Good Sporty car
By rscarawa on
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.
