Toyota Camry Solara by far my favorite car!!

This is actually my favorite vehicle so far. It is an amazing car. There is plenty of room for passengers to be comfortable. The truck is very spacious. I can fit 2 bicycles into my trunk. It is great on gas. I can fill up and drive for an entire week probably around 300-350 miles. It rides very smooth and has comfortable seats.

Its utilitarian at best. It gets the job done, but its uncomfortable, frustrating and squished. On the bright side, the MPG is higher than other cars so I appreciate that, I would trade more comfort for a lower MPG.

The comfort is terrible. The seat sits low, and the shifter is in the way of the controls. Also, the gas tank is on the drivers side, and it's a coupe with long doors, so every time I buy gas, Im always banging the door into the gas pump. Stupid. All Gas tanks should be on the passenger side of the car, period.

It is very reliable. I haven't had any issues with it.

I like how roomy that the car is. A dislike is that the car only has 2 doors, which makes it hard for getting car seats in and out. The other dislike is that due to the age, my car is not Bluetooth capable. I like how my car has a 6 disc CD player, so for long road trips I can use that instead of the radio.
