2003 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Actually I own a 2000 SE V6 Manual and
I am very disappointed to see that
Toyota has dropped that transmission
from the V6 lineup. The manual is the
reason I went with the Solara versus
the Accord. Now for 2003, the Accord
comes with a 240 hp V6 AND a manual for
about the same price as a now
underpowered and not so fun to drive
Solara (in comparison to the
competition). I very much enjoy the
Solara but in a year or so when ready
to buy a new car, I won’t consider the
Solara without the manual transmission.

Best Features

Great ride, roomy trunk, reliable.

Worst Features

Reintroduce the manual transmission as an option with the V6. Get up to speed with the competition - 240 HP Altima and now Accord.
