2002 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my Solara SLE new in July, 2002. Very reliable - I've put 70,000+ miles on it but have had NO mechanical problems whatsoever. Handles well - especially on curves. Average about 26- 27 MPG on highway. Handles very well in up to 6" of snow. V-6 has a lot of power. Overall fun car to drive!
Reliability! Leather/wood trim package looks classy. Heated seats. Great handling. Good gas mileage. Large trunk with fold down back seat. Roomy, comfortable back seat for adults. Quiet cabin. Windows allow good visibility overall. Fun, sporty car to drive. Looks and drives like a Lexus.
Paint chips and scratches easily. Back seat cup holders are "chinsy." Front passenger seat doesn't go back to original position after you move it forward to allow passengers in back seat - always have to readjust it. Parents - back seat area is not well designed for child safety seat use.
