2002 toyota camry xle (2.4l)

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought used in 2004 with 45K. The vehicle has 160K and running great. The only repair was the tranny at 98K but covered under 100K warranty, that was close, repair would have been $4,000 at dealer. The cat converter went out at 110K, warranty expired. That was 2 years ago, no problem since. Brakes have been replaced. Good comfortable vehicle. Everyone that drives my vehicle always comment on how smooth it drives.




Transmission problem

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I put up 245000 miles on my previous 1987 Toyota Camry. I did not have any problems, except for regular wear and tear. On my 2002 model, at 119000 miles, It has developed transmission problem. It takes long time to change to higher gear and jerks. If you accelerate, it makes noise and slips. Speedo meter does not work. It stays most of the time at zero and suddenly shows the speed and goes back to zero. I changed sensor, but no use. It needs all the engine mounts to be changed.




Most trouble with toyota

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

This Toyota has given me the most problems of any Toyota I've ever owned. I've owned more than six Toyota products, including a Lexus ES300. The car has 112000 miles and I've had to replace the catalytic converter, two engine mounts, and now the transmission may have to be replaced because the gears are rotten. That's only the most recent issues that come to mind. Other Toyotas have had more than 220000 miles with only normal maintenance costs. What happened?




Great car for the price

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Have owned this car since 03. Bought it as an off lease car w/24K miles. Now has 72K miles and have never been to the shop. I maintain the car myself and find it very easy to service. We drive the car normally and get 28-30 MPG city and have seen almost 40 MPG with the cruise set to 70-75 mph. Not very inspiring to drive, but what a great car for the everyday commute and plenty of room. Paint is starting to peel on rear quarter pannel, but it's now 6 years old and stays outside. Installed aftermarket 17" rims w/performance tires and instantly felt like a different auto!! Overall I am a Toyota customer for good.




6 yrs old and flawless

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought this new in 2002 and it has been fine. Not a high performance vehicle with the 4cyl, but great road car and commuter. Have had not one single problem in 68,000 miles. Get about 32 mpg on the highway, and close to that on my commute mix. Very solid car, but not exciting to drive for me. I'm thinking Acura TSX or RL next time.

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry XLE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought it new. Used for lots of middle distance driving (100-200 miles). Best car I've seen when considering comfort, mileage, and overall driving experience.
