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


My silver Auto 2WD 2002 RAV4 is
celebrating its first birthday next
week with 19K miles. About 3 weeks
after I purchased this SUV, it
developed the infamous rattle in the
dash. I've had it to the dealer twice,
but it was never fixed. I was told to
turn up the radio. After about six
months, the rattle had become less
annoying (perhaps I'm getting used to
turning up the radio) and intermittent -
seems to be worse in the cooler
weather, but disappears when its hot or
when the heater is on in the winter.
Other than this annoyance, I'm happy
with the RAV4.

Best Features

Unique styling, comfortable seating, easy entrance/exit, economical, nicely equipped (L Pkg), fun to drive.

Worst Features

Better sound system needed to drown out all the creeks and rattles. Unless you like spiked hair, don't try to drive with the front side windows down!
