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


I've had my Rav4 for nearly 8 years and the only issue I ever had was with the engine light coming on within the first 2 or 3 years. Since the car was still under warranty, the O2 sensor that was causing the light to go on was replaced/repaired, and I've had no problems at all since then. With a standard transmission, it not only gets over 25 MPG even in city traffic, it also has great pick-up. I like having plenty of room. It came in handy when I moved. Removing and replacing the rear seats is challenging (but doable) for me, but for someone who isn't petite it might not be too difficult. I still think it's a good looking car, too. It's one of the wisest purchases I've ever made.

Best Features

Great mileage, Lots of room for a small SUV, Peppy standard transmission

Worst Features

Make the rear seats easier to take out and put back. Make the body less vulnerable to dings. Make more of the upscale options available. Make it in a HYBRID!!! :-)
