2006 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

A fun car to drive, and the car handles and responds very well; so far the car handles and responds very well in the snow. The car has power when you need it, and the fuel economy is better than expected: ~24 City (Winter ~19, car needs to warm up) and ~34 Highway. The car is very quiet, and the ride is great, although the suspension is a bit stiffer then I'm use too (I'm use to driving a sedan).


Best Features

1. its unique design 2. shiftable automatic 3. the auto tinting mirrors (rearview and drivers side) at night. I didn't think the auto tinting mirrors would be that big of a deal until the first time I drove the car at night. Now I am hooked on this feature and wish the passenger side would tint


Worst Features

I wish the heated seats would have adjustable temperatures. Toyota only offers the Solara with an on/off switch.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

You'd expect more from Toyota. After a month check engine light came on and the dealer determined that cylinder 3 misfires (it had erratic idling and would not accelerate properly). All they did was reset the computer. 2 weeks after they did it, check engine light came on again. Feels like the same problem. The car has 1400 miles on it. Also the door does not always close right away. This is due to the fact that there is no frame around the glass. Also even when it does close, there is excessive noise from the wind when driving at 50 mph. You have to pull the window down and then close it again for the wind to go away. Taking it to the dealer again tomorrow...


Best Features

Rich interior materials and design. Fun to drive Moonroof Standard alloy wheels and fog lights


Worst Features

Better build quality - it's Toyota for pete's sake. Standard in-dash CD changer on entry model

2006 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

It's a pretty car, I'll give it that. But that's not enough to make this a car to love. The 4-cyl engine doesn't have enough power, I worry about getting enough acceleration to merge on to the highways. The car just feels a bit "clunky" to me. Oh, and don't crack the windows if it's just stopped raining, you'll get drenched; the water pours in....


Best Features

The standard audio system is quite nice.


Worst Features

That whole thing with the rain dripping on you has to be fixed....

2006 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have driven over 60,000 miles in less than 2 years. Vehicle is fun, lean on fuel, untimely style, quick, efficient, and safe. Am completely pleased. Large trunk, good sound system, excellent air flow, and comfortable for the driver. Had to replace windshield due to road hazard (expected with hi mileage). As long as you keep serviced, this vehicle won't let you down.


Best Features

Driver seat comfort, large trunk, cool styling, moonroof, safety features


Worst Features

Cannot use satellite radio, would like more elbow room, passenger seat is not powered, stuff falls all over in trunk, some buttons (like defrost) hard to see and reach w/o losing focus on driving--

2006 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SE Sport V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The five speed automatic tranmission doesn't shift properly when speeding up after slowing down or coming out of a turn. Dealership tells me it's operating as designed. Will never get another Toyota.


Best Features

It gets more than 30 average MPG per onboard computer.


Worst Features

Get rid of "adaptive" transmissions, or employ a rigid override, such that the trans will not adapt to driver if that is desired.
