First released in 1999, the Toyota Camry Solara is available as a mid-size coupe or convertible and offers both 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmissions. Standard features include an 18.5 gallon gas tank, tire pressure monitoring and a rear spoiler. Available as an upgrade on coupe models, the power sunroof may stop working due to power failure or other issues, but can still be closed manually.
