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


I 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

Best Features

Removable rear seats; moonroof; ample front seat leg room; removable rear seat headrests

Worst Features

Rear 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.
