  • New to the board, but being owner of 2000 Sienna obviously find the info important. I have had no problems with my wifes van in our 23k miles, and have had the oil changed by dealer 4 times since new. I usually do my oil changes myself, but wanted t…
  • I own a 2002 Camry XLE (4cyl); I previously owned a 2000 Sienna and now have an '04 Sienna XLE AWD. I believe the vans will allways be noiser; my Camry is very quite (even with the 4 cyl), more so than either Sienna. So if you are comparing an Accor…
  • Package 14 has a power moonroof and 6 disc cd changer, with 16" wheels/tires. Package 12 has 17" wheels/tires, but no moonroof and single CD.
  • How do those of you with Sunroofs like them? It looks fairly large in a picture of a Limited I have seen. Ordered an XLE with package #14 (Sunroof), vs. Package #12. Gave up the 17" wheels/tires, and gained the 6cd changer plus the 'roof. Also, what…
  • In response to denatz, the display on my 4cyl XLE has been overly optimistic in my first year of ownership. Recently, showing 23.6MPG, in reality this is 2-3 MPG more than I am actually measuring between fill-ups. I am averaging 19.5 to 21.5 MPG, in…
  • My '02 XLE also came with the Bridgestones. While I am a Michelin advocate, the Bridgestones (Potenza RE92) are very comfortable and smooth, and handle acceptably. As far as wear, I only have 9k miles on my car in first year, and I do not have any e…
  • Went to check the filter location last week on my '02 4cyl XLE, but a quick search has not yet uncovered the spot! Granted, it has been cold here in NY lately, and I did not spend too much time on the ground of my unheated garage. But if someone can…
  • gregmartinez: Unfortunately I cannot help you on the flutter, I do not have a mask on my Camry. But I was wondering: are you happy with the looks? My car is Lunar Mist, and with trips to mountains/wooded areas this summer, bugs/debris usually find t…
  • fredvh, I have driven both an automatic and 5 speed 4cyl/LE, and own a 4cyl/XLE. The XLE has slightly crisper handling, but just as smooth a ride as the LE, in my experience. I have the Bridgestone tires (not my first choice), the LE's I drove had t…
  • mike366- I have a Sienna, with the same engine. Recommends premium fuel to achieve highest power output, I believe the engine timing is adjusted with lower octane gas to reduce engine knock, but this will reduce power output. So it is not necessary,…
  • My XLE/4 cyl arrived today, and I was wondering what brand of tires others have received. I have asked dealer to check and let me know what is on the car. I have seen Michelin and Bridgestone on the 16" XLE's with alum wheels. Are these the only bra…
  • tiem: just purchased LE 5 speed, with ABS and mats, for $18022 plus tax. I added keyless for $200. I believe this is about $150 under invoice. You probably cannot get this type of deal with an automatic. I am in NY.
  • Well, I did leave out some important info. The mileage is 43k, it is a DE model (no power). As far as condition, it is really like new. I am the original owner, and there have been no accidents. I have someone interested at $6295, including the B/B …
  • What do you guys think I should be getting for my Mitsu, private sale? I have had it in paper for $6495, only a couple of lookers. Sticks are hard to sell. I have an extended b/b warranty to 72k, but nobody seems to care (one young kid was more co…
  • Bill, thanks for the info on my Galant. The ext warranty is transferable for $100. I honestly did not know I could cancel it and get a refund, there is 41 months and 37k miles left on it. I will call warranty company tommorow and see what kind of re…
  • Looking to sell my 97 Galant DE 5 speed on my own, I am sure the dealer would give me a pittance for it. And it is a shame, since the stick is great to drive (better than auto), car is excellent, I am original, and it has 34k miles on clock. And, a …
  • This is after the fact, but I am picking a '94 T-Bird for my son in HS. 112k miles, V-8, all power, moonroof, (no leather) excellent condition in/out. I know the man selling it (work associate), he takes care of his cars (Vette for summer, etc...). …
  • My '02 XLE 4cyl does the same, when put into drive or reverse first thing in morning. It does not concern me (as it is not the transmission in my opinion), it does sound like the brakes as your dealer suggested.
  • Dealer has ordered new upper front strut mounts. I do not have the paperwork in front of me but I believe it is a bushing. Hear rattle/knocking when going over medium bumps, really cannot tell if it is from front or rear, but definitely under car on…
  • Looking to see if any owners have experienced this problem with their Camry's: when braking fairly hard, as you come to a stop engine will idle/vibrate rough for a second or so, than get smoother. But not smooth enough, in my opinion. It is not the …
  • 2002camry: thanks for the info on your rattle. I would like to investigate this solution on my car, as well. Do you know exactly what the dealer did to the passenger seat? Possibly it is something I can fix on my own. Thanks!
  • '02 XLE/4 has rattle that is coming from passenger side, toward the rear (I have not been able to isolate it). Dealer originally ordered front upper strut mounts (told they were "upgraded" ones), but after leaving car they concluded it was only some…
  • Spent week shopping for LE with UN,TO,EF. Best deal is 24967 + tax (about 8% above invoice of 23063). This dealer also giving me most for trade in (taxes will be 1069). Other prices were 24,966 but quite a bit less for trade, and 25,699, couple hund…
  • Has anyone ordered the Michelin X-One tire upgrade? I have seen this listed on another site as a $450 or $470 option (5 tires). Not crazy about Firestones that come standard. May be purchasing this weekend, any feedback would be appreciated.
  • As long as you are willing to pay MSRP plus $1200, you can have immediate delivery. No one else in the area has any with options, my order is in for XLE FWD with #14, for $800 under MSRP (best deal I could get in the area). 8-10 weeks delivery.
  • muulk, We bought from Competition Toyota in Middle Island. Best combo of purchase price (lowest) and trade in price (highest). Also, they have a very good selection. The highest price I was quoted was from Sunrise Toyota, 2nd lowest from Smithtown T…
