2002 Toyota RAV4

After a thorough redesign in 2001, the 2002 Toyota Rav4 arrived with no major changes. Consumers seemed to be liking the new, bigger, and more powerful Rav4, so Toyota left well enough alone.

The Rav4 is small enough to feel nimble on city streets, yet large enough that the taller reviewers (6 feet plus) felt comfortable in both front and back seats (okay, less comfy in the back).

The Rav4 has earned a reputation as a reasonably-priced SUV with reasonable fuel efficiency (about 22/26 city/highway, although again people we spoke to claimed to get up to 30 mpg on the highway).

Instrument Cluster

I'm trying to change out the lights in my cluster to led, however, when I opened my cluster there was no twist locks to pull. Do all cars come with that or select few? I'm using a Rav4 2002.
