2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my 2nd Solara convertible. I bought a 2008 brand new and got rid of it after a year because I had an itch for a fancier car. Huge mistake. I just bought a used 2008 Solara SLE convertible with only 2,000 miles on it and it is wonderful. It fits my 6'1 frame, drives beautifully and is really the perfect car. It's not a Porsche or BMW or other high performance car. It is a smooth, well-constructed piece of heaven.

2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've been looking at this car for quite some time. Finally decided on the convertible and I just love it!! the ride and performance on this vehicle is just like a Lexus, just like driving/riding on air! The only issue I see is the rear view window should be bigger due to the huge blind spot. There is some road noise while driving, but it's a convertible. A/C works perfectly along with everything else. I can't say enough Wonderful things about this car, it's nothing but Pure Quality from Toyota!!


Best Features

the ride, performance, the interior, everything about this car is Pure Toyota/Lexus Quality!!


Worst Features

Bigger rear window

2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Convertible is one that actually can comfortably hold 4 - with my two active sons in the back seat. It has very nice ride, especially on the highway. Navigation system could be improved to allow adjustments while moving. Voice recognition better than others used. Overall an enjoyable car to take out on ride, especially on a nice sunny day, with enough room for the family and all the junk in the trunk.


Best Features

Convertible quick to go down, large back seat, interior finish excellent, large trunk, comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Navigation system upgrade, updated exterior styling, more acceleration.

2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first non BMW car in 10 years. This is also my first Toyota ever. I am very surprised about the quality. Ride is a little noisy but it's a convertible. Other that that I love this car, smooth ride and with the top down it is the most fun car I have ever owned. Fits a family of four comfortably & I am lost without the nav. Besides normal maintenance have not had a problem since the day I rolled it off the lot, and I drive 150 miles a day.


Best Features

NAV. Big trunk. Turns heads (get a lot of compliments on it).


Worst Features

Agree with all reviews... horrible blind spots. Convertible boot could be better and easier to install.

Review

I had reservations about buying a car I knew was no longer being manufactured. However, there simply is not a convertible out there that provides the smoothness, comfort, feature set, and room anywhere near this price point. And the close-out incentives were certainly compelling. This car is not about driving excitement. Freeway curves easily taken at 80 in my 3-series need to be adjusted down to 60 in the Solara. Acceleration is good, but not dramatic. However, everything about this car exudes refinement - whisper-quiet Lexus grade engine, solid thunk of the trunk, smooth switch gear, damped cup holder cover, efficient top mechanism.


Best Features

Feels rich, high feature content, expected Toyota reliability, quiet, comfortable, roomy, smooth, night sky above


Worst Features

Massive blind spots, small rear window, need automatic panel to hide folded top mechanism (like my old Audi)
