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


Review

Outstanding quality, nice ride, seats 4, looks great. This convertible is a bargain compared to others out there and it comes with the typical Toyota reliability. May not be the most stylish on the outside, but this is a great automobile.


Best Features

The top coming down!!


Worst Features

Maybe a little better outside styling.

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


Review

This car is still a delight to me every weekend when I drive it (I metro to work during the week). It is a real looker. Folks stare! Build quality is a daily joy. This was my first new car in 30 years and worth the wait.


Best Features

DVD NAV, cream colored leather interior (hard to find in a new car), powerful engine, spacious trunk. This design is a perfect base for more high end features for which I would have gladly paid.


Worst Features

More cabin illumination, power passenger seat, footwell and puddle lights, directional lights in mirrors, illuminated top and window switches (hard to find at night), factory installed satellite radio.

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


Review

I dreamed of owning a convertible, but never thought it practical until now. Comfortable leather, awesome features, enough ROOM for all (even my hubby at 6'4"), a back seat that is REALLY a back seat, and easy to use automatic controls for just about everything. The ride is smooth, almost feels like I am in a video game at times. I am most impressed with how quiet it is with the top up, I don't even realize it is a convertible, unless of course the top is down HA HA! GREAT JOB TOYOTA!


Best Features

Easy to use automatic top, steering wheel controls for 6cd changer/radio. Heated seat.


Worst Features

Only one concern: several different test drives with different Solaras, and now with mine, the car slips a little occasionally when excellerating from dead stop, doesn't continue after about 2nd gear. Suggestion: drivers seat set point for driver to automatically revert after others drive

2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great looking car, mechanically sound, fantastic mileage. Lack comfort. Very poor seat design. Handling is a little stiff/awkward. Sound system is fine, trunk space roomy.


Best Features

Great body style


Worst Features

The seats need major improvement as do the seat belt locations.

none
