Stay Away! Get the CRV! by Zoe on 04/24/2009. Trim: 2002 Toyota RAV4 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Cargo space, Cuteness, thats about it
Cons: Sluge in oil, transmission not going to last, bad reviews for a reason
Overall review: bought this car 3 months ago from a dealer, with 61,000 miles, expecting to drive it for another 10 years. First problem I noticed was 62 days after purchase, 9 seconds of thick blue smoke on start up. Immediatly called dealership and they said don't worry we'll take care of it. Well, they put high milage oil in it and away i went. Waited a week to see if the oil would do the trick to swell the seals they thought were leaking. Still 9 seconds of blue smoke. Now as I am waiting for dealership to find me a car for an even trade (which they don't have to do, very nice of them), I am noticing transmission issues, putting car in reverse and it snaps into gear, etc. I loved this car and overlooked the possible slugde issue and possible transmission issue. I have lost all faith in this car and brand, and can't wait to get rid of it. CRV here I come!
