Awesome car

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

Great car, this is my second Toyota I love it. My first Toyota was a 1998 Camry. This is a great sports car. It is roomy and the trunk is huge. Love it. If you are ever looking for a great car that is built to last this is the car for you.




Absolutely love my absolutely red

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

Toyota knows how to build a fun-to- drive 4 cylinder car. Not only that, but this one looks hot, and rides smooth as well. After determining that an Infiniti G35 was a little out of the price bracket this year, I decided to trade in my wonderfully reliable, but well-worn Ford Escort for something more...stylish and grown-up. The engine compression is fantastic, even at lower RPMs, so I don't miss the control of the manual transmission. The seats are extremely comfortable, and the power adjustments on the driver's seat are worth every penny. But don't take my word for it!




Good performance for a v4

So far, I have driven it for 7000+ miles and am still very happy with it. It surprises me how fast and stable a V4 auto can do on the road. The body structure seems much stronger than all other japanese cars that we owned. I don't think I could get a car better than this one at the same price.
