exhaust pipe has thick sludgy oil deposits, the vehicle may be burning oil. Burning oil can also be caused by neglect through lack of service, synthetic oil, engine issues or gaskets, worn seals or rings, quick, cheap repairs, or disrespect of the vehicle through misuse.
Subtle Body Checks
Look over the vehicle's body to make sure all the VIN plates match and that there is no rust on any panels. Also, look for slight shifts in the paint colour or rippling of the gloss near joins (another sign of a cheap paint repair job.)
Turn It All On
While it is always important to take the vehicle for a test drive to ensure comfort and suitability for your needs, checking all the electrics is essential. This is imperative in the newer Toyota Rav4 models that have a Hybrid powertrain. To test the electrics, turn the car on and test everything from the stereo to the lights, brake lights, fog lights, and interior lights. If there are any signs of flickering, failure to show life, or the wrong action occurring with the electrics, you may need to check to ensure all the parts are genuine Toyota and fitted correctly as this can impact the vehicle's warranty.
Service and Reported History
Checking the service, ownership, and care history of a used Toyota Rav4 of any vintage is essential to ensure you are getting a high-quality vehicle. Reports confirm that it has not been stolen, involved in a severe accident, tampered with, or that regular services have been neglected. As a result, your Rav4 can be a means to adventure and comfort, getting you where you want to go with optimum safety and reliability.
