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


Review

After almost 30K miles, still love the car. Only problem has been the bluetooth and the horrible rear view when the top is up. Would love for someone to make a new top for it with a larger rear window. Great car, 32 mpg on the hwy with ac on and 70 mph. 24 around town. Great comfort and so smooth.


Favorite Features

smooth and quiet and great fuel econ

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


Review

In white frost this is a real head turner - it really is a Lexus 430 with a Toyota badge. The styling makes a statement - this is one very striking car to drive. With the top down and the boot cover on it draws observers and great comments. The top does have a blind spot and the boot fills the trunk but I can live with those inconveniences. The interior is roomy, all controls are of quality and this is clearly one very premium car. Performance is excellent, the engine is quiet, and the transmission is really seamless. Mileage is 25 MPG - not bad for luxury. What a wonderful ride!

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


Review

I wanted a convertible so badly and picked this one (my first Toyota). It has the worst pickup of any car I have ever driven. My VW Beetle was more powerful than this car. I am hesitant when on a ramp to get on a highway because the car fails the get up and go you need. My lease is over in two years and I can't wait!!! On the positive side, it is nice to drive with the top down on a nice day. Oh by the way, the rear window is very poor in terms of visibility so be careful when backing up.

Review

Good car, but the first one we got had a huge flaw in the mounting of the driver's side door which cause water to come into the car. Car was swapped for a duplicate model and we've been happy so far. Check the door for fit. Car drives very well but don't expect sporty speed or cornering - it's not that kind of car. Interior is well designed except for crummy cupholders. Love the aux jack and its location. Multifunction display is actually useful. Roof operates well but the lack of independent control for the rear windows is odd and annoying. Roof quality is excellent but the blind spot is larger than my previous convertibles. Overall: B+ to A-


Favorite Features

Interior of car is excellent. Aux jack and location is great. Multifunction display is useful but not overwhelming. Smooth top made of nice materials. Engine is smooth and quiet. Came with a nice set of Michelin tires instead of normal low-end Bridgestone rubber.


Suggested Improvements

Fit of the driver's door is really not up to Toyota's famed quality. Saw many vehicles where the lower left corner on the drivers side stuck out a bit. Transmission can be a bit sluggish on downshift. Cupholders are horrible. Get the right mug or it will spill all over. Top boot cover is a bad design
