"This car has been one very dependable car. Besides regular maintenance I have only replaced the EGR valve at 226,000 miles. At 200,000 miles I replaced the struts on all 4 corners, but other then that it has only been regular maintenance. You can not beat this car for reliability."

I love my Solara

"The only reason I am considering selling my Solara is because after 15 years I need a 4-car garage. My Solara drives like a dream. I enjoy driving this car -- it's so smooth and responds so well. I'm really torn."

"I saw tis vehicle at my mechanic's garage and was intrigued. It was very clean, with only 93,000 miles (owned by a senior citizen). I ended up purchasing this beauty in April 2014 for $4,600. It drives great especially on the highway. Beautiful leather interior. I get a lot of compliments on the styling. I feel I can get another 100,000+ miles easily if I do regular maintenance. After a year I still feel this is the smartest vehicle purchase I have ever made, and I've made many."

"I loved driving my car, I drove her for a long time. She was still running like a charm 14 years after being built. She had a few problems, but what car doesn't after a decade? She was a smooth ride, smooth brake, beautiful inside and outside, and helped me move from place to place. So fun to drive, top up or down. I only sold her because my job requires my to have the latest everything to appear successful (real estate). But I'm going to miss driving her. 10/10 would highly recommend the solara anytime."

"Drove it brand new off the showroom in the fall of 1998. I've kept it well maintained with service, and other than the parking lot dings, it is still a beautiful car. I have 295K miles and the only major work has been shocks. Other than the O2 sensors and tires, (at proper intervals) it has been the best car I've ever owned. I know she won't last forever, but I've yet to find a replacement I would like more!"
