You are in the Toyota RAV4
What is this discussion about?
Toyota RAV4, SUV
#1062 of 2127 VINs for 2004 and impressions

spleck, thanks for that website with the VIN #s...very handy since my local Toyota dealer only has one 2004 RAV4 at present and it's a dealer's demo. (By the way I asked him about the "lack of rear bumper" issue and he disagreed. Hmmm.)
rodkent, thanks for posting your impressions. Sounds like a nice, small, well constructed car...except maybe that rear bumper.
When do they retest these cars for crash tests?

You think my answer made "absolutely zero" sense?
I'll try to explain: The test backs the vehicle into a post at 5 mph. To avoid such a result, I suggested not backing into well-anchored vertical cylindrical objects at 5 mph.

Actually, it's spelled capisce!

does anyone have rattling noises under dashboard, and clicking noises on driver side seat and rear right
passenger seat like it's not locked in place.

i just got my 2004 RAV4 last saturday. I did not notice any noise problem inside the car. However, what you mentioned about the clicking noise from the driver seat, I did hear that a couple times already, maybe I should take it back to dealer and check it out. Overall, I enjoyed the first 2 days of driving my new car. =)

So it is a Chevrolet Capisce? Huh.

A "Caprisce" perhaps?

Can owners tell me what gas mileage they get with 2WD auto and 4WD auto? Remember to state 2WD or 4WD please! Thanks.

2001 AWD auto trans now at 46k miles: 24.8 mpg overall since new (mostly suburbs/hwy, with a light foot).
All-day highway driving: 28 mpg several times.
Winter gas with MTBE, the penalty is 2+ mpg.
