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


Overall the RAV4 has been a nice car to
drive around town in. The styling is
attractive and it gets the gas mileage
advertised. At 2 yrs. old the seal on
my RAV's back window leaked and had to
be replaced and the sunroof began
leaking almost as soon as I got it.
I've been told the backseats are
terribly uncomfortable on long trips.
My biggest complaint would be the
hesitation in the transmission.
The '02 RAV also has very little
power. I understand that has been
improved in the '04 model. Overall, it
is fun to drive and gives the driver an
excellent view of the road. It has a
fabulous braking system and handles
