Cons: "Leaking cam cover gaskets are common"

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

"I bought my 2000 Solara used with 113,000 miles on it. I have replaced the shocks, front tie rods, water pump and thermostat (preventative), and the cam cover gaskets. I can't think of anything else beyond plugs, oil, filters, brake pads, battery, and timing belt maintenance. Original parts include the starter, AC, automatic transmission, exhaust system, and the engine itself. The interior is leather and has also worn very well. I change my own oil and estimate it may burn 1/2 quart between 6,000 mile oil changes. I'm shooting for 400,000 miles."

Pros: "great gas mileage, smooth driving"

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

"I bought my 99 Solara in 04, with 96K miles. It is now over 355K miles. I have had to replace the motor for the power window on the driver's side, the starter once and other than the regular wear and tear on any vehicle it has been great having it. I just keep the regular oil changes, and it hasn't broken down on me (knock on wood). Everyone that drives it, loves it even though it's 15 years old. Drives smooth and for the price, I have definitely spent my money well. :)"

"Its been a great car. I've owned it for 12 years and the only thing I had to do was replace the starter. The only reason I'm thinking of selling it is because I just want something newer."
