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.

Actually I own a 2000 SE V6 Manual and I am very disappointed to see that Toyota has dropped that transmission from the V6 lineup. The manual is the reason I went with the Solara versus the Accord. Now for 2003, the Accord comes with a 240 hp V6 AND a manual for about the same price as a now underpowered and not so fun to drive Solara (in comparison to the competition). I very much enjoy the Solara but in a year or so when ready to buy a new car, I won’t consider the Solara without the manual transmission.

This is a quiet and comfortable auto; no complaint there. But it's turning radius needs to be shortened considerably. Also, I would like to see tighter steering; the Solara doesn't do well in highway turns. Otherwise, a fine car.
