Default Camry V6 - Leather - No Moonroof?

Greetings:

I wish to purchase a new Camry V6 with leather, but without a
moonroof. (I need the headroom.) Does the factory make such a model?

Thanks!

Hi,

A few years ago, I attempted to order a well-equipped Camry V-6 with no
sunroof. The dealer explained to me that they are made with groups of
equipment that "most people want". If one wanted alloy wheels and better
tires plus leather seats, then one must perforce get a sun roof.I was
told that I could special order a vehicle with no sunroof, but that it
would cost MORE to get it without a sun roof than with one. I drive a
Camry with a sun roof that I have never opened.

Regards,

Morton

Sun Roofs are for short drivers.
A sun roof takes approximately one inch of head room. One less inch
of head room makes a big difference to a tall person.
Several years ago, I was very interested in a beautiful red Toyota
Solara. It had a sun roof. I sat down in the seat and my head was
touching the sun roof. The seat was adjusted as low as it could go.
I told the seller I could not buy his car because of the sun roof. It
was a very nice car and a more than reasonable price. Sure hated to
let that car get away but I value my neck.

That about sums it up. But besides the problem of losing an inch or so
of headroom, air and water leaks, etc. there is the problem that I don't
like driving with the sun beating down on me.

For a few weeks one summer, years ago, I drove my aunt's Dodge Dart with
the sun roof. About the only time I used it was on balmy nights, and at
the drive in movie (this was about 1980) on a hot night. It was nice for
that, but otherwise, who needs it?

Now, I like the look of a convertible, but again, I don't like driving
with the sun beating down on me. And, with either a sun roof or
convert., you have the traffic noise. I prefer the AC and the windows up
so I don't have to hear the outside noise!

I haven't seen the moonroofs on the Camry.

Our Avalon has one, however. This moonroof is inset, so you
actually gain a little headspace with it. And it has the sliding shade
so that there is no sunlight on your head unless you want to open it.

We didnt order it either, but dont object to it. We seldom use it.
