2002 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For years I've wanted a convertible. This is my 3rd Toyota.This is a great car and fun to drive. The only problem I have had is the convertible top. It seems to catch on the right rear side often. This causes the "lip" behind the back seat to tear. Other than that, no problems.


Best Features

The top of course.

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

Been almost 3 years not... but I can just say, that this car has lived up to my expectations. No major issues at all. Just a few trips to the shop for the top. Interiors are great, excellent space in the rear.


Best Features

JBL Sound System, Automatic Climate Control.


Worst Features

Lever to the fuel tank required beneath the driver seat and no the glove comparment.

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


Review

Though I own a 4-cyl, automatic, the
car gave me in excess of 35-mpg at 75
mph on a trip to Ny from Fla. Very
comfortable, with 550 miles between
fillups. the car is giving me about 30
mpg in everyday use.
I'm 6'1", so I need the legroom of a
midsize.


Best Features

Styling is what converted me to the solara, and a reputation of being bulletproof!


Worst Features

better availiability of the 5-spd/4-cyl model.

2002 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is an excellent car (bought the
2002 SE V6 new)but the steering is
fuzzy (doesn't track well). It takes a
lot away from the driving experience
for a sporty looking car with a V6.


Best Features

Looks, gas mileage, interior layout, smooth engine


Worst Features

Better steering, better paint (chips easily)

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


Review

I purchase this car after doin alot of
homework...it has paid off. This
vehicle is exactly what I was looking
for - turn heads, be reliable, and
don;t take me to the cleaners on
pruchase or maintenance. It has held
up its end of the bargain. Its a shame
Toyota ruined the loos of the Solara
with its 2004 modsel - man, its really
overweight looking. My Solara will be
with me many years to come as it has
checked out with the leading consumer
report magazine and has stellar
reliability as most Toyota products
do. Go for it, this car is a winner.


Best Features

Looks, it really quiet, smooth & powerful 4 cyl engine, fuel economy, uniqueness - very few on the road, standard tinted class all around, large back seat, reliability, dependability


Worst Features

Interior wood treatment, could use a tighter turning radius, frameless door windows, has tendancy to creep when fan is on, nothing that would stop me from buying it again
