Review of the 2001 Toyota Camry Solara

  • A Camry with two fewer doors and possibly a foldable roof. There are worse things to drive.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy cabin, convertible version, reliable Camry genes, delectable V6.

  • Cons

    Expensive, Camry name doesn't inspire visions of excitement, no manual offered with SLE trim.

    Top-level SLE models can be equipped with a new JBL audio system, so long as you order leather upholstery. Option package fiddling makes…

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased with 112500 miles...no problems and I love the car. Smooth driving, high performance and handles great in the rain. Love having the top down and enjoying the fresh air. Can't explain why I waited so long to consider a convertible! Best decision ever made. Don't have a garage, but have purchased a cover for the winter months when I won't be using it. Have found 2 new (2008) models in Virginia but Toyota has now stopped building Solara. Too bad....I might want to a newer one in next couple of years. Best convertible on the market.

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

My Solara conv. has been the perfect 'crisis' vehicle for a family guy that wants to cruise, enjoy the fresh air, and still have the ability to take company along. The design draws compliments, the performance is adequate, and the comfort is outstanding. It could use a little more structural support and better suspension components, but other than that no real complaints. The top has proven VERY reliable and sound for a seven year old cloth top, and I have only treated it(water proofing)and had it retightened twice for minimal cost. So far reliability has been outstanding and I just turned 90,000.

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I looked for a year for a used Solara convertible and I'm glad I waited. I have the 6-cyl and it drives like a sportscar. I have only done regular maintenance (did the 90K mi service), as it has needed nothing else. I plan to drive this car until it falls to pieces, which could be 10 more years. Comfort is great for the driver and passenger, the back seat passengers have complained a bit. And, of course, it's a bit noisy on the highway with the top up, just not completely airtight but who cares?

What's New for 2001

Top-level SLE models can be equipped with a new JBL audio system, so long as you order leather upholstery. Option package fiddling makes it easier to equip a Solara the way you like. The anti-theft and engine immobilizer system is restricted to SLEs, while SEs now come standard with a six-speaker cassette stereo. Twilight Blue Pearl is replaced by Indigo Ink as an exterior color.
