Re: RX4 - has anyone got anything positive to say?

Hi Ian.

I have mine for 8years, had been perfect until the gearbox died.

I have not had any issues with mine until this.

I'm madly chasing a 2nd box for it now.

From what I have learnt, the later 2002 onward ones had better designed boxes, the diff was fixed so as not to let go as they had a tendency to do.
The other issue with the 5th gear is able to be checked by a good mechanic while the box is in the car. If there is any noteable wear, this can be changed as well, with box still in car.

I'd love to get mine going again, as I don't think there is a car in the price range, which was and is all I could muster a few years back in the way of $$.
Great value for money IMHO, roomy, they are economical,not sure who said they were not.
