Functional, but with major problems

2000 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe


I've always owned Ford products until this Toyota, and was expecting great things. Bought it with just over 35,000 miles on it. At 55,000 miles, had to replace the engine after a broken push rod destroyed the lower half. Thankfully, the local dealer was able to arrange "good will" coverage, as the warranty had just expired. I've never been able to keep an alignment on the car for more than a few months, and have major vibration through the steering column at highway speeds. It handles well but lacks any power, as you might imagine with a 4-cylinder. I'm sorely disappointed with my first Toyota.

Best Features

Gas mileage - I went from a V8 Ford Crown Vic to the 4-cyl. Solara - big difference at the pump, even before $4 gas. Also has a surprisingly big trunk.

Worst Features

I may be the first person to ever say this, but the reliability on my Toyota is what needs the most improvement.
