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


I've had my all wheel drive RAV4 for one year now. Only problem I had was a check engine light came on once, took it in to the dealership and it was corrected (nothing serious). It is a great car for errands, city driving and shorter trips. I've taken it on one long trip and wished it had an 8-way power adjustable seat with more support, and more insulation against road noise. No complaints about interior rattles except for the lock on the glove box, sometimes buzzes.

Best Features

I love the styling, car-like ride, nimble handling, high driving position and all wheel drive capabilities and the size of the car, especially when parallel parking.

Worst Features

Wished it had better (more adjustable) seats, a storage compartment under the passenger seat (or somewhere convenient upfront for a handbag), more insulation against road noise and arm rests. Would be nice if ABS and rear tinted windows were standard.
