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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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 Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

What an awesome car. Fun to drive, especially with the top down. Smooth ride. All the bells a whistles of a more expensive car with an affordable price. The only complaint is a major blind spot when the top is up.


Best Features

Love the convertible top. Easy to use. Great sound system.


Worst Features

Toyota needs to work on the blind spot and either lower the back headrests or enlarge the back window.

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


Review

The car looks great but with the top up and the fixed rear headrests its impossible to see out the rear window. The fit and finish of the body has panel and paint flaws where the plastic meets the metal,which the dealer refused to repair. The Conv top stitching was coming apart by the rear window, again no dealer help. The seat belts do not retract and the rear belts flap in the wind with the top down. The car has no side guard protection so you accumulate parking dings on the doors. The front slope of the car does not allow you to see the distance to the car in front when parking or entering a garage. The cover for the Conv top requires two people to install. Very disappointed

None

Copy the BMW 3 series Conv

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.
