I answered this already in "problems and solutions." Access is behind the glove compartment, at least in 2002-06 Camry sedans. See your owner's manual.
It's behind the glove compartment in the 2002-06 Camry sedan. I assume it'll be in the same place in the 2000 Solara. See you owner's manual for how to get to it. It is an easy procedure.
I must admit I haven't read earlier threads re: the Solara BUT looking at this one gives me flashbacks of the reason i traded my beautiful red 1999 Solara so soon (2003 I purchased a camry). I had to replace all 4 tires on my Solara at 30,000 miles because of the unusual wear on the tread. I had my tires rotated a couple of times before that and each time ... Read More
Do other Toyota models (with the V6 engine) have the same transmission/hesitation problem as the SE Camry? Highlander? Sienna? Solara? Tacoma truck? WHY WAS THIS ANNOYING PROBLEM NEVER MENTIONED BY ALL THE AUTO MAGAZINE WRITERS? HOW COULD THEY NOT FEEL IT?! I am already thinking about trading my '05 Camry. Or maybe I will wait, and see if Toyota can get this defect fixed in the '07 model. And I think ... Read More
Unfortunately, the engines are still sludging, just haven't read about it a lot on Edmunds. It is the 1997 - 2002 models covered under the sludge policy, but I have read reports of a couple 2003's recently. Can't recall which Toyota model, tho, as this covers the Camry, Avalon, Solara, Sienna, Highlander, Celica and the Lexus RX300/ES300
Bought my new 2002 Solara SE 2.4 in the summer of 2003 and paid CAD $26275 - List was $28175 and $1025 freight /PDI for a total of $29200. Toyota has a program in Canada (Access Toyota) like Saturn does - they tell you what to pay and you accept it, or you don't get it. Couple of months earlier I watched a guy $29200 for a 2003 which is the ... Read More
What do you mean all related to year 2000 model? Some recall is for 1997, some for 1998, 199,2000, 2001 and 2002. Also only 3 recalls I can identified associated with Solara and some are with Camry/Avalon. I can't confirm does all the problem associate with Camry only or cross all the models. We need to be carefully verify these issues. Or it will be like link one most troublesome model ... Read More
About 3 percent of Toyotas engines in Camry, Solara, Lexus RS300, Sienna and a few other models had a problem with sludge when following the maintenance outlined in the manual, so stick to the 3,000 mile oil change, although, Toyota motor Corp should have notified you of their Special Policy Adjustment, 8 years from date of purchase, unlimited milage if the owner can show "reasonable" maintenance. The SPA covered the model ... Read More
The Camry sedan alone is #1 in sales over both the Accord sedan and coupe. Camry was 2002's top selling car, but I don't recall the difference in sales between it and the Accord. I think the Solara's sales would just add to the Camry's lead over the Accord.
2004 Toyota Camry Solara: New model introduced in spring 2003 with mechanical changes in line with the redesigned 2002 Camry sedan. We hear it is a proper notchback coupe, not a fastback like first-generation car. thats about all i could find on internet
Squinty - Good luck with this. Did U ever try posting this prob onto the Camryman.Org site? And if anyone wonders why WebG bought his car, here's the reason, as per his own words: "#1783 of 2337 Lemons abound... by webguyster United States of America Apr 29, 2002 (02:24 pm) silversolara, I did not do too much shopping for the car. I went to Acura, I could not get a saleman ... Read More
The 2002 Camry LE is a 4 banger, no?W/O the frills of the older design Solara, like stra-foam in every crevice. Cigarette lighter and ashtry, please! Who uses the ashtry anyway. I am constantly dodging flying lit cigarettes, especially at rush hour!?! Ash tray is probably one of those parts Toyota cut back on, to make the car with half of the number of parts as their previous, better rated models. ... Read More
While finding water inside my car after hosing it down,I went to 2 toyota service depts.They informed me that since the solara has no window frames water will always enter the cabin when aimed at the top of the door windows under the black roof trim.A DSM also informed me the all new solara will be coming out in 2004.My girl just bought the 2002 Camry LE and in our amazment ...

Today, I called my local Toyota dealer's customer relations manager and got a copy of a letter sent from Toyota to its dealers in Apr. 02, stating they have enhanced the terms of their SPA. Per the letter: "Effective immediately, Toyota announces a Customer Support Program which will cover the cost of repairs on 5S-FE amd 1MZ-FE engines necessary due to oil gelling for 8 years, unlimited miles. This action removes ... Read More
The word is that the 2003 Solara will be the same as the 2002. Toyota supposedly has a five-year product lifecycle. It has been said that the 2004 Solara will be all new and will be released mid-year 2003. Unless things have changed since I heard this info, you will have to wait at least a year-and-a-half for a redesigned Solara. I just bought one, and it has improvements that are ... Read More
If the new Solara has the same interior as the 2002 Camry, than I'd definately wait! I took a look at the new Camry the other day. Wow! The leather seats seem to provide much more support and are firmer, plus you don't slide off them! The radio looks much more sleek, not bulky like my current Solara. The fake wood actually looks like real wood, as opposed to the fake ... Read More
Toyota finally fixed something under warrenty!!! They replaced my visor, and mirror!!! Only after going through the discussion, "Did you pay for the part yet???" I just replied,"What is covered under the Bumper to Bumper Warrenty? Everything that breaks in this car is never under warrenty!" Lucky for me, there were 3 other grumpy people with similar warrenty issues, and I got it replaced under warrenty. The service advisor thought I ... Read More
The new, 2002 Camry will receive a larger 4 cyl engine this fall (2.4L). I'm assuming it is the same base engine as that in the Highlander. Having driven the current 4 cyl Solara, the extra 20 hp would be a very welcomed addition since the curremt Solara 4 cyl is underpowered. Remember that the Solara is heavier than the Camry. Toyota Customer Service (800 331-4331) is useless when it comes ... Read More
I read something from Toyota awhile ago (I forget where) that stated the 2002 Solara was slated for some mild styling changes (probably to coincide with the intro of the new Camry). Any wild guesses about what this might entail? Also - does anyone regret getting the manual transmission - especially with V6?
