2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Great ride, roomy trunk, reliable.
Reintroduce the manual transmission as
an option with the V6. Get up to speed
with the competition - 240 HP Altima
and now Accord.
