Strong Looks, Family First, Reliable. — The miles per gallon is a minus. Horse Power is a Plus. Excellent for traveling from state to state. The engine is very quiet and you can fit big luggage in the trunk. There is lots of space in the back seat for 3 people. I would buy it again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: lots of power and cruise control. safety rating is excellent.

Cons: Could be more gas efficient

Overall:

Give Older Camry's A Shot...and Use Amsoil For Better Overall Performance! — I bought my 2002 Toyota Camry LE 4 cyl. Used w/ 74,000 miles on it. I knew I was buying a grocery-getter that had mediocre performance and a non- existent "fun-factor", but the up-sides are still plentiful. The interior has very comfortable seats that border on luxurious and plenty of room for 4 full-grown adults and 1 young adult. Also, the trunk has a seemingly bottomless 16.7 cu. Ft. Of room, which I have only been able to fill once and that was with a drum set that was packed up. At about 82K miles, I flushed the engine, transmission and power steering unit and replaced all these fluids with Amsoil 100% synthetic, and the car drove much smoother and I obtained an all-time high of 34.5 mpg, and I now average 33 mpg with 125,000 miles on the Camry 4 cyl. The paint job sparkles when clean, and the build quality is still pretty good (my Camry was assembled in Georgetown, Kentucky). This car has been rock-solid for me in terms of reliabilty, functionality and low cost of ownership.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roominess, reliability, intelligent and thoughtful engineering

Cons: Performance, boxy looks

Beautiful 2002 car! All cosmetic items in great shape. Steering loose. Brakes shaky. Engine vibrations at idle. Not safe choice for younger drivers. Good economical choice for very experienced steady drivers.
