2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I thought was hooked on Hondas until I
got my Solara. The Solara is roomier,
more stylish, quieter, and more
ergonomic than any Honda engineer could
dream up. It gets a little less gas
milage and is a little heavier than the
Honda. Just shut the doors and feel
the difference in how solid and tight
this car is. It is fun to drive.
Honda makes a great car, but this is a
step up in the right direction.
The spoiler looks great, the front and
rear lights are classy, the engine is
quiet, the seats are comfortable, the
controls are perfect.
The 5-speed is geared a little low.
First gear runs out a little too quick
and gas milage could be improved if 5th
gear ran out a little longer.
4 wheel disk brakes might help.
The Toyota dealerships are terrible
liars desperate for a sale. Very Sad.
