GOOD trade if all is good, the rav 4 4 cylinder cooling system problem . it leaks anti into a cylinder and at first will cause a miss fire when started from a cold soak ( overnight) just be carefull because the rav 4 is worth twice what the escape is


It's a trade for a Toyota 4Runner not Rav 4.

I wouldn't do it. 178K miles is a boatload of miles. They don't last forever. My suggestion is get something with fewer miles.

sorry mis read!!!!


Lol no worries..... I am kind of bummed at all the negative responses :(


Nothing to be bummed about. You will get nothing but honesty from me. It's just too many miles, but it is your money. Maybe consider a newer one?
