    Default need rx4 x2 gone Sydney

    As per the title I need to lose 2 Rx4's quickly.

    One is a wreck, blue colour , missing a brake line and a PAS sensor, but otherwise complete.

    The other was my daily driver, fancy metallic blue colour….a bit beaten up but presents OK,
    4 weeks NSW rego…..
    full leather interior, cruise control (aftermarket????) Ac that works, fairly new radiator, rear shocks, driveshaft donut…... everything works but the car comes with one massive issue….
    Possibly an ABS issue which sends the warning lights on, and takes out the speedo, and possibly a master cylinder issue with allows too much pedal travel.

    The rego'd car can be driven…..just.
    Brakes work, but do not have enough power to lock wheels.

    Starts first and every time.


    Both cars have great gearboxs.

    Located northern beaches sydney.



    Anyone interested in one or both these cars.
    Virtually give away price!!!!!

    Hey mate, very keen on the cruise control.
    I think I actually test drove your car in Brisbane prior to buying mine in 2005. Only one I've ever seen.

    I'd be keen on the interior too as mine is cloth.

    Just got off the phone with the scrappers….

    $180 is what they'll give me for the rego'd car, so if anyone wants them, that is market value….
    Will book them in for removal friday tomorrow unless I hear differently.

    I wouldn't know where to start with these modern renaults.

    Don't have the time, space, or motivation either, unfortunately.

    Jo, how often does the brake issue appear? Would the dirve back to Qld be safe? I am still keen, didn't know you wanted them gone so fast.

    Hi Jo, i definitely need a working one, right now i can come! i'm in St. Ives atm, some nice guy replied to my post mentioning your cars. im a peugeot guy. excellent DIY , electronic fault/troubleahooting byt sadly dropped a bolt inside my engine and my car with my lugagge are stalled(check my posts) and so is my income... mechanical engineer, so as long as it drives i can keep income, in return, i offer you that i keep it in your name as a gurantee and pay you good value for it later.. whatever you'd decide. im dying to fix my car which has major issues...definitley would pay you better than wrecking but my card has near 0.... so thats why i offer you to take it and get my work going again then pay you a better value (might even repair i for cheap!)

    Hello, Nabil
    Thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately the working car is already spoken for, so all i have left is the non working wreck.
    Sorry
