2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


The test drive in the rain with the top up impressed me. The quietness and the solid, confidence inspiring handling were very impressive. Love the gauge illumination at night too. The 6's performance seems fine to me and great gas mileage too! Car trip with only 200 miles on the odo got 30+ mostly highway mpg at 70. Top down on the highway is fine too- not too much wind and able to talk in a normal tone w/o windscreen. The nav system is not as intuitive as my Garmin Nuvi but does have its pluses. Voice activation commands with the top down is iffy. Luckily this can be done manually. Radio is nice, rear visibility is ok with mirrors and seat adjusted properly. Tilt & tele wheel is great.

Best Features

The top, the quietness, solid build and great handling feel like my former Lexus. Performance and gas mileage are great. Like the ability to lock the trunk and glovebox access and the valet key. Cool lit gauges. Comfortable multi adjusting front seats and roominess of the back seat.

Worst Features

Nav system-put a Garmin in! Headlight switch, top, dash, all windows and light leveling switches are hidden by the steering wheel. Can't believe that Toyota doesn't have roadside assistance unless you buy the expensive vehicle maintenance package. Auto up DS window.
