2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #69

Hi everyone. I own Toyota RAV4 II 2002, blue, European for more than 10 years, mileage is more than 230 thousand, so I have something to say. --- they don't make them like that anymore. Yes, there were problems with the ECU (there were few official sales in Russia) Toyota placed an order for them in Taiwan from Denso, and local cross-eyes used acid-shit solder when desoldering and over time the soldering dried out and the contact disappeared AND EVERYTHING !!!!!! !! There are no more pains. About the drive --- small Prado 120th, in winter on the track it is "iron on asphalt", but of course with a choice of good winter studs. Why He: I live in Tomsk, Siberia, 9 - 8 months winter conditions or close to them, therefore 4 HP and only an honest permanent drive, and not everything else because of saving a couple of liters. I wanted the 120th, but to carry one Zh., and even in the city, is not economical and you can’t be smart with its dimensions. For the service staff: changing oil, filters no later than 10 thousand mileage, the first replacement in the automatic transmission was carried out by me at 90 thousand and it was light and without the smell of "burnt garlic" - that is, it was still working with might and main, the next ones also every 80 thousand. Although Toyota fills times and according to the "Talmud" for the entire period of operation, and a locksmith in various "farms" claims 40-60 thousand km. I regularly check the probe, how the shift starts to get dark, then everyone decides for himself. Suspension: reliable, "eggs" consumption even in the city, blurted out --- for replacement, first replacement of the front struts with a little over 100 for Kayaba, rear about 140 or so, brake discs are still native, but machined at 180 thousand, replaced right rear hub also at this time. I changed the brake pads a couple of times for all the time for some kind of Japanese ... moto, I don’t remember. A couple of years ago, the glass of the left headlight began to become cloudy. Engine: ............. pah pah pah. I cleaned the roller of the idle speed sensor with electric sound and the throttle valve by 150. ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The rest is just mini-tuning: replacing the head unit with a TV and navigation, installing a flat subwoofer under your seat, rear-view cameras, covers. The farthest trip to the Crimea. Changed the oil, filter, fluid and go with his wife. And even the thought of no "back" does not arise that you can not get to point B. Thanks to everyone who read it, good luck with choosing a car and less problems with its attendants, I wish you all good health in our time.

2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #513

Good afternoon everyone, I want to tell you a little about my car, I used Toyota Rav4 for 5 years, I was completely satisfied with the car, I took it in 2005, the car was 3 years old, I ordered it from the Emirates. When she came, I got behind the wheel of my car for the first time, I really liked its interior design, in general, everything, the engine was simple, not VVT-I, I left the intersection from the LEXUSA RX300, which I also owned for some time, I especially liked the turning radius of the car I turned around where the Lexus was not possible.

2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #556

Hi all! I have owned RAV for 6 months, so it is already possible to judge the car more or less adequately. The previous car was Nissan Bluebird le Grand 2000, QG18, automatic transmission, front wheel drive. In parallel with the RAV, a HARRIER 2000, 4WD, 2.2L, is operated. Therefore, along the way, RAVik will be compared with these cars.

2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #529

Today is a special day... I sold a 2002 three-door RAV4 and bought a 2004 five-door RAV4. I dedicate my words to a three-door baby! .. When I, in love with this little miracle, dreamed about him every second, my friends did not understand WHAT I was in love with ... Willy-nilly, almost all of them, these friends (owners of luxurious and not very cars ) signed that my "Raffell": not a "crazy stool" and not a "shifter", but a small shepherd puppy with strong paws, and with serious intentions! Now, driving a more serious car, I want to appreciate the advantages of his little brother: I could turn around in a tiny patch! .. I moved from row to row among slow hippos at the speed of sound! .. when I, leaving the parking lot backwards, and watching how many are aiming at my place, not realizing that ONLY MY baby can, folding mirrors and pressing his ears to his back, enter such a hole ... for me and "Rafell" there were practically no parebriks, ditches and hatches - clearance 185 mm! Of course: a lot depends on the gasket between the steering wheel and the seat! BUT! Of the five cars that I have driven for 14 years - the three-door Toyota RAV4 of 2002 - this is a true little "drop of mercury" that, with proper care, will never let its owner down!... Today, looking after my little friend who is leaving forever, I uttered the words: “Bye, my faithful friend! I won’t be bored! But I will always remember you as a faithful thoroughbred horse! And your new mistress will soon appreciate it !!! I have never been ashamed of you!”

2002 Toyota RAV4 Review #143

Good afternoon, I have owned this car for the second year and now I decided to write a review, I have a five-door front-wheel drive rav, with a 1zz engine, I got it not new, but in quite good condition, when I bought it, I replaced all oils and filters, except for fuel. And for almost a year and a half nothing more! Although I travel a lot, in winter it’s winter fishing, in summer the sea often has to move to the dolnyak, I’ll say this, it’s better not to get into specific mud and porridge, although once I had to, I got out without anyone’s help .. seas, fields, primers, not global off-road passes with a bang, no worse than all-wheel drive, that's just deprived of the crap that is associated with the latter. I'm talking about high consumption and fuel D4 (from the beginning I wanted exactly the HP, until I looked like a comrade complains about the engine) the track is just the ideal, on a hundred square meters it ideally enters the turn without any inclinations. Consumption of about 8 track (without pressing on the floor) 10-11 city. I had to travel to another region, the winding at minus 36 went off with a bang. But I have a new Akum, but the capacity is 55. It's enough for him. In the cabin, one is not wealthy, it does not unfold into a flat floor, but the rear seats are removed in a couple of seconds and you can sleep by sliding the front ones, but I lowered the front ones to the floor and also rolled, not very convenient, but it will do. The presence of three cigarette lighters, two of them powerful, just in the subject, any pumps, including Chinese ones, a kettle, a beech, everything is pulled. The place could have been made bigger, but that's okay. Four adults sit comfortably, the fifth will not be very good, but tolerable, I do not advise for long distance. The presence in the trunk of many compartments pleased. Never had any problems with the door. A big plus is that a full wheel in the spare tire, not a banana. The torpedo is simple, without frills, but quite convenient, everything is always at hand, any button or indicator. Lew only 95 alliance, there were no breakdowns for 17 thousand, the main thing is to change the oil and the filter without fail, but, once I bought and installed the candles myself, simple, that's all. The dynamics during acceleration is good, but if you press on the floor, it starts to eat benz. I’ll say it like this, which zz doesn’t eat it .. It’s probably individual for everyone .. I don’t eat the first 3-3.5 thousand after the replacement, then it starts a little, but not critically, 600-700 thousand grams for three four, until the next replacement, conclusion? Change the oil more often.. I only have 5w30 synthetics. I would fill it with thinner, but I'm afraid the mileage is already about two acres, it will suddenly squeeze out of the seals, although it may be in vain. You read everything and start scoring. I’ll also add that my comrade Vdy Rav nevertheless sold it, hesitating to clean the fuel, but I never had to. All the same, it’s not for nothing that Toyota occupies one of the first places in the world, the car is already 17 years old, and there isn’t a piece of rust or rot on it (I looked at Htrely before buying, a completely different picture, even on samples younger than mine) the stove heats up well, the air conditioner cools. In terms of speed, I will say this, up to 120 it accelerates easily, after it is more difficult. But it’s also not the pedal to the floor, I’ll say this, I drove a maximum of 150, 3300-3500 rpm, it was just scary more, you just don’t feel the speed up to 130. What else to say, happy with the car. I also looked at the old polecat, but they dissuaded me .. automatic mats often fly, at 3.0. Here they wrote there are no spare parts for him, I don’t know, I opened the Internet, as much as you like, you want Taiwan, you want contract, but you want new orders from Japan. In general, the machine itself is for Vlad, the dead roads just stopped noticing and slowing down at every hole. The suspension is stiff, but quite reliable. I have never climbed there, but, I note, I carefully try to drive, not to wring out the car ... You can kill an armored personnel carrier if you wish ... In general, something like this, dear comrades, I hope someone will need a review

The plastic in the cabin is easily scratched. Cool air conditioning. Inconvenient key, does not add up.

From the beginning about myself. I live, one might say, in the South of Ukraine (Mariupol). The weather makes us happy here, snow in winter, frosts (up to -25), spring, autumn - mud, heat in summer. Dogrogs are in places, in places they are not. I've been running it since 2004. I took it from my hands with a mileage of 30,000 (real mileage). Drove 70,000. I like the car, simpotnaya from the outside, inside, comfortable, practical.
