Camry (Solara) Coupe

 ModelCamry (Solara) Coupe
 What things have gone wrong with the car?Poor handling; too much roll on corners. After market sway bars are a must. Non-existent warrantee support. Defective steering design keeps the car from tracking straight.
Spongy brakes
 
 
 General comments?Pretty good value but way too many quality problems on delivery that were never fixed after repeated trips for warrantee service.
On delivery:
The tires and wheels were wrong for the option package that was on the car.(obviously swapped out by the dealer)

Brakes were spongy (this was fixed by bleeding)

Syncros clash shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear (never fixed)

Clutch chatters (never fixed)

Steering drifts to the left (never fixed after 8 attempts from 2 different dealers, letters to customer support and the President of Toyota North America)
I have heard every imaginable excuse for this. I cannot take this car on long highway trips - the fatigue from constantly pulling the steering wheel to the right is too much to take! I even tried to have an independent alignment shop correct the problem but they reported that it has insufficient Caster and it is unadjustable.
 Previous car'94 Camry (out handles the later models) '2002 Honda Accord - A pleasure to drive after battling with the steering on the Toyota.
