How Efficient Rugged And Reliable Camry 2002 (big Daddy) V6 Engine Is? by desperatem(m): 10:13am On Mar 23, 2015
Please I need help in deciding whether to go for a camry big 2002 with a V6 engine. I saw a particular 2002 big daddy and it has all i want in a car. The only downside is that the car has a V6 engine and i heard V6 engine is bad, expensive to maintain, consumes a lot of fuel most especially in Honda accord 2003-2005 cars (EOD). Please how true is it because I am in love with that particular Camry 2002 (big daddy) i saw. Car gurus, your contributions would be appriciated. Thank you

Run away from any mechanic that discourages you from buying a V6. He has no business hold spanners. A V6 engine is rugged, durable and offers you a better performance in handling but with a decreased fuel economy. Apart from fuel economy, the difference in spare parts is insignificant. Get a competent mechanic to help you inspect the car, if it meets your specifications for a car, please, go ahead and pay & enjoy your driving experience.


Most of our mechanics learnt their work using 404 & 504 Peugeot, Mercedez Benz 190 etc and have refused to update their knowledge. The first thing they do to your car is to remove your Thermostat and connect your fan directly. Avoid them at all cost.

Read the owners' manual, ensure you service with the required engine oil, quality filter and recommended ATF.

Goodluck.

Don't mind him, Am using EOD V6 2004 model, mine doesn't consume fuel, I used N1500 fuel from egbeda to oshodi to and fro with A/C, I faced heavy traffic on my way back home in the evening and I got some fuel left, which I used from egbeda to igando with A/C to and fro the following day before topping it. V6 engine is so sweet to drive, u can not compare four plugs with V6. Comparing the two is like comparing LCD TV with 3D TV.
