2005 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I recently purchased a SLE V6. Great decision! Interior fit and finish is fantastic, the engine is barely audible, and the ride is smooth and controlled. Love all the options for the price-V6, leather, heated seats, sunroof. The 2006's are out and I got a great deal on my 2005 model. Several dealers were willing to negotiate, I think they are trying to move the 2005 models off the lots. I compared it with the Honda Accord coupe (nicer inside, classier styling, manumatic instead of auto or 6 speed), the Infiniti G35 (much quieter, nicer inside!), and the Merecedes 230 sedan and coupe (more horses, much quieter, huge price advantage). I highly recommend this vehicle!
smooth ride, interior fit and finish, features for the $, great looking white paint
doors a bit heavy and cumbersome when parking (true with most 2 doors)
The Camry Solara Convertible is pure pleasure to drive. I have owned it for just over 4 months. It is very comfortable. It fits me perfectly. It doesn,t take long to put the top up or down. Friends and neighbors are impressed with the appearance and the ride. I am having much fun owning it.
It is my first convertible so I am delighted with this new driving experience.
It is difficult to read the panel consisting of the clock, temperature, etc.
Super fun! You'll get lots of looks and people will stop you and ask what is it. Great engine and great mileage. Back seat has lots of leg room for adults and is very comfortable. The sound system is very impressive too! The only draw back is the dash could be a little higher for a better view for taller drivers and the numbers for the average mileage / range/ instant mileage, the clock, and the outside tempature are a little hard to read during the day. But this is the most fun car I've ever own. I highly recommend this car!
Style! Great fuel economy! Very comfortable.
Dash could be a little higer for a better view and the center dash numbers need to be brighter in daylight.
2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
This is the first convertible that I've owned and I absolutely love it! It's a beautiful car on the outside and very stylish on the inside. The ride is smooth and quieter than I expected for a soft top. The seats are very comfortable and the sound system is nice... basically like sitting in your living room chair, listening to your stereo. Reviewers on other sites complain about the lack of sports car performance on this car, but this not a sports car, its a touring car with extra horses. Lastly, the price is right for those like me, looking for luxury at a reasonable price. It even uses regular 87 octane gas! This car strikes just the right balance between practical and fun.
The smooth and quiet ride, and all the second looks that this car gets. The fact that it doesn't have to have premium gas, and the gas mileage is great, so far.
The designers/engineers need to come up with a solution to the poor visibility that the headrests in the back create.
