2002 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car on sale when the 2003 models came out. Repairs have been slighlty more than I expected but I think it is because the dealer has pumped up service sales. With 100,000 miles the car still handles very well and is very quiet. Brakes seem to wear out more quickly than my last Camry and the AC has broken down twice with leaks but otherwise a great car.


Best Features

Heated leather seats and large trunk. Car is very quiet.


Worst Features

Seat belt retractors never seemd to have worked well after the warranty expired.

Review

Bought this car new in 2002. Has about 103000 miles now. Worst car I have ever owned. Had to have rotors replaced under warranty because of warping and have had them turned several times also. Have already gone through three batteries in less than seven years. The car recently started to run rough at around 40 mph. Dealers initial diagnosis was there is no code so no problem. Second visit for same problem and the diagnosis was a bent right front axle. On the third visit for the same problem the diagnosis is now the transmission O/D. To top it all off the radio is junk, and when you unlock the doors with the keyfob they stay unlocked for about 15 seconds and lock back up.


Best Features

None!!!!


Worst Features

Buy anything but a Toyota

Excellent ride; 23 MPG consistently; very reliable; no repairs or issues over 6 years; 120k miles with the expectation that my kids can get another 100k.

Review

Bought this used and have not been disappointed. Other than a very tiny leak in the AC, no problems. Checked out the competition prior to this purchase and Toyota won easily. More comfortable ride, better interior looks and quality, less in price. I couldn't get over the lack of engine noise! During the first few weeks of ownership I was never sure if the engine had turned over or not! Plenty of power for hills and passing. Very nice ride and good handling. Friends and family have commented on what a nice car it is. Average 24 mpg mixed. Only feature I do not care for is the one touch power window. After two years of trying, I still can't crack the window without several attempts.


Best Features

Quiet engine, smooth ride, comfortable seating, interior looks, roomy trunk, and mileage information display.


Worst Features

Everything closes very solid on the car except the trunk lid. Sounds lightweight and cheap. Rear visibility is not very good with the high back end with spoiler. Rear AC should be fan forced in order to be effective. Do something about those one touch power windows.
