2006 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Coupe (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased my Solara in the Fall of 04. Although Toyota quality is apparent...small shortcomings have detracted from my enjoyment of the car. For whatever reason Toyota elected not to install "foldback" type outside rearview mirrors. When shopping or parking in tight spaces people try to fold back the mirrors. The compass windshield mirror vibrates over 60 MPH which produces a distorted image that is very annoying. The front seats are not as comfortable as they first appear...especially on longer trips. Lastly, the car has a "drive by wire" feature which causes a slight hesitation when you first depress the gas pedal...hard to get used to. Small complaints perhaps but they add up.

Best Features

My wife and I personally like the styling. The engine and transmission operate quietly...perhaps a bit too quietly as I sometimes can't tell if I started the engine. Gas performance is top rate for a car of this size. Color scheme is well balanced. Quiet ride with no "rattles". Quality materials.

Worst Features
