Review of the 2003 Toyota Camry Solara

  • Still based on the old Camry platform, the Solara coupe offers little when compared to the '03 Camry and its modern features, unless you want a convertible.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy cabin, convertible version, reliable Camry genes, smooth engines.

  • Cons

    Expensive, two less doors but little added excitement, no manual offered with V6.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, the manual transmission is no longer available with the V6 engine.

Smooth and comfortable

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I traded my '01 Honda Accord for my '03 Solara. Love my Solara! Have been getting excellent gas mileage. 30-32 mpg. Driver's seat is very comforable and engine is very smooth and quiet.




Better than a seabring

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Compared to the Chrysler Sebring, Mitsubishi Eclipse and Ford Mustang, this car totally blows them out of the water in terms of comfort, ride, engine performance (V4). The car gives a very sporty driving experience without the ruff ride. The cabin is very spacious with plenty of leg room for rear passengers. The interior is very symmetrical and stylish, though lacking a sporty edge. The Solara provides a large trunk door with ample cargo space. Overall, this is the best car I have ever had the pleasure to drive. I would definitely by another Toyota in the future.




Luxury without all the expense

I love my Solara...what else can I say. I did not upgrade to the V6 because of finicial responsibility, but I am still trilled with the 4 cylinder. It has alot of pick me up compared to my 92 Accord. It feels like a V6 to me. Love the stereo....Go buy you one today!

OOPS. I bought my Solara about 1 month ago, and then I saw what the 2004 Solara will look like. Intro date is in August 2003. I'm sorry I didn't wait. It's a great car though

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Typical of all my Toyotas. Well built. Solid. User friendly. Dealer treated me very well. Had problem with brake rotors right out of the lot. Dealer came and got the car and replaced them without complaint. It is the first time in my purchasing Toyotas I have had a problem within the first 90 days so I am not disappointed.




Excellent

The car is phenomenal. The ride is flawless. Very Lexus-like. Quality is impeccible. For a 4 cylinder it is very peppy. Interior is very comfortable.
