2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The Solara is very smooth to drive. I get a lot of compliments on the style of the car. I feel very safe because of the 5 star front and side crash ratings. I appreciate the fact that Toyota makes a moderately priced car with 3 airbags (front, side, and side curtain).


Favorite Features

Front/side/side curtain airbags for safety. Gauge that provides an estimate of miles you can travel until the fuel runs out. Six CD stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Blind spot in rear.

2004 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

A much better design than my 1999 Solara. Bigger engine with a stiffer suspension. My 99, although it handled great was a littly spongy around corners. The new 04 really hugs the road. It's a real trip to drive, and the dark blue metalic paint and super styling really turn heads where ever I go. Luxury car quality at an affordable price.


Favorite Features

Has to be the new design. Especially the front. When you stand in front of the car it seems to have a facial expression. Almost like the car is smiling at you.


Suggested Improvements

It's petty I know, but the head light sensor, which used to be on the passenger side, is now on the drivers side, and when the sun is overhead it reflects on the windshield. It's annoying and sometimes distracting.

2004 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Couldn't make up my mind over the usual 4-door *yawn* options: Altima/Mazda6/Camry/Galant/Taurus/Accord . Solara is more Lexus than Toyota (just compare the int. & ext bits to the ES300). Quiet, quick ,and gas mileage close to 40 during 70-mile daily commute in Dallas traffic, and not weary afterwards. Lots of rear seat room for the 2 kids, and they can get out by themselves just fine. Lots of safety features standard. Likes to run, gets itís legs at 70 mph and just wants to go faster.


Favorite Features

Nice Interior touches, quiet and smooth, standard safety features such as side airbags, 4-wheel disc, ABS. Roominess. CHEAP ON INSURANCE!


Suggested Improvements

Tire pressue indicator needs improvement

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


Review

I gave up a mercedes 500 SL for this car and I am happy I did. I looked at every convertable on the market. I had decided on Lexus sc430 till I test drove it for a day. The Solara has the appearance of the Lexus with twice the room and half the price. This is a fun car that combines the function of a practical car with the the thrill of driving a sporty eye catching car.


Favorite Features

Easy opertion of top, navigation system,style


Suggested Improvements

The only thing that I can think of that would improve the car is if it could have a self contained boot.
