2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had absolutely no issues with my Solara at all. There are no rattles regarding interior components or moldings, the fit of both interior and exterior panels are perfect. I can drive it conservatively and get 27 to 28 miles to the gallon with 91 octane fuel. Even if I decide to push it a bit harder, I can still get 25 to 26 miles per gallon. I have gotten many positive comments regarding the exterior styling of the vehicle. I had this Solara built so have all of the sporty upgrades but none of the fluffy upgrades (I didn't need a mirror that told me which direction I was going). The tuning upgrades have not affected the comfort of the ride as far as I can tell. I researched vehicles for 1 year before I bought, looking at Volvos, Mustangs, Hondas, everything that compared. This vehicle is the best hands down. I love this car!!


Best Features

I love the suspension and drivetrain the most. I have the 3.3 liter V6 which has enough power to live as exiting a driving life as most feel comfortable with. My wife constantly comments that my car can "go so much faster around corners" than hers. The suspension is definitely a plus!

Review

Engine a sleeper? This car is much
faster than Accord with 240 ponies -
greater torque, and at lower engine
speeds + sequential shifter... For all
complainers out there - try to shift
it while driving - this car just might
surprise you... I bought it for my
wife and she loves it - beautiful
interior, Lexus-like build quality,
quiet engine, great performance,
awesome stereo (option), and red
interior with high quality beige cloth
interior. I highly recommend this car
instead of much overrated Accord....


Best Features

Performance, fun to drive, stylish interior, high quality build and materials, gigantic trunk, comfort, and ride quality (very, very smooth)

Review

Yes! We just purchased a Toyota Camry
Solara SE V6 coupe and got a great out-
the-door-deal. That aside, the engine
is smooth as silk, the ride is quiet
and not too harsh. We elected to go
with 16 in. aluminum wheels to avoid
excessive tire wear. Back to the
engine. It really is a sleeper. Like
you may have read, it's not the fastest
coupe, but boy is it stronger than
my '83 Pontiac Trans Am (175 hp) and it
is certainly better built and more
reliable based on Toyota's anal
fixation with quality, fit, and
comfort. Hurry and get yours before
they're all gone. We now own 2 Camrys
(same color, sedan and coupe, 03 and 05
repsectively).


Best Features

3.3 L VVT-I V6, silver accented interior,real-time mpg display, satellite audio/display controls,4 channel 4 wheel abs, side air bags (standard),cruise control,quick cooling air conditioner,automatic on/off head/fog lights,telescoping steering wheel,the trunk is cavernous,side airbags standard.


Worst Features

I could say more ponies, but with gas prices being so volatile, that might not be a an improvement.

Review

REAR WINDOW IS SMALL IN CONVERTABLES.
THE HEAD REST ON REAR SEATS BLOCKS
VISABILITY EVEN MORE. THEY COULD BE
RETRACTABLE WHEN THERE ARE NO
PASSENGERS. THAT WAY, YOU WOULD HAVE
THE ENTIRE REAR WINDOW FOR VISABILITY.


Best Features

THE RADIO ON THE STEERING WHEEL IS A GREAT SAFETY FEATURE. IT ALSO HELPS TO HAVE THE COMPASS ON THE REAR VIEW MIRROR.


Worst Features

MAKE THE HEAD REST ON THE BACK SEATS RETRACTABLE WHEN NO ONE IS SITTING IN THE BACK OF AUTO. VISABILITY WOULD BE GREATLY IMPROVED.
