2002 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

When my Corolla was starting to get too small for me, I decided to get something larger. I purchased and extended warrantee, and have yet to use it. This vehicle made it through two years if freezing Toledo, Ohio without a single problem. I just turned 54,500 miles, and the car drives like new. This will most certainly be my last vehicle. With this low mileage, the car will outlast me.


Best Features

I like everything about this car. It is roomy, comfortable, roadworthy, dependable, and on the highway, driving 70 miles per hour or more, I get 30-32 miles per gallon.


Worst Features

None. This is my dream car

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


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!!!!

Buy anything but a Toyota

2002 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We purchased this new, and after 7 years, I have had only one repair, other than routine maintenance. The breaks needed to be replaced after 85,000. The car is extremely quiet, which I really like. It now has 93000 miles, and I expect to have it another 7 years!


Worst Features

The seats need to be deeper.

2002 Toyota Camry Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Runs good most of the time (hard to start in the winter). Powerful and smooth engine. Gets around 30 mpg. Smooth, quiet ride with roomy and comfortable interior. Now the bad... Interior is very cheap; it's just about falling apart. Engine does not want to start in cold weather. Car is too low. It bottoms out on everything! Hard to get parts for. Toyota charges an arm and a leg for the parts they do have. No ABS with brakes that tend to lock up all the time. Transmission likes to downshift when slowing down on a downhill. If it does that in the rain or snow your tires will lose traction! I've had too many close calls with lost traction in this car.


Best Features

Roomy interior, quiet ride, good gas mileage, powerful engine.


Worst Features

Toyota now offers ABS standard on these (very smart move). Make parts more readily available for a car this popular. Make the interior more durable than an '85 Ford Escort's (my parents had one... sadly my Camry reminds me of it). Engine needs to be better for cold weather.
