Pros: Beware of how Toyota will cease up after 80,000 km
Cons: How the factory and dealer treated us.
Advice: Buyer beware!!!Beware ! Research Toyota engine sludge problem !!!!
Pros: The SE package
Cons: none yet
Advice: Test drive and compare.Smoothest sedan I have owned, and I have owned many. The new 4-cylinder performs like a V6 in most other cars. Don't waste your money on the V6 unless you carry alot of people. The LE is not as attractive as the SE or XLE.
Pros: Everything that is Standard on the new 02's
Cons: Wish Keyless Entry was Standard
Advice: You will be amazedMy First Test drive I was sold on the New 2002 Camry. This car is extremely comfortable and very smooth. When the car is running it is very quite. The roomy inside is a big plus. The 02 Camry's look is like the new lexus which adds class. So far it is the best car I have ever owed.
Pros: spacious inside, great value
Cons: not as powerful as i would have liked
Advice: get it now while its still cheap. I prefer the v6 engine but the four cylinder is also great.beautiful car!! more spacious then last year and a cheaper price then last years model. overall this car is worth the value and is a better choice than an american made car.
Pros: Power when you need it.
Cons: Why there aren't any lights under dash areas?
Advice: Know what you need and what you likeI have owned,a new 87 VW Golf GTI,a used 87 BMW 528I. I have an 87 BMW 325I.As a used car manager for A Dodge Dealer drove a different car everyday. My wife owns an 83 MBZ 380SL. Being in car business,I was never a Toyota buyer myself. I don't particularly like the name CAMRY ! What is that? Is it in japanese? I used to think Toyota is for Old people I still do.Till I drove a 2002 Camry SE! Wow? This is no joke. Six months ago you would find my dead body in a camry. Today,I drive one. Here are some prerequisites b4 buying a Camry: 1- Must want a 4 Dr sedan. 2- Must have access to real power if need be.(This thing takes off at 80 miles an hour!) 3- You do not want to spend a lot of money on a car that boasts 350 hp and 24 speakers. 4- See if you can find anything sense-less in a camry SE.
Pros: The design
Cons: Pushy salesman
Advice: Compare prices before heading to the dealership.It runs good. A lot of room. Good visibility. Quiet. Good acceleration. The main reason I bought the Camry is the design of the body. It's just beautiful. Baldwin Park, CA
Pros: The quiet ride
Cons: acceleration was terrible
Advice: I would suggest that you make a list of importance. Then testdrive NissansI am currently in the market for a mid-size car. I test drove the Maxima SE, Altima 2.5S, and the Camry LE and V6XLE. I must say that Camry has the best overall quality. The only problem with the car is that it seems to have a problem with acceleration. Of couse, the Camry isn't made for acceleration though. In my opinion there was little different between the V6 and the 4-cyliner models. The Camry also has great turning radius. I'd suggest you test drive both cars if you are in the market for a Camry. I would also consider the Maxima / Altima.
