Good midsize with lots of annoyances
By Jabberwocky on


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


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.
