Initial Excelleration - Poor & Brakes
By Coupe on
2004 Toyota Camry Solara SE Sport V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Over all I would give my Solara SE V6 a low grade because of it's very much like a turbo engine. A friend of mine is a Toyota mechanic and he explained why there is so much excelleration delay similiar to a turbo lag engine. For this review, I'm only referring to low speed performance. At highway speeds it is more than adequate. I think it is unsafe, because when you need instant excelleration, it's just not there. I have owned a manual turbo engine car before and it was very responsive from low end to high end speeds. Would I buy another Solara? NO! Another problem I found is that the brakes are to spungy. I don't get that positive feedback from the brake pedal.
Design, reliability and red color.
Get rid of the excelleration problem and fix the brakes.
