2002 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my Solara SLE new in July, 2002. Very reliable - I've put 70,000+ miles on it but have had NO mechanical problems whatsoever. Handles well - especially on curves. Average about 26- 27 MPG on highway. Handles very well in up to 6" of snow. V-6 has a lot of power. Overall fun car to drive!


Best Features

Reliability! Leather/wood trim package looks classy. Heated seats. Great handling. Good gas mileage. Large trunk with fold down back seat. Roomy, comfortable back seat for adults. Quiet cabin. Windows allow good visibility overall. Fun, sporty car to drive. Looks and drives like a Lexus.


Worst Features

Paint chips and scratches easily. Back seat cup holders are "chinsy." Front passenger seat doesn't go back to original position after you move it forward to allow passengers in back seat - always have to readjust it. Parents - back seat area is not well designed for child safety seat use.

2002 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, I've only owned the car about 8 months, purchased it used for a private party, they kept records on everything this car went thru however, which was very little. To date, it's never been taken in for anything other than routine service. The only thing not absolutely pleasing about this car is the accommodation of someone of my height, at 6'2" I feel a little bit claustrophobic until I open the sunroof.


Best Features

6 disc in dash cd changer and JBL speakers, on-dash rear bulb monitor, electronic climate control.


Worst Features

Tilt steering can feel awkward when seat is moved back to accommodate taller drivers, lumbar supports (optional) don't provide quite enough support, no steering wheel audio controls given the span you have to reach to operate the radio

2002 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I decided to give Toyota a try with the purchase of my 2002 Toyota Solara. This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. The only thing I have had to replace on this car in 4 years is tires and a battery.


Best Features

Sleek design, reliability, overall performance.

2002 Toyota Camry Solara Coupe SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned the Solara now since Oct. 2003 and have to say that is proving very reliable and generally a pleasure to drive. Still has a nice "tight" ride with a very quiet cabin. It's the only car I've owned that has not developed a rattle or buzz of any kind. The engine doesn't feel or sound like a 4 cyl. but has lots of pick up and excellent gas mileage.


Best Features

As I said the very quiet ride and I also like the elegant yet stylish interior and dash.


Worst Features

By only 35,000 KM. the Toyo tires were virtually bald. Toyota should have put a higher quality stock tire on this model.
