Reliable and comfortable affordable SUV

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

The only problem I have with my rav4 and I really can't complain because this car has been so reliable. It has 172 thousand miles and I have out on the last 15 thousand and the only money I have put into the car is regular maintenance. Now the only problem is the auto lock when you hit the button to lock all 4 doors the driver side you must do manually. I bought these electronic locks for your keychain and because of that problem I can't sync them so they are useless. I bought the car this way and was fully aware of it before I purchased. All I really care about is it good on gas and will it break down. Its fair on gas a super reliable

I love this car ! It's a must buy

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

The vehicle drives great ! I love the interior. The convince of the cup holders and the radio. It comes with an aux input if you don't like listening to the radio. I recommend anyone to get this car . It's definitely worth the money. It also comes with GPS on the screen on back mirror to ensure proper and safe reversing.

Dark green 2002 Toyota rav4.

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

My 2002 Toyota rav4 is great, it really is. Although, gas mileage is not the best. The door seal sounds like it might be coming loose, and you can hear the wind. Sounds like a whistle, kind of. Also, I wanted a 4wd vehicle and seen that it was, but there is actually no switch for the 4wd, so technically just a AWD.

Pros and cons of Toyota rav4.

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

Had problems with acv, transmission, and coils, but runs well after cleaning oil system. Comfortable and economical, but suspension is a bit hard and rough. Have had to replace the computer and have the transmission rebuilt. Air conditioning is somewhat weak. All in all, it is a good reliable car.

Toyota RAV4 is wonderful!!

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

Love my Rav4! Super reliable and even though it is on the older side it works well as well as gets me from point A to point B in a good fashion!! Very comfortable and allows for good storage in the car! Comfortable from the driver's seat and passengers have said they love riding in it too!

History of my 17 years old car that I love.

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

It is a good car, good performance. It is an economic car. I have it since new 0 miles. It has a lot of comfort. It has CD, radio and tape. It got only 140,000 miles for a car that has 17 years. It is a car that really I recommend to anyone. I am now looking for the new one.

Toyota's RAV4 Review and 1st survey

2002 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

I feel safe driving this vehicle. Good gas mileage and is comfortable to drive. Everything is automatic in it and I have never had a problem with the motor. Even with high mileage the car runs very well. No rust spots and the exhaust isn't loud even for being an older car.
