This is a great car to own, in fact hubby and I loved it so much we bought two! I have traveled a great deal with my car and the fuel economy is awesome! The commute is very comfortable and the 4 cylinder is zippy even up hills. I have over 90k miles and have had to put very little in the way of $$$ into this car. I bought both my Camry's certified used less than a year old.

Good third car

I love this car. For a 10 year old car it is has held up very well. It runs beautifully and is very comfortable. The trunk is enormous. The inside is very roomy.

this was my first car i still own it i didnt trade it in i kept because its such a great car i got tyhe V6 with the upgrade pack had everything except a sunroof at first i thought a camry had no power and wasnt all that but i got behind the wheel and had a drive it was too good i did buy it used it wasnt certified but guess what its still running and it flys lots of power it has over 100K miles and ive had my moneys worth out of it and guess what the value held up too good i was offered about half of what i paid for after all these miles and it shows how it held up its value. I LOVE MY CAMRY

While I have only 61,000 miles on my Camry, I have done only routine maintenance until a month ago. At that time I had work on the exhaust system which I chalk up to Michigan winters and salt. The local rodent population also likes my car: found 2 nests and some nuts in the air intake and air filter. I don't expect this to recur; in the winter the mice live in my attic.

This is a great car for anyone to learn how to drive, like myself. I couldn't have picked a better car to start my driving carrer on. The easy handling is matched by the great comfort of the interior. It feels as though the driver is still within his comfortable bed which puts him at ease as he learns to drive. Although this is a very simple car to understand, it also has the feel of a very complex car. The sound system is incredible. It makes one feel as though everyone can only hear them and they control the road. With this cars easy handling, comfortable interior and great features including the sound system, i could not jave imagined myself in any other car for my first driving lessons.

This is the best car my wife and me have ever owned. The back seat is big enough for 2 car seats and has enough room for an 8 year old to sit in between them. We have had no trouble with this car what-so-ever. We have the V6 and we just turned 100k on it! It still gets 26mpg on the highway and 22mpg in town. Good job toyota!!!!

The Most Perfect Boring Car You Will Ever Own

by from Sacramento, CA on September 3, 2013

I purchased my 2002 Toyota Camry LE V6 three and a half years ago with only 20,000 miles on it (very low miles for an 8 year old vehicle) and could not be happier. It now has 70,000 miles on it and the only thing that has needed to be replaced is the battery and tires. I have a round trip commute of 100 miles a day for work and usually average about 29 miles per gallon, even with the V6. The car is extremely quiet and the engine runs so smoothly that I sometimes have to look at the tachometer to make sure the car is on. Lots of room inside for 5 people and the trunk is enormous. Visibility is excellent and all controls are easy to use. It is also the most boring transportation appliance you can ever own. Ride is very soft and comfortable, but handling is horrible. Lots of body lean and no fun to drive at all. If you are looking for a reliable and comfortable sedan, the Camry is an excellent choice. However, if you want to enjoy the driving experience, not a good choice.

o2 Camry XLE-Most Reliable Car I've Owned

I bought my Camry in 8-2001 because I needed to drive far away and my 95 Camry had 270,000 miles on it. So I went to the Toyota Dealership with my 13 year old son and bought a new Camry while my husband was in California on business. It's been driven out of state for soccer tournaments 10 times in the past. It's been the best Camry that I've ever owned. I have 261,000 miles on it now and it's still going good. Of course I've had some replacement parts done by my son mostly. Just minor things that start going bad with cars with lots of miles on them. Most of the miles are highway ones. I love my Camry's!!!!!!! Plan to buy another one in 2-3 years. My oldest son wants me to buy a Honda Accord next because he worked as a mechanic at a Honda Dealership and I said NO! I don't like Honda's! Camry's are the best!!!!

Old Taxi Cab

I bought a 2002 XLE V6 for $600. It's fully loaded with every available option and everything works except the driver side seat heater. It is an old taxi cab, it has 256,000 miles on it. Engine seems fine. I have to replace two front wheel bearings and the starter. It runs fine, it's quiet and has plenty of power left. No burning or leaking oil, and it's holding all other fluids as well. Well worth $600. I also need to change the timing belt because it's 150,000 miles over due. I imagine once I replace the timing belt and wheel bearings that I could drive this car long distances with no worries.
