2002 Toyota RAV4 SUV 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

RAV4 offers SUV convenience yet great gas mileage of 24/city and 28/highway because the car runs in fifth except when you override it. Comparable makes offered 6-10 mpg less. We didnít see the economy until 10,000 miles. Other great features were the back, with low floor and side-closing door (and tire hangin on door.) A child can change clothes at the beach in complete privacy. It is shorter than the Corolla and easy to park. Difficult to find any color but silver or white, we finally found blue. The blue, green and red are stunning. With override button on the shifter, it gets us up hills quickly. This is a great family car.


Favorite Features

-Low floor in back with side swing door -Great Gas mileage -Cup holders and nets to store maps -Remote mirror adjust -Removable back seats for which also fold down -In 2000, the car was redesigned to be wider, so rollover danger much less -Back windshield wiper great


Suggested Improvements

-Seat upholstery chafes with baby seat, requiring blanket -Noisy with back windows open -Back door should open to curve, not street -Poor location of the gas and hood openers at seat bottom, a challenge for elderly.

Review

For a 4 cylinder AWD and as light as this vehicle is it stinks on gas mileage. We get 17 miles/gal around town. Ugh. The CRV we had got 24 around town and it was a 6 cylinder AWD It doesn't hold it's value. We leased it, we have 5,500 mile son it and to buy out the lease is still $23,000...more than a brand new one. Don't buy one.


Favorite Features

It is comfortable


Suggested Improvements

Do something about the lousy gas mileage

Review

Great car. The only complaint I have is that the roof rack is making some noise as I drive. The fold down/take out seats have been great--I can fit a lot into this little car.


Suggested Improvements

Back seat is uncomfortable. Position sunroof over the driver instead of behind.
