Download Free Toyota RAV4 CV 3-door manual.pdf It’s ten years since the first RAV4 appeared on the scene. Combining car like performance and dynamics with off road capability the cheeky looking Toyota became an instant hit. A new market emerged and compact SUV’s were here to stay. In 2000 an all new RAV4 arrived to carry on the original’s success. Since its launch in 1994 more than 1.6 million have been sold and today against increased competition it is still one of the best sellers in its category. Now fitted with a more powerful 2.4 litre – 120kW engine (up 10kW) the range comprises four models starting with the CV 3door and 5door priced at $28,390 and $31,290, moving up to the 3door and 5door Cruiser at $33,490 and $36,490. Add $2,000 for automatic transmission and $240 for metallic paint. Standard equipment on the CV 3door tested includes air-conditioning, cruise control, power steering, power windows, single stack –four speaker CD player plus a body colour spare wheel cover. Dual airbags are standard fitment for the CV but ABS brakes are not available. For those you will have to step up to the Cruiser model which also has an optional $2,700 Safety Pack consisting of Brake Assist, traction control, VSC (vehicle stability control) plus side and curtain airbags.

With its heavily sculpted lines and short overhangs the current RAV4 builds on the original’s distinctive style. Inside the dashboard is more reminiscent of a sports car than a 4wd. A deep binnacle houses the instruments while the audio and climate controls are mounted within easy reach in the wide centre dash panel. For the driver and front passenger high mounted sports style seats give an excellent view of the road ahead. All round vision is good but reversing is difficult, the view blocked by the rear seat head restraints and door mounted spare wheel. Even at its lowest setting the short cushion feels angled towards the floor, reducing any thigh support. Increasing the driver’s seat height doesn’t improve things as the seat base pivots from the front. While comfort is good the seats lack any substantial lateral support . On the plus side, leg and head room are excellent and the tilt steering wheel adjusts through a reasonable range. With only room for two in the back there is enough space to make most people happy but once again the cushion is short and the seats are mounted between the wheelarches resulting in an offset seating position. Once you’ve put your friends in the back the front seats don’t return to their original position, which is a nuisance.
