  • I do think the parking brakes to be tied into the rear calipers. I suspected the service shop considered the parking brake to be part of the problem since they left it so loosely set. i.e. the brakes didn't engage until the lever was at the end of…
  • My '02 Camry LE has 4-wheel ABS disc brakes. At 400 miles my son-in-law noticed ridges forming on the back rotors and suggested the pattern looked like a problem in the making. So at 1400 miles the condition clearly had not improved and both of t…
  • Hmmmm. Well no one can say you're not trying but I'm sure that IF they don't find buyers at THEIR price then they will show some interest in your offer. Especially if they have not moved them as the end of the month approaches I expect they shou…
  • IF you take them that offer (the one your Mom ran out) and they don't show any interest then they must think that they can get more for it. You might FAX the offer to dealers that are convenient ... call them up to get their FAX number and tell t…
  • I think you might want to crank your numbers into Edmunds' pricing guide and see what the invoice and incentives/rebates do for you in your area. It looks like you have all the options and other details. Their number were "right on" for me back …
  • I notice Edmunds is showing Customer Cash incentives for CE models and Dealer Cash incentives separately for other Camry models. Is the "Customer Cash incentive" money that is sent to the customer from the factory after a sale? Is .."Dealer Cash…
  • If you wanted 4-wheel disk brakes on a 2001 Camry then you would have had to have opted for the V6 in at least the LE version. The Maxima's engine is "premium fuel only" from the specs I've read. I'm wondering if the increased horsepower in the…
  • I know the shopping around can be frustrating but I thought the cars that showed up at the dealers were "preferenced" by the dealership prior to production. I guess the dealers though are influenced by the "marketing higher-ups". If you know exact…
  • Hmmm, lots of padding and three labels on underside of hood. One was about the type of plugs to use. Another was a type of diagram/layout. Third was tune up specifications info. Basically what does this label look like? When the car was released…
  • Thanks again! Just got back from the shop and the repair ticket listed the reprogramming of the ECU using their internal reference to the TSB. I had printed out the Edmund's notice and combined it with part of your message. Don't know how one v…
  • The last time I asked (last winter) I got " ... they all do that ... even my 2000 LE V6 does it" But later I got to thinking, didn't the 02's came out with a completly redesigned transmission? This is another one I'll ask about to see if there…
  • Thanks for going further on this! My service manager is going to call me when my replacement remote mirror comes in ... they have to paint (or order) them for the color match. Now I'll have the info to refer him to. Basically they seem to w…
  • cjts, Today I asked the service rep about the TSB for reprogramming the ECU to clear up the vibrating annoyance at 38-40 mph on my LE. He was ordering a replacement remote mirror for me and said that he would pull up all the TSB's available for …
  • Re: ECU programming I'll see if I can get some attention to the ECU reprogramming. The last inquiry at the service department on the "initial Clunk" phenomena got me a reply of "They all do it ... even my 2000 Camry does it". Later I got to thi…
  • Checking online at the Alldata site: http://www.alldata.com/TSB/59/025967A8.html does not turn up the TSB's mentioned by cjts in Msg #4415 as EG2006 or EG-017-02. Bummer! This Alldata list on TSB/Recalls may not be up to date. Does a…
  • Thanks for the info. I've got to have the service dept to fix the passenger side remote mirror. It's taken to intermittent mode on the in-out movements after a few adjustments. It must be an overheating servo motor or however they drive the mirro…
  • Did anyone who has gotten their LE V6's reprogrammed notice if the "fix" took care of the initial transmission "clunk". (Ref Msg #4415 as EG2006 or EG-017-02) That's the cold weather transmission problem that occurs when initially shifting from …
  • But I would really expect it to unless the unit had an MP3 decoding (or uncompressing) circuit
  • My JBL system doesn't play the MP3's. There is no audio. But I would really expect it to unless the unit had an MP3 decoding (or uncompressing) circuit.
  • and others speak of the smell that we get on occasion from our Camry's. We just got back from our first trip out on the highway at 4000 OD miles. On four occasions, each time after a burst of passing speed to move around slower traffic, we notic…
  • Seems the current thinking is to change the oil in the new 2002 models every 3000 miles. This sludge issue apparently is pressing owners to act on the cautious side. I just got my first oil and filter change at about 1,985 miles at the dealer. …
  • My '02 LE V6 was US made (surely the KY plant). It doesn't have the traction control ... and I don't notice any abrupt downshifts. But I do wonder if what I'm noticing has to do with the "intelligent" mode having a "no-so-intelligent" phase to g…
  • Has anyone mentioned or noticed an initial harshness in shifting from park to drive (or reverse for backing out). I'm hearing something like a "clunk" sound. On startup the idle is high, perhaps around 1500 rpm and drops back as it warms up. If…
  • My salesman did mention the convenient container compartment when I picked up our LE last week. Was showing it off to the wife ... who wasn't impressed with my trying to stash a couple of one liter Pepsi bottles. Sigh ... after all these years of…
  • Suppose felix buckels up the groceries to get rid of the confounded sensitive alarm. If someone taps her car enough to set off the air bag protection is that going to splatter the milk that's now buckeled in safely all over the car? Something …
  • includes a trunk release function that is implemented with a third button on the remote. You press the trunk release button and hold it for approximately one second.
  • Hey, the guys are right about the exhaust system hanging a bit low. It doesn't take much of an extra load in our '02 LE for the tail pipe to drag when backing out of our driveway(or pulling in). Will have to check more closely to see if I can det…
  • that bag! Can you imagine the mess you would have if you slammed on the brakes and that milk went all over. Sorry, couldn't resist. :-)
  • there are four modes for the door locking if you include "no automatic locking" (think I got this right). You might want to take a look at a manual and those modes to decide which you want since your car was delivered with the default setting. B…
  • I think the usual designation is I4 as in "In line" four.
  • is right about letting the ecconomy take it's course. Surely no one wants to see these large segments of industry suffer in the current ecconomic disturbance. So lets see how it might play out in the ecconomy ... supply and demand. Toyota dumps …
  • are standand on the V6 ... I4's will have rear drum according to Toyota specs. Hate to followup my own posts but LE specs on Toyota's Web page: "Brakes Power-assisted ventilated front disc/rear drum (power-assisted ventilated front, solid rear d…
  • I 'll have to drop by my local dealers and see what's on the lots. Since the the I4's come in 4-wheel disk brakes (and a timing chain, no less) then perhaps I could get interested in the LE with either engine. But thanks to all for responding. …
  • I think it was Mackabee who posted the production schedule mix for the Camry. That early mix didn't allow for LE's with the V6 engine. LE's with I4's, yes but V6's were scheduled only for some XLE's and I guess some SE's. Rawie4me has seen on…
  • So far I've not been able to "build my own Toyota" LE V6 in my area using the Web pages at Toyota.com. The early production schedule (given in percentages) skipped over the LE V6's a few weeks ago. Has anyone seen an LE V6 in their area or has a…
  • But thanks for the "build your own" tip. Also noted that if you select SE V6 you MUST take the moonroof option for now. The boss would never go for that! Any rumors as to when we might expect the LE V6's? I'm thinking that to get this in Sup…
  • the Fair Market Value in Edmunds pricing guide? The 2001 pricing numbers are still in place as far as I know. You can plug in the options for your particular LE and also get a handle on the dealer incentives or customer cash back allowances. Perh…
  • Did you run you list through KBB or are you using '01 prices as a guide? Also you'll have to consider Destination, TDA, Taxes, Documentation. What have I left out? Hope Edmunds pricing guide gets up soon. Those "gottchas" can queer a deal in a …
  • At last someone has posted the 2002 pricing info with options! I've picked out my LE w/options .... now if I can just find a dealer. :-) I think the piecemeal figures that have been thrown out have created more confusion than answers to the p…
  • There is also an "ignitor" module perhaps that could have gone out. This happened to me on my '85 years ago. On another car last year ... you don't want to hear this ... the computer died! On that vehicle I replaced it with a rebuilt unit by Py…
