"This was a one owner car when I purchased it 2.5 years ago. It is one of the best cars that I have owned. The gas mileage and reliability is outstanding. Just a 4 cyl 2.2 motor however the car runs great and it was built well."

"This car looks good and drives good. The only complaint I have is the stereo and interior components are cheap. Doorhandles seat covers etc didn't hold up. I have owned the car 15 years. Replaced the top four times. Currently at 230,000 miles. Still cranks up first try every morning. Still drives and handles smooth as can be."

"This is the first time I have ever written a review on a vehicle. This car deserves to be recognized. I have just crossed the 320,000 mile mark. Same motor.. Same trans..Only had to replace timing belt ( didn't break - was recommended ) Couple of struts.... and that's it! The key to it's longevity was preventative maintenance and oil changes. I get compliments on this car ALL THE TIME.... It has been good to me to say the least.. I am considering buying another car very soon..... A vehicle is only designed to go so far... However I can almost feel my SOLARA yelling to me from the drive way.."NO ..NO ..NO I got another 200,000 on me easy.......LET"S ROLL!!"

Pros: "If you like cornering this car handles great."

Cons: "No Cons"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"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."

Pros: "Excellent smooth driving car"

"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."
