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.

Solara

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Still chugging along at 120,000 miles. Reliable; no major repairs needed. Changed battery twice. Needed idle valve control cleaned about 5000 miles ago. Getting only about 20mpg, though.

Bad blind spot & sound,

Don't take me bad, I really like the car for both performance and exterior design. However, blind spot is really big problem, you should buy extra blind spot mirror. Don't trust advertised JBL sound system, I give a 6 on 10 scale. No trunk release inside the car, very inconvenient. Also, you can't read the sound system face plate when there is sunny because of the weird angle.




Good car

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Just purchased with lots of miles. Car was a 1 owner with lots of TLC. Only complaints so far is the gas pedal sticks, and vibration in the steering wheel when applying the brakes. Overall very nice ride.




Good for daily driver, but

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car used last year, and I've been driving it daily. Quite reliable, especially because the engine has been used by Toyota for quite some years. However, since the engine is old technology, there are much more powerful engines and transmissions out there. Gas mileage is not good enough, compared to the new V6s out there. Automatic transmission is not responsive enough, loses power starting second gear. Interior is very comfortable though. Cannot find another car this soft and comfy except maybe American cars. Sound system is only better than average. Ride is floaty at high speed, suspension is comfortable but too soft for spirited driving. User features are limited.
