2002 Toyota Camry LE 2.4 from North America
A true economy car for a high price
The engine vibrates slightly when coming to a stop, as the transmission downshifts.
The plastic looks cheap.
The car feels like an overgrown Neon.
The 4 cylinder engine lacks power.
This car is seriously slow, and I'm not impressed by it's level of fit and finish. A Hyundai Sonata's fit and finish is much better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have one, and consider it a superb vehicle.
The engine is smooth at all running speeds. The slight shudder at idle is normal in a 4 cylinder this size, once above idle the balance shafts make it a smooth runner.
Inside you cannot tell it is a 4. The noise is low and the performance is excellent - unless you drag race at stop signs.
I find it roomy, comfortable and well designed. I have had the '02 Camry LE for 18 months. I have not had to return to the dealer for any issues.
To close, I am very satisfied with my '02 purchase.

My Mother, when she was alive, loved Toyota Camrys. This was her 4th one before she passed away from cancer in July of 2004. The 2002 Toyota Camry LE can't be beat! Great gas mileage, plenty of room and very dependable.
I'm glad I bought her car. It was a smart buy.

If you were looking for power, you should have purchased a V6... that's your own fault - NOT Toyota's.
