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


Review

Smooth, quiet cruiser. 30+ mpg on the highway. Plenty fast, great styling, ruined in '04 models. Paint chips badly on hood - must be airflow or the hood angle - noticed on others.


Favorite Features

Style, mileage


Suggested Improvements

better paint protection

2003 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe 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.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats. Smooth acceleration. Quiet interior.


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

This is the 2nd solara slev6 i've owned (2001+2003).The only reason I traded the '01 was to get the heated front seats. For the money its an exceptional value.Across the US from coast to coast with never a problem and an average of 28 highway/23 city mpg. No maintainance issues.Do regular service and it runs like a Swiss watch.Quality is on a par with my friend's Lexus ES300,handling is actually not that much below another friend's BMW,at half the price. I will probably buy another


Favorite Features

both cassette and cd players,I don't have to throw away my favorite tapes. 4 wheel abs disc brakes and traction control. proforms on 87 octane on problem


Suggested Improvements

heated steering wheel and perhaps a better placed center arm rest,would be nice. paint seems very susceptable to stone chips. Bettter rear seat ventilation.
