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


Review

I really like this car. It looks really nice from the outside and looks good on the inside. The fuel economy is nice. It turns eyes. It is very reliable. The only thing I am not cray about is that it feels like you are driving a bus sometimes. They should have tightened up the steering. It really drives like a grandpa lexus and I knew that going into it. I had an audi before this and nothing compares to the audi's AWD, however the solara does pretty well in the snow. Overall, very solid car that looks really good.


Favorite Features

The look The fuel economy The reliability


Suggested Improvements

XM-serius? They put a button but it doesn't do anything. How bout some buttons on the steering wheel, Tighter steering Other than that, great car

Having had 4 BMWs, 3 Porsches, and numerous other cars in my lifetime; I must say this Toyota is the best of them all. Build quality and dependability is unmatched, and the comfort and economy is excellent. Keep building it!

I am very impressed with the quality of this car, the ride is smooth like a big car. It gets great gas mileage, runs quite, only wish I had bought a convertible. Cause they run about the same price. Nothing bad to say about this car.

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


Review

Excellent quality both initial and after 15000 miles. Performance, styling, ride are all excellent especially considering the price of this vehicle. The engine is so quiet that my wife occasionally complains that she can't hear it running at a stop light.


Favorite Features

Wow... There are many... Navigation, heated seats, A/C-Heat, sound system, styling (in & out) but most of all the build quality!


Suggested Improvements

memory seats/mirrors/steering wheel position, power passenger seat, sometime the 3-pod display (computer, clock, temp) are difficult to see in sunlight.

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


Review

I've never been in a car with as efficient of an air conditioning system as this one. Cools down almost immediately after you turn it on. It is very stylish on both the inside and outside, while also being quite comfortable. The back seats are less comfortable than the front, though. Visibility can be a little bit rough because of the way the rear and side/back windows are styled. Back seat headrests also kind of get in the way. Terrific gas mileage and a very smooth ride.


Favorite Features

Great AC. Very stylish exterior and pretty nice interior. Great gas mileage. Lots of trunk space. Very comfortable seats. Very quiet inside. Smooth (and pretty fast) ride.


Suggested Improvements

Rear/side visibility needs to be improved somehow... with perhaps slightly larger windows. Rain pools above door frame and splashes on seat when opening door. Transmission is a little sticky at times. Cup holders should be smaller (or possibly variable in size). Rims are a bit boring-looking.

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


Review

This car has everything someone who needs space, but wants a sporty look, could want. Assume it is a great car, except for the following: 1.What really bugs me is that the transmission balks on re-acceleration after slowing down to about 6 m.p.h. (say you are slowing for a traffic light and it turns green just before you get there.) It jerks forward when you apply the gas in this situation. There is no way to avoid this without slowing traffic behind you while you gingerly nurse the gas pedal. 2. Forget trying to back out of a driveway with confidence. The beautiful lines that we love to look at from the outside hamper the visibilty from the inside - back and sides.


Favorite Features

The bold styling, trunk space (3 sets of clubs easily), gauges (white lit), acceleration, interior finishes, Toyota reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Paint is very thin and scratches easily - very noticeable on black. Not well painted. Would like to see the drivers seat slide forward further and more quickly. Can't load a passenger in that side- not enough space and you'd get soaked in a rain waiting for it to get there.

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


Review

Great car, very confortable on good roads, while not as great on our poor quality Quebec roads. A/C is fantastic.


Favorite Features

A/C climate control, seats, rear space and trunk space, and access.Handling is nimble for such a big car. Brakes and traction control and stability control, works great.


Suggested Improvements

Car hesitation at 20-30 mph while trying to accelerate. Difficulty to leave from a stop position smoothly (drive by wire: hummmmmmm!!!!!)

Review

I recently purchased a SLE V6. Great decision! Interior fit and finish is fantastic, the engine is barely audible, and the ride is smooth and controlled. Love all the options for the price-V6, leather, heated seats, sunroof. The 2006's are out and I got a great deal on my 2005 model. Several dealers were willing to negotiate, I think they are trying to move the 2005 models off the lots. I compared it with the Honda Accord coupe (nicer inside, classier styling, manumatic instead of auto or 6 speed), the Infiniti G35 (much quieter, nicer inside!), and the Merecedes 230 sedan and coupe (more horses, much quieter, huge price advantage). I highly recommend this vehicle!


Favorite Features

smooth ride, interior fit and finish, features for the $, great looking white paint


Suggested Improvements

doors a bit heavy and cumbersome when parking (true with most 2 doors)

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


Review

I love my new car. It is so beautiful. Clean lines. Wonderful music system. Very easy to drive and handling and cornering is smooth. It has plenty of pep for my style of Metro driving. Seater heaters are very nice and I use them on cold morning. There is a blind spot on the right side... I have to be careful. The moon roof is perfect but a little noisey with the rubber wind shield, but doesnt blow my hair to pieces.


Favorite Features

I love the multi disc CD changer. I love the color ... ultimate red. The leather is very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. I love the big trunk, it hold all my packages.


Suggested Improvements

Increase horse power, with dual exhaust. Side door guards to keep others from bumping the doors. Take the jerk out of the transmission when it shifts down.
