Overall, I think this vehicle is a good value. I like the fact that the back seats can be removed, and the dashboard panel is easy to reach and use. I wish it got better gas mileage for a 4 cylinder vehicle.

First, the name (Toyota) makes it a good car. However, the year (2002) and the milage is what concerns me. The only other SUV that I would consider its equal is Honda CRV.

It's All Good — Nice tight turning radius. 4WD works exceptionally well; I've driven thru snow well over a foot deep with no problem. A/C still going strong after 12 years! A surprising amount of cargo space for a compact SUV. By far, the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Best vehicle I've ever owned.  Has not required a single repair!  Runs as smoothly and handles as well as it did when I bought it 9 years ago.  4WD works great in heavy weather.

Cons: Frankly, can't think of any cons.

Best Car I've Ever Had! — I no longer travel with this car to keep the mileage down, but it is one of the best things about this car. Low gas mileage and the capacity is greater than it appears, you will be surprised how much you can fit. VERY low maintenance! I feel I have received all the benefits of an SUV without the inconvenient large exterior and high fuel cost.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely Reliable!!!  Great for travel, low gas milage and large cargo capacity!

Cons: Could use minor paint touch up.

Newest Version Of This Car Is Okey, But As It Gets +5 Years, Its More Expensive Maintaining It — Over all for a +5 to 10 years car, this is a good one esp. for family use. Not good for rainy, slippery roads. Need to upgrade to much better power steering wheel Has a lot of space, back seats can be folded to give more room for cargos and stuff.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: big

Cons: as it gets older, higher maintenance cost, and not fuel efficient

Great Small Suv — I loved this car for its reliability, smooth ride, comfort, economic use of gas. She has never been a worry or a let down. lots of storage space in the back. she did have a little struggle with snow as she is front wheel drive vs 4 wheel drive. But never got truly stuck unless I couldn't dig her out of a snow bank. Nice cd and radio system. Everything works. She has miles to go.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safe, reliable, good on gas, easy to drive, good visibility, roomy inside, not noisy, powerful enough for local and highway driving.

Cons: a little weak on hills when lots of snow and ice.

Toyota Rav 4 — This is a cheap suv, but it isn't a good family car, because is too little, anyway you seat good on the front seats, but back you seat like if you are in a coupè. Technology is not the best, it is too slow and it isn't also a good off-road suv.

Pros: cost

Cons: too slow

Love Mine. — Nice car, needs mods to stand out because a lot of RAV4s around are stock silver with stock alloy rims. Drives well, especially in snow, AWD is perfect for this car, as it's extremely hard to lose traction in snow. Not too light, not too heavy. Gets decent gas mileage, (20-22 city 25 highway), and all around is a fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Going on 100K miles and no major problems yet. (Knock on wood)

Cons: MPG could be better for a 2.0 engine.
