After an extensive overhaul last year, there are no new changes for 2008.

About Toyota Solara

Big coupes with long, heavy doors seem to go in and out of style like yesterday's fashions. For a time it appeared as though the SUV would spell the end of the coupe, but the desire for smaller, more maneuverable vehicles, coupled with gasoline at three bucks a gallon, has given new life to the genre, and the 2008 Toyota Camry Solara is poised to capitalize. Big enough to comfortably fit four adults and delivering a level of fit and finish befitting a Lexus, the Solara is well suited to compete with its primary rivals, the new Honda Accord Coupe and Ford Mustang V6. The new Nissan Altima Coupe also plays in the league, although with a decidedly sportier attitude.

"Bought new in 2005 and it still looks and runs like new. The BEST car I've ever owned. It's no wonder Lexus took over building the Solara and marketing under the Lexus IS 250c name. A remarkable automobile. Performance is amazing and the gas milage is ureal (25 city 32 hwy). The engine is soooo quiet and with the top up you would swear you are in a Lincoln. In the years that I have owned this beauty I have only had to replace the tires. This car is going to be a Classic. If you have one...KEEP IT!"

"Great reliability, great ride, great fun with the top down. Low maintenance cost. If Toyota still made them we'd have a new one. We are looking to replace it as the technology advances in cars are so impressive and it's just time for a new ride. Not sure we'll be able to find another convertible with the great features of the Solara, not the least of which is the trunk which, even with the top down, can hold 2 sets of golf clubs and some luggage. Come on Toyota build this car again!"

"I bought the car new in 2004 and have driven it without issue ever since. The car handles well, is very comfortable and is easy on gas. I had a couple warranty repairs in the very beginning that were handled without question. Besides that only maintenance. I promised i would drive it to 200k miles once we passed 150k with ease.... I began looking for a replacement and was very sad to see they have discontinued the model. I have hauled Xmas trees, interior house doors, ladders... you name it -in that enormous trunk. I call it a gem because I do not know may people who have cars that hold up this well and still look this good! And this was supposed to be a bad quality year for Toyota."
