problem #1

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1 miles
Brakes(ABS) are mushy and pedal travels so far down I feel it takes a longer time to stop the car. I took it back to the dealer shortly after purchase but was told this was normal with the 2002's Camry. They adjusted the brakes but it made no difference. I took other 2002 Camry's out for a test drive only to find there brakes the same. I have driven several toyato's over the years and never had brakes like the 2002 Camry. I can't afford to sell the car ao would like the problem solved as I feel this will probaly cause an accident in the future. Thanks Mr. Wagner.
