Pros

Somewhat quick for the most part it could really get up and go

Cons

Had to do a lot of work to get a aux on original car radio.

A Very Iffy Car — It never suited me, it'd do better as a 16 year old girls car... The v6 came out strong and the engine is mostly quite, the driver and passenger seats were not very comfortable for a 6'1 guy 6.5 out of 10

Good Every Day Car — it is a spacy, smooth driving and very reliable car. nothing ever breaks. ideal for every day use. on ice i prefer an all wheel drive. you must do the regular mainenance such as oil, tire rotation filters, waxing. enjoy!

Pros

interior, great stereo

Cons

Bland looks, gas mileage, uncooperative transmission, reliability

Built To Annoy — If you want to rev your engine and burn tons of gas, you'll love this car. If you try to drive to save gas, the transmission won't cooperate. Averaged about 20 MPG, even with a good amount of highway driving. The moment you're off the highway, your gas mileage plummets. The only highlight was the comfy interior and great JBL stereo

Would Never Buy Another Toyota — I have had nothing but trouble with this car and have only had it for 3 years and still owe on it. Fuel injectors, engine, power windows, brakes, low exhaust that scrapes, moon roof and various other issues.

Pros

A lot of space for a taller person. The appearance for its age still seems as sleek and smooth as some of the newer model cars. The overall design was excellent

Cons

Im a tall person so finding a car with great spacing for leg and head room is kind of difficult to get with cars. This car was not the worst in terms of those conditions but it wasn't the best.

Really Great First Major Car Expense — I absolutely enjoyed driving this car. It was the first car i bought at a dealer and 6 years and 200000 miles later this car is still a smooth operator. I loved this car and if i had a need for a second car i would keep this car well into its 25th year or so of age.

The Gold Standard — The car was one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. I brought this car used with 23,000 miles. After 5 years of road trips I put about 130K miles on the car. The car runs just as smooth when I brought it. I have had no problems with the car. All I did was change the fluids and tires (the factory tires wear quickly. I suggest replace them with Yokahamas). The 2002 Camry is as smooth operator on the highway and quiet to boot. The car engine is so quiet at idle that I've cranked the starter only to find that it was already on. The the ride is as luxurious as any luxury car out there. The 4 cylinder is adequate for most driving situation thought not a power house. My Brothers Altima (4 cylinder) is much faster. The interior is top notch with good materials (much better than Altima). Fuel Efficiency is great with the 4 cylinder. I averaged around 31 on the highways and around 23 mph in the city. The thing about the 2002 Camry is that it is definitely not tunned for sport. Comfort is it's strong suit. The steering gives no feedback and the brakes are a little on the mushy side but have good stopping power when you need it. The handling while secure feels a little square on turns. If you are looking for sport feel this is not the car for you. However if you are looking for a honestly Good Car that is comfortable, fuel efficient, and will keep going for miles then this is your car. You will not be disappointed. Trust me on that.

Excellent — Love my Camry!! has 180,000 miles and still gets around 30 miles to the gallon. I changed the catalytic converter at 150,000 miles (my mechanic tells me to get 150,000 miles out of the original converter was pretty good)... other than that just basic maintenance (oil changes, tires, etc)

Reliable — I like the fact that it is always ready to go. The engine is very strong. The height is just average so it can allow you pass through most bad roads. The acceleration is just ok just for the braking with is clumsy.

Buy This Car — This is an amazing car. If your looking for a reliable family car, that has both room and comfort look no further. We are the original owners and have yet to see a car come so close and competitive to the camry. You will not be disappointed
