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


Lot of fun to show off and drive with
the top down! Have had several quality
issues including: paint peeling off the
rear!, gear shift module (plastic
component broke), alignment issues. All
within the first 5000 miles! Cowl shake
still noticeable. Stereo system is OK,
although not remarkable (it is no
Bose). Definately performs like a mid-
level family sedan rather than a sports
car. Would love to see the same size
and styling with a sportier suspension
system, and by all means, a manual
transmission! Averaging 21mpg in the
city and 27mpg on the highway. Sheet
metal "feel" is the worst of any car I
have owned.

Best Features

Love the exterior styling. Loads of compliments. Great rear seat for family or other adults. Very quiet engine.

Worst Features

Better sheetmetal. Very thin, several dents in first few thousand miles. Get rid of the removable antenna (nuisance). Automatic boot cover for the top. Manual cover looks good when on, but is rarely used due to the inconvenience. A manual transmission
