Pros

Fun to drive, great build quality, nice looking, quick

Cons

Throttle lag and the automanual slushbox takes hella time to shift in manual mode.

My Car: Batmobile. — I could have done better for the price, but I thought for my first car, getting a nice, solid Toyota would be good. It's pretty quick, but of course not a rally car or anything. It also drives a bit too smoothly, there's some throttle lag, and they added another unnecessary air filter thing to dull the engine noise, which I will take out soon (doesn't damage the car, it's just a noise dampener). The automanual/tiptronic or whatever you call it is basically a slushbox - takes forever to shift, which contributes to the throttle lag. One thing I hate is that it has virtually no aftermarket support - I can't really change it besides a basic intake mod... Oil change every 2-3k miles, not a hassle at all. Mileage is pretty cool, about 28 highway if I actually drive like a normal person. I've been running it on 87 octane though it does even better on premium (it's great with both). Oh, and it saved my ass in an accident... which could have been fatal. This car is really fun to drive, especially with the top down.

Pros

Leather interior, sun roof, and 6 disk JBL  cd player

Cons

Large gas tank, lol

Toyota Solara — I love my car because it is fast and sporty. It handles great as it has seventeen inch rims and low profile tires. I costs a little to pay for as it is a 40,000 dollar car brand new. It is very fun to drive as well as reliable and worth the money!

Looks, comfort, features

Sluggish at slow speeds, body construction, engine noiser than my previous Solara.

2004 Toyota Camry Solara Sle V6 — It looks great from the inside and outside. It's comfortable to drive. It's very smooth on the highway. It feels numb and sluggish in city driving. I always have warning/maintenance lights on and the door hinges are failing so the doors are falling off. Very safe car to drive.

Pros

Great car to daily drive. Really quiet, and really comfortable for a car that starts just a little under $20,000. Can't compare daily driven comfort to other cars in this price range.

Cons

Unlike what the name suggests, it is not a sports car. It can become a good sports car, but this requires a lot of financial dedication and time. For those who want all of what this car has to offer, start by looking at what T.R.D. has to offer.

Good Daily Driver. — Great car to daily drive comfortably. If you are more concerned about gas mileage, get the I4 SE. If you want more power, get the SE V6 or the SLE V6 I have here. May not be everyone's favorite, but give it some time, and it will grow on you. I've added some aftermarket modifications to my own, and it's helped unlock some true latent ability hidden away in these great cars. This car is not a true sports car at first, and requires much work to make it a sport car. However, each improvement made to the car is a largely noticeable difference. It has had no major mechanical malfunctions, but small issues like fluid leaks and electrical sensor malfunctions has taken it's fair share on finances.

Good First Car — Not a bad car with the 4-cylinder, a little slow off the line, but still not a bad car. Built very well no problems yet.

Terrific Gas Mileage
It's been called the $20k Lexus

Cons

Need Tint in Florida!

My Favorite Car So Far — Terrific Car. Should have bought the V6, but now with the rise in gas prices, glad I have the 4 banger. Only issue is that the interior faded and one seat had a mismatched panel of cloth. Best Car I've ever owned.

Love The Leg Room And Trunk Space; Hate The Large Blind Spots On Both Sides. — I am not getting the gas mileage advertised -- 23 mpg is about the best in town, slightly more--perhaps 26--on the road. Handles well and takes curves beautifully. Large trunk space exceeds even that of a Cadillac. I love this car but scared to change lanes.
