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


Review

the only thing i regret is why i
didn't buy the trim with leather and
rear spoiler..and why it is silver
instead of black?? (they should make
more black cars)
my mistake..othrwise,a dream car for
the money.
dealrship was not helpful/professional
at all,they failed my test.i will buy
toyota again,but never from the same
people.


Best Features

the wood trim,the front cupholders,the very sexy styled design of the interior,the great sound,the nice ride,not bad mileage


Worst Features

back cupholders are joke;ABS should be standard;nice car with bad wheels and poor to avarage tires,comon' extra bucks for nice wheels are Sooo worth it.

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


Review

I seriously love the thing. I owned a
1988 Cadillac Sedan deVille before this
one, and the Solara feels much nicer
than the Caddy. The acceleration is OK
(for a 4-banger) and has been praised by
a Trans-Am owner as "having balls"
(again, for a 4-banger). Mileage is
great, ride is as smooth as the old
Caddy, and the stock audio system isn't
too bad. It's a royal pain in the butt
to change the rear speakers, however.
The vehicle itself is quite sexy. Very
reliable as well. I've recommended it
to many people already :)


Best Features

Moonroof, great mileage, comfortable and smooth ride, looks great!


Worst Features

Please, please, please make it easier to replace the rear speakers ... everything had to come out of the rear of the passenger compartment, even the seats!!

Review

I have really enjoyed the response. It
is very manuverable in traffic. I
switched from a full size Cadillac to
the Toyota Solara and from day one I
have been very pleased. I do not miss
the Cadillac.

Review

The sad story is that I no longer have
this car. Totaled.
It good news is that it saved our
lives.
Unbelievable
construction/quiet/responsive/roomy and
can take a 60 mph rear end hit. Felt
only like a bumper car hit us in the
back.

I'm replacing the 2002 with a 2003!!!


Best Features

The quiet of the inside and no road noise. Beautiful interior/great sound system. Plenty of guts with the 4 cyl. The 6 is a waste of money


Worst Features

Only improvement would be to quiet the 4 cyl down just a bit.

Review

After five Camaros and reading Toyota's
reviews, I decided to get one. The
Toyota was more expensive, but I
thought I would keep it longer due to
reliabily claims. I really like
overall look and handling of the car,
but my experience has been less than
great. The car has been in the shop
more than my Camaro. I have
had the Emissions Canister, Service
Computer, Sun Visor, door panel and
light in glove box replaced and I still
have a rattle. This Toyota has had
more rattles. The ride
is very rough for a car this size
(worse than Camaro). I can feel every
bump in the road. I like the car, but
I don't know if I would ever purchase
one again.


Best Features

Sunroof, peppy engine and leather interior.


Worst Features

Better shocks to make softer ride. Improve on interior so that rattles are less likely to occur.
