Good Sporty car

Vehicle2001 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI purchase this V6 5speed car about 6 months ago and have been very happy with it. It is a roomy 2 door coupe with similiar room to the camry. The engine is reasonably powerful and the interior rid is quiet. I have the JBL radio. It does pretty good but some songs seem to be unbalanced. The suspension is not sporty. It is very soft and there is much body roll. The clutch has a very smooth feel and the gears shift quickly. Gas mileage is 25 city and 31 hwy I added the TRD struts, springs and swaybar to improve the handling of the car. This makes the Solara handle like a much smaller car. If you like the small car feel, this is the way to go.
Best FeaturesRadio antenna in window, DLR, manual transmission.
Worst FeaturesThe wipers could use a one-wipe mode. Keyless entry does not open trunk. 6 speed transmission needed to keep up with Acura/Honda. Better gear ratios would improve acceleration and gas mileage. Better stock suspension.
