#944 of 2127 2003 RAV4

totalnet - Thanks for your info earlier. I think I am closer to buy one. But I do have a question. Maybe you and someone can help me.
Toyota is offering 1.9% APR for 36 months for the RAV4 and most Toyota vehicles, plus $300 manufacturer to dealer incentive (may be combined with special APR offer). One dealer offers $300 over invoice for any RAV4. Is this a good deal? I quoted earlier from other dealer for $21599 plus 198 doc. fee for 4WD, Auto, "L" package, ABS, and rear spoiler. Am I also taking an advantage of this $300?

not sure which state you are in, here
in CA you can get it below invoice as i did
(refer to my earlier post).
wondering what is your invoice price?

I think my price is close to yours. I am also looking for the same car with the same equipments: 4WD, Auto, "L" package, ABS, sunroof and rear spoiler. But I got this quote properly two months ago.
What seems to be a problem with the windshield noise? People said this is no more than a trip to service department to tighten some screws. But Toyota knows about it and nothing has been done about it.
#947 of 2127 Is this price ok? Please advice.

I live in Belleville NJ. Need to buy a new car. Route 22 Toyota, a local dealer here gave me this response when I inquired about RAV4.
"On the 4x4 Limited, with an MSRP of $24,700 You can buy the vehicle
for $22,550. This vehicle does have the ABS brakes, Sunroof, Alloy
Wheels, Keyless Entry, Wide Mud Guards, Roof Rack, "L" Package, and Daytime
Is it a fair price?

Hey! I am also looking for the exact same car with equipments and quoted for $22990 plus $100 doc. fee and $100 reg. & title. But they also mentioned the factory alarm system in addition to the Keyless entry. I don't know if they are talking about the Anti-Theft system or the VIP R3200 system. Anyone knows the different? Anyway, your price is better than mine. Go for it.
Beside this dealer, another dealer quoted $300 over invoice for any RAV4 in stock.

Hi! I want to know if anyone has the all-weather rubber mats and cargo liner from Toyota. Are they as good as the WeatherTech rubber mats?

shuts down the ignition if it does not detect the car's correct key, so that the car cannot be driven.
If you get the Toyota 3200 alarm system, it adds a glass breakage sensor and an audible alarm if the car is broken into or a start-up is attempted without first disabling the alarm (in addition to ignition AND fuel pump kills).

Yes. It is the VIP R3200 Plus Security System (code = V5). It must be the type you just expalined. It looks like the horn will goes off and the headlights will flash. It is good thing they have it on the car. And all for $22990.
#952 of 2127 H E L P ---Rav Question
May 22, 2003 (5:24 am)
We own a '96 Rav and the indicator light on the shifter between the two front seats (the one that indicates PARK, REVERSE etc.) has blown out. A Toyota mechanic (w/out seeing the car) estimates replacing the bulb at $80. Personally I'd let it go but the wife thinks differently. Is this something I can tackle myself? Is it really that involved?

Note that anyone appears to hang in this forum...everyone must be buying CRVs!!!
A local mechanic replaced the bulb in under 10 minutes.....hope that Toyota quote was in error!
New question, Power window makes groaning noise when lowered....sounds ok going up. Any ideas? Anyone have a motor replaced...how much $$$!!!!!
