I will write mostly about Maintenance
1) My O2 Sensor was on at 76k miles, had to replace Catalatic Converter- fixed it with Company waranty, which is normally 80k miles for Catalatic Convertors- 2000$ TOYOTA Bill
2) At 80k & 135k- Front Brakes shoes and Disc-250$
3) at 139k- Starter- 300$
4) at 90k- collant tank leak- 200$
5) All four tires at 70k and 125k -600$
6) Front and Back STRUTS are leaking, needs to replace at 105k- estimates around 1600$ TOYOTA Estimate
7) Engine Oil is leaking at 100k miles
8) Replaced Battery at 80k and 125k

Bought Camry 2002 in 2009 with 229.000 km on odometer. Now it has 357.000!! One ignition coil was replaced and starter (it costs me $300 together). I cannot believe... Moreover, car still running perfect. Sometimes I thinking about something more fresh... but not sure Toyota follows their good traditions. My car was made in Japan.

I bought my 2002 Camry LE at 52k and now have 129k with no issues and I don't really expect any.
We are a Toyota family having had 5 Corollas, 2 Camrys and a recently purchased 1998 Lexus ES 300 with 120k miles.
If taken care of with regular maintenance these cars will last well beyond 200k miles.
My next car will most likely be a 10 yr old Camry or Lexus.
Can't go wrong IMO.

I received this car as a hand-me-down from my aunt in 2009 with 66K miles.
In the three years in my possession, it is the most reliable car I've ever owned.
In those three years, it has not needed anything for inspection, which makes me happy.
Now at 104K miles, there are two MINOR problems that I discovered, such as a 'moaning' steering wheel and a recent minor fuel leak.
Overall it is a very trustworthy and stubborn car.
I definitely recommend this car to anyone.

The first owner was my dads friend. with no care for his car. barely any oil changes or checkups gave it to us at 140,xxx. Had one accident already. and went through 3 more. 1 from the back, 1 in the front. got it fixed and kept on going the car died 4 months ago at 189,xxx but dont think yours will too since the car was in the last accident which caused it. so after we got it from him. we kept it in top condition and i know for a fact we could have pushed it to over 250k. so my opinion? its one tough s.o.b. i honestly recommend it.

Brought the car new in Jan 2002.
Initially a few bugs as the first year model.
It had a dash noise which the helpful dealer fixed under warranty in their second try.
Fuel filter changed under warrant at 5000 miles.
Those are the only things wrong and the car is at 140,000 miles today.
Very dependable and comfortable car which I drove everywhere with my family in it.
Only regular maintenance and mobile 1 full sync oil with 10,000 OCI. Recently I cleaned the Throttle Body and idles like new again.
Will keep it until wheels fall off, but it seems I will wait a long time for new cars as this one is strong.
One of America's favorite cars is all new this year. Design goals for the 2002 Toyota Camry included larger interior packaging, reduced noise, more advanced safety features, better driving dynamics and, of course, a new standard of value.
