Niosey Rav4 ...
By Vernie on
2002 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The SUV has been a good vehicle up to
this point( I only have 12,000 miles on
it). However the NOISE factor is
annoying. Specifically, the BUZZ that's
somewhere in the dash that the dealer
can't find. I've had it in the shop
twice and they couldn't find, let alone
repair the problem. Intrestingly, when
they told me it was fixed and ready to
go the second time the BUZZ (not a
rattle) was as alive and well as before
it was "repaired". At that point I knew
that it would be pointless to take it
in again for this problem.
Handling, Breaking and Smoothe Ride.
Good dash layout. Attractive interior.
Excellent head and leg room. Cute body
style. Peppy engine. Economical.
Execllent AC and heat. Bright exterior
lights. Comfy ride position.
Find the BUZZING problem and fix it
The drivers armrest is too small,
the frabric covering the armrest is too
rough. The steering wheel doesn't
adjust low enough.
Make vehicle about 12 to 14 inches
longer and 6 to 8 inches wider,
AWESOME! Radio speakers sound muffled.
