2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I thought 220hp meant a little performance. Honestly, my 150hp Pontiac had better acceleration & performance than this thing. It is slow, sluggish, hesitates with acceleration, downshifts when I don't want it too, and jerks like a kid learning a stick shift (it's an automatic) at slow speeds. The dealership tells me there is nothing they can do about it, that it is the "drive by wire" throttle system. Well, I HATE it. I would like to be able to accelerate into traffic without worrying about getting hit by oncoming traffic because my car didn't respond when I hit the gas. The dealer promised me that I would "LOVE" my Toyota, but I'm ready to trade it in with less than 5k miles on it!
