So Far So Good
By Jeffry on
Vehicle1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe
ReviewI spent over a year trying to replace a
1987 Audi 5000 Quattro for a reaonable
cost and this is what I came up with.
Most any other car I could afford had
low frequency road noise rumbles which
I can't stand. I'm 40-something but
single and work in entertainment, so
style is important. The Solara is a not-
a-family car with enough room for 3
hotties in the back seat and a good
sound system. To be called a "fly ride"
by 20-something starlets and still
attractive to middle age executive
types of both sexes is a neat hat
trick. Looks like a Lexus at a fraction
of the price. 140 mph speedometers on
cars that will never go that fast are
Best FeaturesVery Quiet, very good sound system. Reputation of perfect Camry reliablilty but handles much better. 30+ mpg highway (4 cyl auto) is appreciated as is the overdrive lockout mode for better performance when needed. Good visibility for a 2 door coupe. Good night lighting inside and out.
Worst FeaturesThrottle position is somehow odd - steering wheel doesn't telescope which would help. Steering is too twitchy at high speed, but the turning circle is HUGE. Locking system logic defies logic and doesn't unlock the trunk.
