1st Time Toyota Buyer

Vehicle2002 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI got rid of my '96 GMC Jimmy and bought the RAV4. The 4-cyl. has good acceleration and nimble handling. I'm dissapointed in the gas mileage--21 mpg in the city. I've tried switching to an 89 octane with no better results, so I'm sticking to 87. The rear headrests can block your view, so if you routinely drive alone, I'd suggest removing them for the clearest view. I'm tall--5'10" and there is plenty of leg room on the driver's side. Annoying rattle behind the glove compartment at speeds in excess of 30. Rear seats remove and reinstall with ease. Nice feature to haul around the dogs.
Best FeaturesRemovable rear seats; moonroof; ample front seat leg room; removable rear seat headrests
Worst FeaturesRear door opens to the right and is difficult to manuever around; improve that gas mileage or be more honest on the window sticker; Get rid of annoying rattles.
