Had a 2001 Volvo and lease was up -
traded for new Solara which I had seen
at the Chicago Auto Show. The car
rides smooth, has much more space and
plenty of pep. For the few
little "creature comforts" you got with
the Volvo, the additional space and
$10,000 price difference are worth it.
I RECENTLY TOOK DELIVERY OF THE NEWLY
DESIGNED TOYOTA SOLARA CONVERTIBLE. MY
WIFE AND I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH
THIS NEW CAR. THIS IS THE FIRST
CONVERTIBLE THAT WE HAVE EVER OWNED AND
SO FAR WE ARE REALLY ENJOYING. I WOULD
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANY0NE LOOK
ING FOR THIS TYPE OF VEHICLE,
THE RIDE AND HANDLING.
THE SEAT BELT HOLDERS NEED IMPROVEMENT
THE SEAT BELT COMES UNSNAPPED FROM THE
BACK OF THE SEAT.
Great convertible for the money
compared to Chrysler or Ford. Much
more for your money than $15,000 extra
would cost for BMW or others. If
interested in the XM satellite radio,
negotiate the price up front since it
will cost you over $700 to make the
factory unit work after the fact in
the SLE model. I was told I could
take the vehicle to Best Buy to have
the necessary equipment installed to
make the "XM Ready" stereo work. Not
true. You must install Toyota parts
to make the head unit work as designed
unless you want to add another head
unit. Most Toyota dealers do not
understand or have experience with XM
Leather seats and convertible top
Make it easier & cheaper to get XM
radio into the "XM ready" factory
2004 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
My husband and I love our Solara. The
leather interior is beautiful. The car
handles very well. The only thing I
think could be improved would be the
air conditioning. It is very hard to
control and keep it at a even
temperature. It seems to be too cold
or not cold enough.
The body style and leather interior.
We have had so many compliments.
