Recommended Posts

I currently own a RAV 4 ZR6 2010 model, but I only do short trips to work and home each day about 12km each way, is this not good for the engine ?? if not what can I do to help protect and increase the life of the engine ???

Hi james,what I would do is change the oil and filter every 5000kms or every 6 months,which ever comes first.I drive only short distances to work and around town and thats what I do with my kluger,which has the same engine as rav4 and it make your engine last longer and run better.

Have a look in your service book ,it should have servicing for servere driving conditions,you could service it at those intervals.
