The Solara: Sporty look with Camry reliability

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

I purchased my 2006 Solara 2 years ago with only 42,000 miles on it. Quiet ride, interior space of a regular sedan (but with only 2 doors). It had only a CD player and no AUX in cord, so I had a Bluetooth installed to play music from my phone. Engine doesn't feel super sporty. Seats are not very comfortable. There is an electric back support adjuster on the driver's side, but it's too high up for my 5'4' frame. Besides replacing the car battery, it's had no major problems so far. Sometimes there is a slight lag in acceleration after an idle at a light. That said, this is NOT a sports car - it runs like the 'Camry Solara' sedan it is. I purchased it because I wanted the reliability of the Camry engine (which it has), with a bit of a sleeker look - which I'm thoroughly pleased with! I still admire the looks of the car - it seemed a bit ahead of its time in design. For me, the reliability and looks of the car outweighed any negatives. I'm going to keep this one for as long as I can!

My highlights of the Toyota solara.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

I love my car because of speed performance. If you keep up with the maintenance, this car is extremely reliable in all seasons. The computers work great at alerting when tire pressure is low, oil changes, an any engine problems. It has an alarm system, child locks, air bags, cruise control, place to put glasses, 2 compart middle piece, lock glove compartment, door lock when car is in movement, and stylish (sporty look).

My vehicle performs well and has some good features like the sun roof.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

My vehicle performs well. It performs well. I love the sun roof! The only problem I have found is when needing to do repairs it can be difficult to find the parts or they are too expensive. Otherwise I have found I like the turn radius and features like cruise control and buttons on the steering wheel to control the stereo system. I wish there was more than one way to get into the trunk other than just by the key.

Toyota Camry Solara best car I've ever owned. Comfy convertible, looks nice

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

Convertible Camry by far the best car I've ever owned . 2006 bought used in 2016, never had a problem, mechanically or otherwise. Comfortable and nice, I would buy another if necessary. Streamlined, attractive smooth on side streets and highways. Gets around great in the snow and heavy enough to control on icy streets.

It's very functional and easy to maneuver.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

The car is still in great shape and works like a pro. While it is small and seating may feel cramped at times, it's very functional. Parking is also easier to find since it's a small car. The roof opens up which is awesome in the summers. I do wish that the ability to recline seats would be a better option.

My Camry solara se is a excellent coup car for 2006.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

I have Toyota Camry solara se 2006 my car has a good motor capacity. Suspension is great. However, I do not like 2 doors car. Next time I will definitely buy a four doors car. Seat capacity is great for a sports car. Gear system is excellent. I can drive as a manual gear inside city traffics.

Reliable car even with high miles

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

Very reliable, do not like that it's a coupe, I like 4 doors vehicles better. I personally think that it is too large and the interior is not the most comfortable. The wheels, always seem to be an issue. As far as the motor goes it seems to be working just fine even with high miles on it.

My solara need some help.

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

It has some issues with shocks and its too small. I prefer a 4 door to a 2 door. Also 8 wish it had better gas mileage. I wish it had Bluetooth. I wish it had a CD player. I think overall the car is too small and too old for my liking. I wish to buy a bigger car or a van.

Toyota Solara are the best

2006 Toyota Camry Solara SE

It's a great car, good mpg, runs smooth. CD player, cold ac, heat blows hot, comfortable seats, sunroof, power windows, remote start. Starts up every day. Great for road trips across the country, great on gas with highway mileage. This is all around a great car.
