Vehicle
2002 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Purchased new in 2002. 56,000 miles today. The Good. Leather seats ergonomic with great back support. Removable seats. Great handling. No major engine problems The Bad. Wimpy 2.0 engine. Interior started rattling soon after purchase and was never properly fixed. Dealership (not toyota) recalled and reprogrammed the ECM (computer) for tranny but experiencing no problems as of today. Forums on RAV Transmission computer problems are scary. Thermostat needed replacement. Side crash tests do not inspire confidence. Rear suspension noise and corrosion of AWD system makes alignment nightmare. My 1995 Chevy Lumina feels it is of a higher quality and that should tell you something.
Favorite Features
Removable seats fold and flip. Beautiful styling (except for rear spare tire tumor hanging off the end). A snap to park. Impulse purchase.
Suggested Improvements
Spare tire on back with hard cover looks goofy. Audio system sounds like a tin can, not what i would expect from a $27,000 SUV. Rear wiper and sprayer useless. Bad Tire wear.
