Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

The car has been to the shop 23 times in the last 4 years. There was a short in the electrical system in the first month that Toyota didn't find that caused many other problems. Worst Dealer ever, worst car ever. The car understeers heavily, too little grip for fun handling, I average 23 mpg. I bought this because I thought the Passat was unreliable. I will be trading this piece of crap in for a Saab this week. VW and Toyota need to be taught what customer service is.




Wonderful car!

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

This is my second Solara Convertible. First was a 2001. The car is beautiful, dependable, and always attracts attention. Only real downside is the rearview visibility. Rear window is too small and the rear seat headrests are too big.




Nice, competent and stylish convertible

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

Bought previously owned (certified). Car drives/looks like the Lexus. I get lots comments from people mistaking it for the Lexus. I have noticed body shake/roll over rough roads but it is not uncontrolable. Better tires (V or Z- rated) make it more manageable. It's fun to drive, has lots of zip and still delivers around 25.5 mpg using regular/87 octane fuel (though the owners manual "recommends" 89 octane or higher). I usually put a tankfull of premium fuel once or twice a month. I only notice a slight difference in total performance (power & mileage). Overall, a very nice combination of great looks, excellent performance/handling and super reliability. Definitely would purchase again.




Blind spots

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

The cars rides like a jewel. The worst thing is the roll bar in the rear, one cannot see what is in back of them, and also the rear window is small. The interior design is not very conducive to convenience of using the back seat area for putting packages on the floor temporarily. In fact you could eliminate the back seat area all together. No one can get back there to sit. I would not buy that model car again. I do love the Toyota engineering though, it is great over all.

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

There is a problem with rear view visibility from the drivers seat with the top up. The rear seat head restraints all so block vision out of small rear window. The Toyota body is not stiff enough with out the unit body roof, this makes the convertible a bit unstable on all but super smooth road surface. You get a lot of shake car needs improved body supports.




Why i enjoy my solara

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

Very enjoyable car for the price.We've had four seasons of fun.Seating for four adults in comfort.The Solara also has a very sure footed ride. Some convertible blind spots to be expected.But pound for pound Toyota got it right once again.This is my sixth Toyota product and yes I would buy this car again.
