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


Review

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.


Best Features

Probably burning a lot of fuel, but this car has enough power to zip me through traffic.


Worst Features

Maybe move the trunk release to somewhere outside of the glove compartment. It is safe to have it in there, but I once locked my keys in the trunk and even AAA couldn't save me then.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Excellent acceleration, braking is above the average


Worst Features

Blind spot. Trunk Release mechanic inside the car. Angle for the driver to be able to read the sound face plate.

Worst Features

Toyota has to look into consumer complaints.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Comfortable seats. Smooth acceleration. Quiet interior.


Worst Features

Larger armrest. Manual transmission for V6. Sports-tuned suspension. Steering wheel stereo control. Telescopic steering wheel.
