totalnet - I think we had the last generation of RAV4 for only 5 years (from 97 to 00). And maybe 6 years for Japan when it's debut in Japan in 1996. Was it in 1995 in Japan? Anyway, is Toyota planning to stick with 7 years cycle? I can see what they did on the Sienna, 4Runner and Land Cruiser. On the other hand, they pretty much stick with 4 years cycle on Carmy and Corolla. We even see they debut their new year model 6 months earlier most auto markers, like Sienna, RX330 and current model of Corolla.
mckee4 - Thanks for sharing this. My wife is planning to trade her Accord for RAV4. She loves the styling and fun to drive. We are not ready to buy yet because I recently bought a SUV. $$$ issue!! But the deals that I've got have been great with very good price and low APR. I think Toyota will put only 20 more power horsepower (16? hp) if they have plan to redesign it, just try to compete with CR-V.

Found out on a RAV4 site that the first gen RAV4 came out in 1994, so my first message about the model year was wrong. I think Toyota does 4 years ccyle on high volumn cars like Camry and Corolla. As much as I like the RAV4, it doesn't sell as much as those two models.
#912 of 2127 first road trip: great MPG,so-so comfort
Mar 14, 2003 (9:54 am)
Got 27, 30, and 31 MPG from Baton Rouge, LA to Dallas, TX. (2003 RAV 2WD Sport Package, purchased 12/31/02). No complaints there. But I must admit that seat positions/arm rests leave a lot to be desired on a trip of any length. Not something I really paid attention to on the test drive!

I've done 10-hour trips in my '01 RAV.
No comfort problems, even with my tricky back.
I guess your comfort may vary.
#914 of 2127 2002 Toyota Rav4
Mar 23, 2003 (3:40 pm)
Can anyone tell me where I might get the drivers seat cover for the 2002 Rav4. I have called Toyota. They are no help as they contract out that work. They cannot/will not give me the subcontractor. They have no kits available for this model and do not expect any in the near future.I've been to auto upholsterers and auto accessory stores without success This is a leased vehicle....Does anyone know where I might get this item? Any help will be appreciated...Please don't tell me about duct tape..lol
#916 of 2127 about the $1000 discount
Mar 27, 2003 (4:19 pm)
i am thinking to buy a 2003 RAV4, a little confused with the $1000 discount for option
packages, is it already included in the
Edmunds' MSRP and Invoice prices?
#917 of 2127 $1000 discount
Mar 28, 2003 (12:46 pm)
The discount is included in the MSRP listed by both Edmunds and Toyota. So with Toyota's price, it $800 off the invoice price. If the options are bought seperately. Which I think Edmunds has included for the invoice price.
