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


Review

Overall very pleased with my XLE V6.
Especially glad I bought Navigation
and upper side air bags.
Forgot to have dealer exchange
Bridgestone tires (which proved
unsatisfactory) for Michelins.
I replaced all 4 tires with Michelins
at 12,000 miles after a blowout and
repeated problems with hydroplaning at
speeds above 50 mph.


Best Features

Naivgation system is great, well designed and I can't imagine buying a car without it. Compared to other Nav systems, like Honda's and Accura, this one is far better.


Worst Features

Speedometer hard to read - poor location relative to steering wheel rim; calibration poor. They should copy Accords or Lexis. Miss a telescoping steering column. . An updated CD for Nav is available but Toyota wants us to buy it for $250.00! What's with that???

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


Review

Beware of the "performance tires". They
are not all season or snow tires. The
tires do not perform well when the
roads are just wet. My first set of
tires only lasted to 14,000 miles.
Major thread wear down the center of
all 4 tires.The tire mfg,Toyo,replaced
all but 1 tire. I called Toyota in CA.
who basically told me that no, the
tires weren't designed for snow and ice
conditions and if they had to replace
every part they ever received a
complaint about they would be out of
business! Toyota's customer service
motto should read, "Buyer Beware"


Best Features

The car handles nicely on dry surfaces. Interior is comfortable.


Worst Features

Train sales staff to mention the "high performance tires". This is a safety hazzard that I feel should have been mentioned at the time of the sale. Off to the Honda dealer I go. Poor salesmanship!

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


Review

I bought this Camry expecting quality
and reliability. I've had it 2 months
and have had to take it for repairs 8
times. First the rear suspension made
noises. That was fixed after two
tries. Then the overhead light
rattled. The handles on both front
doors rattle. They added foam to both
doors four times and it still makes
noises. Now the radio has started
rattling. There is a delay between
prssing the accelerator and the car
moving. Toyota says signal has to be
processed by the central computer.
However that is dangerous in an
emergency situation. And the brakes
are soft by design. You have to floor
it. I'm selling this Toyota and never
buying one again.


Best Features

Interior Space. Cargo space.


Worst Features

Improve the fit and finish quality. Improve the response time to pressing the accelerator. Improve the soft brakes.

excellent--at least 25 miles per
gallon.


Best Features

Very large Trunk Very Good Gas Mileage Very smooth engine Very little noise at freeway speeds Very "peppy" car


Worst Features

Better Tires Better Sun Visor 5 Speed Automatic would improve performance

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


Review

I have been a loyal Toyota buyer since
1982. I traded in my 1999 Solara for
this vehicle. This car is a
disappointment because of the rattles,
squeeks, creeks coming from the
headliner and front dash. I took it
to the dealer 3 times and on the third
time they told me the car is
in "normal" range for noise. I guess
Toyota has lowered their standards to
American made vehicles for rattles.
There are serious inerior quality
issues with camrys. I have not
experienced the surging/jerking at 50
mph when releasing gas pedal with this
car but did with my Solara, which is
why I dumped it.


Best Features

interior looks sleek, 6-in-dash CD, trunk room you can sleep in, full size spare tire, sports odometer, auto door locks


Worst Features

Dealers should fix rattles/squeeks without insulting the buyer. No new car should have interior noise, especially Toyotas. traction control standard. better premium stereo.
