A great looking car!
By Stephen on
2005 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
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.
The bold styling, trunk space (3 sets of clubs easily), gauges (white lit), acceleration, interior finishes, Toyota reliability.
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.
