2003 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe 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 Coupe 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.

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.


Best Features

6 disc cd player, interior layout.


Worst Features

Toyota has to look into consumer complaints.

2003 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have enjoyed this car, it rides better than my 2001 Accord did. The only problems we have had is the bearings in one wheel went out. Other than that all we have done is replace the tires and have regular maintenance done.


Best Features

Gas mileage, ride


Worst Features

Seatbelt pulls on shoulder and booster seats don't fit very well.

Review

I bought my Solara brand new in 2003. It was the first brand new car I'd purchased in about 25 years. I would not change a thing about this car. I absolutely love the way it handles, the way it looks and the fact that I haven't had to do anything to it except regular maintenance. I intend to drive this thing until it falls apart. I am so happy I bought the 2003 model because I have been completely unimpressed with the newer body styles.


Best Features

the look, the JBL stereo, the moon roof, the insurance is reasonable


Worst Features

mmmm...nothing...
