  • The new standard for elegance, refinement and value in the midsize coupe and convertible segment, but it's better enjoyed from the inside.

Best car i've ever owned!

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I have a 2005 Solara with 105,000 miles on it and I absolutely love it! I've had the car for 5 years now and it's a true head turner, there is nothing on the road that looks like it. I've also had no major problems with the car. I'm 6'5" & about 290 lbs and there is plenty of head room and the most leg room of any car I've ever driven. This is without a doubt the most comfortable car I've ever driven; including BMW, Mercedes and Lexus. The car comfortably seats 4 and maybe 5 if the three in the back are smaller people. It is great on gas mileage and the upkeep is next to nothing. The only issues that I've had are the alignment and balancing issues with the tires that others have stated




Best bang for my buck

Vehicle: 2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

well were to start what a value! i love my solora i have the 3.3 liter convertible with navigation. The solora is my daily driver, the gas mileage is awesome. I'll pop the top on the way to work in the morning, or late at night. I have owned toyotas before and the quality dependablity and reliablity is what keeps me coming back. my fiance and I are planning to buy the 06 hybrid highlander..we test drove it the day i bought the convertible and boy did that drive just like a v8!...the gas mileage is better then most cars..n e ways if you dont think that toyota is right for you then try owning one.

It's a great car in almost every way. Just that the view out of the rear view mirror is awkward. Drives beautifully and handles well. Terrific brakes.

Good quality...nice bang for the bucks...a few bugs...getting a little moisture in car after rain...tire pressure light goes on for no apparent reason

I compared Volkswagon, Honda, Nissan, BMW and Toyota and absolutely couldn't find a better value. This car combines my desire for style, performance, reliability and resale value. It offers the look and features of a much more expensive vehicle.
