Solara V-6 Coupe sails
By Chynadog on


2001 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I have a fully loaded coupe which would be an SLE if not for the manual transmission. The manual is a bit touchy in the lower gears and sometimes awkward. However, it begs to be accelerated and sails at highway speeds. It is quite comfortable on long trips. I have taken it on 3,500 mile round trips on a few occasions and this car is a dream on the freeway. The leather seats are a must, as are the v-6 engine and detailed security and safety features. If I had to do it over again, I might buy the automatic instead. This car is a classy and sporty Camry.

Best Features

The car is sleek and moves like a dream. I enjoy the prestige of the Solara and it does get a lot of looks. It feels very solid...comparable to a Trans Am I once had. However, the Solara is more classy and does not break down like the Pontiac frequently did.

Worst Features

The manual transmission on the v-6 is no longer an option on the newer models. Too bad...as this thing begs to fly through the gears. However, the manual is awkward and sometimes a pain in the you know what at lower gears. The paint chips very easily, but the car cleans up well.
