2003 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Don't let the fact that the top goes down down fool you. Terrible JBL radio, lousy seats, lots of wind noise with the top up, busy HVAC controls, no stick, so so gas mileage, crappy center console is an elbow rest not an arm rest. Purchased this car for the wife cause she liked the way it looked with the top down, but after spending an hour driving it, she would rather drive her 10 year old jeep with 150,000 miles on it. This car may or not be reliable down the road, but it's a lot to put up with just for the sake of reliability.

Best Features

Old Gen 1 styling, nice dead pedal even though no stick is available. Just goes to show, lavish fluff with little thought to practial excution.

Worst Features

See review. The gen 2s may have addressed some of these issues but the styling of the 04 and up leaves me numb.
