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


Review

2002 Toyota Camry! To me that means
reliability. The car has a lot of
power for a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder. It
performs nice with the exception on
very loose steering. Uneven pavement
will cause the car to pull easily
although the alignment is right on. .


Best Features

Trunkspace, Fuel economy, Seats 5 comfortably, 157 horsepower seems like a low number seeing is believing the car really takes off.


Worst Features

Uneven roads show engineering flaws in vehicle. Front-end upgrades need for more solid road performance. Overall very happy with the car. Make ABS Brakes, 4 disc, Keyless entry standard. Also more noise deading material, they almost got it right.

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


Review

The car is OK if you like 4 door
sedans. Don't buy it for the value
though, it doesn't hold any. The road
noise is a little too much on the
highway but handles OK. My Dodge truck
is a lot quieter. Watch out for the
dealers though, we found they are the
biggest liars and won't buy another
Toyota for that reason.


Best Features

Interior is nice.


Worst Features

It needs to be a little quiter on the road.

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

In addition to many minor problems
that were fixed by the dealer (fuel
pump, loose shield under car) this car
has so many paint chips and flakes
that the paint job must be defective.

Worst Features

quality of paint job is terrible

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


Review

Very smooth riding car and quiet for
this size and price range. Seats and
roominess are very comfortable.
Shifting is smooth, although
acceleration for the 2.4L is not that
great, but adequate nonetheless.

AC works fine, although Toyota (as well
as many other brands) has to get a clue
about heating. As anybody knows, hot
air rises; thus, put heating vents as
low to the floor as possible. I find
that no matter how hot and heavy I run
the heater, my feet remain cold while
my upper body burns up. Fortunately, I
don't live in a really cold place like
Minnesota.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride, with good handling abilities. Comfortable interior. Easy to change oil on your own.


Worst Features

Better heating system needed, with vents closer to the floor, so hot air can begin low near the feet and then rise. Terrible transmission dipstick design: one must jam the dipstick back in very hard because it bends at a very sharp angle.

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


Review

Bought in spring 02, and after 18
months no issues. Runs smooth, quiet,
2.4L has plenty of power and good
economy. Have taken many long trips
and very pleasant driving with family
of four--two teenagers.


Best Features

Smooth ride but not soft, reliability, clean interior design. Incredible room and comfort in rear seats.


Worst Features

front seats are a little short for me, would like more support.
