2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #8

Aug 182010

Camry 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


I have purchased Toyotas since 1982 - two of them every couple of years. I am the most loyal customer in the world but no more. After learning that my last set of tires (80,000 mile Toyos) were cupped with only 6,000 gentle miles on them, I give up. I am thinking of going with VW for my next car. Toyota has really blown it.

Camry LE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

Since the car was new (now 65,000 miles) it has had a problem I can only describe as a mild fight going on with the front tires. It has steadily increased to a "wump, wump, wump..." sound over time. It has gotten progressively worse. Dealer replaced all tires at 8k miles. Since then have had two more sets of tires. Now, relatively new tires have severe cupping on the inside. The car makes a ridiculous amount of noise in the front end. Also, I believe that this has caused incessant noise from the dashboard. This is ridiculous. Most expensive car I've owned. Dealer has pretty much blown me off each time after repair. I feel that Toyota isn't taking the problem seriously. Sad to say that this is likely my last Toyota.

Same problem with premature tire wear. Tire dealer says talk to somebody about alignment/struts/camber. Alignment place says the alignment is fine. But they did check the camber. They tell me that factory setting is -.085, I understand "0" setting to be straight up and down, perfectly perpendicular to the road. .085 could cause the uneven wear on the inside edge of tires. I am going to Toyota dealer to discuss/complain next week.

Can you believe this.... I just came from the dealership and they want me to replace all tires. Of course, all regular service work (including tire rotation) on my 2002 Camry LE was done by the same dealership. They don't see anything wrong in replacing the actual Michelin tyres after 18,000 miles with new Toyo tyres that are rated for 80,000 miles... it's just normal for them.

A question for TOYOTA: is this normal for you too? The owners don't appreciate this!

Camry LE

  • 18,000 miles

I'm experiencing the same problem as the other owner that wrote in. I'm changing the tires for the second time. (first time at 18K and again at 40K). We've kept the tires rotated, but for some reason the front tires are wearing HARD!!! All of the driving is under normal highway conditions, and the car is well maintained. To make things worse, the wear was so different from front to back that the tire dealer won't honor the tire warranty, says there is no way that I have kept the tires rotated. What gives??? I'm wondering if this is a design problem related to the weight distribution of the car?? I'm thinking of selling it and buying something else, much cheaper to maintain!!!

Camry LE

  • 23,000 miles

The tires on this Camry were rotated at 6000 miles again at 14000 miles and now at 23000 miles had to be replaced. This is not due to abuse and is under normal conditions. I drove a 1994 Cutlass Supreme since 1994 putting 136000 miles on this vehicle on the same roads as this Camry is being used and the Cutlass had only three sets of tires put on this car since 1994. My question to Toyota is passing the gas pumps and maintance bills is now going to go into Goodyears back pocket? I am very disappointed in this aspect of the Camry.
