2001 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my 01 18 months ago with 58,000 miles on it. Since then I have put 30,000 miles on it.
I have had no trouble with the vehicle at all.
However, when I first bought it I had to put one quart of oil in whenever it reached 2K miles since an oil change.
I began changing the oil every 2K miles and now it doesnt use any oil even if I go past 3K between oil changes (sludge can be a problem with this model engine and frequent oil changes are a good idea). The 4cyl is a little underpowered but it gets good mileage.
The interior fit is sound throughout the car.
The hood finish is rough and seems to be a common problem with solaras in these years.

Best Features

Interior space, body design, fuel efficiency, reliability, value, comfort

Worst Features

If you can afford the 6cyl, definitely get one.
