#1016 of 2127 OT--What is Toyota's problem?
Sep 10, 2003 (1:04 pm)
The 2003 model is irrelevant crap now, nobody wants them, so give up extending sales events so your web lackies don't have to update the site. Once you announce the prices, that should be it right there! Not a second later. It's been a whole week since you announced prices for the 2004 RAV4, so like I said before the 2003 (and prices) is (are) irrelevant now.
I know I've posted my displeasure about Toyota's US website before, but it has now pushed me beyond my limits.
Please email Toyota (toyota_carestoyota.com) and let them know your displeasure involving their glacial website updates!

The National Dealer Meeting was held earlier this week and many, many Toyota corporate people were there. That could be a reason why the website wasn't updated as soon as you would have liked.
Sorry but the 03 isn't "irrelevant crap now" they are still on many dealers lots and customers still want them and the incentives that are available on the 2003's. Remember, the small percentage of the population that visit here are not reflective of the buying public as a whole.
#1019 of 2127 Can't find where the air filter is

Could anyone point me where the hell air filter is located in Rav 4. Just don't say itís under the hood. Thanks

Big black box on top of the engine that has the decal "2.0 liter vvti". Has a big black intake hose attached. Intake is right behind the left headlight. Takes 5 minutes to change the air filter. This is for 2001 - current.

Man. My wife keeps telling me that I am blind and now I see it's true. I can't believe I couldn't find it. Thanks

You guys are touchy in here this week - gas prices got y'all down or is it the chill in the air?
Relax and enjoy your ride a bit more! You could be stuck in a 60's chromevinylmobile you know.

Makes the imminent purchase of the 2004 Forester XS a little less certain, but still my biggest beef with the RAV4 is that no rear bumper/tire shell in the back. I really hoped they might get away from that design (as would Honda with the CRV).
Still, this is a good looking vehicle that makes me pause... uh, 6.8% financing, Toyota Canada? Yeah, right!
#1025 of 2127 the no rear bumper problem
Sep 13, 2003 (6:49 am)
As I'm driving everyday I keep checking out this problem but find it a bit confusing. It looks to me as though they do have a bumper but that the tire hangs down and covers part of it.
What's it like to park a car like this with that extra tire sticking out? And isn't the CRV the same, really? Aren't you going to end up hitting the tire rather than the bumper if you just happen to "tap" another car while parallel parking?
