Our Blue Ravioli

Vehicle2002 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewRAV4 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.
Best 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
Worst Features-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.
