1999 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe


Review

What a wonderful car! I bought a 99' SLE with 60K and in 2 years i have had no problems, it now has 140K and the only thing i have done is change the oil every 3k and the brakes once. I didnt even bother with the timing belt. No problems!!! The check engine light is on and its because of the back oxygen sensor heater, there are like 6 banks and one is bad, but the thing is i probably get better gas mileage because of it. Any how its a wonderful car! Toyota ROCKS!


Best Features

V6, sunroof, cd/tape player


Worst Features

better gas mileage. mine gets only 23mpg

1999 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I have enjoyed this car so much and would keep it if I wasn't having my first child. My husband even loved driving it b/c of the handling and performance.


Best Features

Two tone interior colors and outside design. I have a 1999 model.


Worst Features

of course, even better gas milage, although, it's really not bad for a V6

1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my 1999 Solara in April of
2003 and haven't had any major problems
with it. I've seen a lot of different
reviews on here and some are accurate
whereas others I can't understand. The
interior is pretty straight forward,
don't expect some crazy/flashy foreign
interior. The ride is very smooth and
it has decent power, but nothing huge
compared to other coupe's. I have had
issues with the struts, but I'm from
Michigan. We have the worst roads in
the entire country! Fuel economy is
average, not as good as I expected from
a Toyota, but overall I've been VERY
happy with my purchase. I have yet to
fix a single thing on the car and I'm
approaching 76,000 miles on it.


Best Features

I found it to handle very smooth. Brakes are not the greatest, but I am a late braker and some of the fault may be my own. Good acceleration, comfortable seats (and I am a bigger guy, 6'-1", 260lbs).


Worst Features

Better stock radio, I installed an Alpine CD player immediately. Improvments on the struts, they do sound very clunky and sound busted a lot of the time. The newer models have a larger engine which is nice, the car has decent power, but nothing compared to models in the same class.

1999 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I'm currently at 90,000 miles. It
runs like new. Very reliable car.
I've also had minor interior problems
such as driverside visor mirror/light
fell out. The coin tray has been
replaced. Toyota Dealer replaced
these and my front brakes at around
50,000 for some unpublished
recall/problem with the breaks (all no
charge). I just had to replace the
battery for 1st time. I am on 3rd set
of tires.


Best Features

Nice ride, very attractive on the inside (esp. new)


Worst Features

Factory JBL sound system is decent but have had some problems with reception in certain areas/conditions (no antenna) Actually had radio replaced by dealer (no charge!) before understood the problem. CD DOES skip a lot. Recently, I am getting some squeaking from the seats.
