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


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

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.
