2005 Toyota Camry Solara Convertible SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is still a delight to me every weekend when I drive it (I metro to work during the week). It is a real looker. Folks stare! Build quality is a daily joy. This was my first new car in 30 years and worth the wait.


Best Features

DVD NAV, cream colored leather interior (hard to find in a new car), powerful engine, spacious trunk. This design is a perfect base for more high end features for which I would have gladly paid.


Worst Features

More cabin illumination, power passenger seat, footwell and puddle lights, directional lights in mirrors, illuminated top and window switches (hard to find at night), factory installed satellite radio.

2005 Toyota Camry Solara Convertible SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I dreamed of owning a convertible, but never thought it practical until now. Comfortable leather, awesome features, enough ROOM for all (even my hubby at 6'4"), a back seat that is REALLY a back seat, and easy to use automatic controls for just about everything. The ride is smooth, almost feels like I am in a video game at times. I am most impressed with how quiet it is with the top up, I don't even realize it is a convertible, unless of course the top is down HA HA! GREAT JOB TOYOTA!


Best Features

Easy to use automatic top, steering wheel controls for 6cd changer/radio. Heated seat.


Worst Features

Only one concern: several different test drives with different Solaras, and now with mine, the car slips a little occasionally when excellerating from dead stop, doesn't continue after about 2nd gear. Suggestion: drivers seat set point for driver to automatically revert after others drive

Review

What an awesome car. Fun to drive, especially with the top down. Smooth ride. All the bells a whistles of a more expensive car with an affordable price. The only complaint is a major blind spot when the top is up.


Best Features

Love the convertible top. Easy to use. Great sound system.


Worst Features

Toyota needs to work on the blind spot and either lower the back headrests or enlarge the back window.

Review

The car looks great but with the top up and the fixed rear headrests its impossible to see out the rear window. The fit and finish of the body has panel and paint flaws where the plastic meets the metal,which the dealer refused to repair. The Conv top stitching was coming apart by the rear window, again no dealer help. The seat belts do not retract and the rear belts flap in the wind with the top down. The car has no side guard protection so you accumulate parking dings on the doors. The front slope of the car does not allow you to see the distance to the car in front when parking or entering a garage. The cover for the Conv top requires two people to install. Very disappointed


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Copy the BMW 3 series Conv
