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


Review

You guys who get bad gas milage are
trying way too hard!! I AVERAGE 30.5
mpg doing about 75 on the expressway
and jumping off the line every chance I
get. The automatic is lazy (found that
out on the test drive), so opt for the
5-speed for a little more oomph.


Best Features

gas milage, exterior styling.


Worst Features

I'd love it if Toyota brought the 2- door version back to the US.

Review

HORSEPOWER IS ABOVE AVERAGE FOR A 4
CYL. HAD TROUBLE WITH NOISE IN THE
DASH AND THE TOP CARGO CARRIER.
DEALERSHIP TOOK CARE OF ALL OF THAT.
IT COMES WITH A COMPASS IN THE MIRROR
BUT NO OUTSIDE TEMP. DISPLAY. SEATING
IS GOOD IN THE REAR AND FRONT AND THE
SEATS FOLD DOWN AND COME OUT FOR ADDED
HAULING. FRONT TO BACK MEASUREMENTS
ARE EXCELLENT FOR MY NEEDS WHICH WERE A
ADDED FEATURE FOR BUYING IT AS WERE THE
EXTERIOR DESIGN. THE WESTERN
PENNSYLVANIA HILLS RUN DOWN THE TIRES
THAT WERE ON THE VEHICLE. I HAVE TO
CHANGE THEM THIS SUMMER AND IT'S NOT
QUITE 2 YEARS OLD WITH 17,000 MILES ON
IT.


Best Features

EXTERIOR LOOK, SIZE, GAS MILEAGE AND CARGO HAULING. GOES GOOD IN THE SNOW.


Worst Features

OUTSIDE TEMP. GAUGE IN MIRROR AND BETTER TIRES

Review

I purchased this vehicle new and have
been driving it for three years.
My "toy"ota has been totally reliable.
I have not had problems at all with
any part of the vehicle. It is both
fun and easy to drive because of it's
size. I have documented an average of
28 mpg/gas on trips. I keep the
vehicle clean and shiny and have had
numerous comments on it's beauty. AND,
it's a big hit with teenagers.


Best Features

It's an SUV...my favorite feature is the ease of getting in and out of the vehicle.


Worst Features

To have the back gate open from either side; and/or have the window roll up and down, electronically.

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 didn’t 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.
