Fuel economy & engine performance of Toyota Camry 2002

The Toyota Camry 2002 comes with two kinds of engines to meet the needs of drivers. There is the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder double overhead cam engine, and the 24 valve 3 liter V6 engine (which puts out more horsepower than the former). The 4 cylinder engine also tends to save more fuel at 29 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 mpg in the city.

This is where it beats the V6. The 3 liter V6 has a rating of 26 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the city. So if you are looking for a car that can go a long way before you top up fuel, then the 4-cylinder engine is the best bet, while the V6 only provide more speed.

Exterior and interior of Toyota Camry 2002

The Toyota Camry 2002 generally looks sporty regardless of the trim level. Though the SE is the sportier one. You enjoy firm suspensions that allow you to drive smoothly off road and daytime running lights. There's also a much larger wheelbase than previous generations which gives the car more balance and traction. It is also known as tiny light by some people due to how the headlights look, it also has great grille. Coming to the interior, the car is spacious - which is quite expected of a Toyota Camry car.

There are also airbags installed, air conditioning, DVD player and bespoke sound system. The trunk is over 16 feet in volume which will allow you to carry a lot of loads if you want to. The steering wheel is light and easy to handle, and if you have kids, there are locks to prevent them from going off when the car is in motion. The only bad side is the lack of anti-lock brakes but all in all its a safe ride.

Pros and cons of the Toyota Camry 2002

There are a lot of advantages of the Toyota Camry 2002. It's spacious and fuel efficient, which is what a lot of Nigerians look out for when going to purchase a car. The 4 cylinder engine comes with a timing chain so you don't have to worry about changing it soon. The vehicle does well off-road and easy to maintain.

But we won't ignore the cons.

Firstly is the use of timing belt in the V6 engine. This means you have to change it after some thousands of miles. There's also the non availability of the anti-lock brakes, which means you have to be extra careful. Other problems include faulty suspensions, bad rear struts and frequent oil leaks. But they can all be fixed with a few thousands of naira. So it's still an ideal car.

How to buy and maintain used Toyota Camry 2002

There are 3 major things to look out for when buying used Toyota Camry 2002. First, the noises. It normally doesn't have road or engine noises, so any coming from there is a sign that you have to stay away from the car. Blue or white smoke is another bad sign. Finally, check for leaks. If the vehicle is void of these 3, you have nothing to worry about.

After buying the car, maintaining it should not be a problem. Simply ensure fluids are always topped up, the timing belt for the V6 is changed after 90,000 miles, the oxygen sensor and brakes are fixed when they are bad.
