"Love this car, bought the 02 new and have had it ever since. Seats can be a bit stiff on long rides and it annoys me there is only one speed for the wipers but other than those two minor issues I love this car as much now as I did when I bought it. No major repairs can't even tell you how the dealership is b/c I just didn't have to deal with them!!!"
"This has been an excellent car for us. Absolutely no repairs needed (Except that one piece flew off the roof rack as we left the dealer's lot. They fixed it.) This car is 100% reliable. We chose it because it gets good gas mileage, so our gasoline bills are low. Because the rear seats can be folded or removed, it is adequate to handle our occasional trip to home depot. In fact, when we needed a new bathtub, I had them load the bathtub on top of the Rav 4 and drove it 15 miles home. No problem! This car is cute, but not tremendously stylish. My one complaint it that the driver's headrest is not quite right. However, I"m willing to overlook that because this is such a good car. And it makes up for the headrest problem by having a cute gadget to adjust the seatbelt so it doesn't cut into your neck. I'll miss that on my next car!"
