Review of the 2002 Toyota Camry Solara

  • Stuck on the old Camry platform, the Solara coupe offers little when compared to all-new '02 Camry and its modern features, unless you want a convertible.

  • 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.

  • What's New for 2002

    More power is in store from a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. On the outside, Toyota has added a redesigned front grille and bumper, new headlights and taillights and a bolder rear bumper. A new appearance package (only available on the SE Coupe) includes alloy center caps for the wheels, a three-spoke perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, black trim and Black Pearl emblems. Rounding out the changes are standard daytime running lights, optional seat heaters (coupes only) and a trunk-opener function for the keyless remote.

Mid life crisis averted

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

For years I've wanted a convertible. This is my 3rd Toyota.This is a great car and fun to drive. The only problem I have had is the convertible top. It seems to catch on the right rear side often. This causes the "lip" behind the back seat to tear. Other than that, no problems.
