2000 Toyota Solara SLE Coupe

"This car has been maintained by the book. oil changes, belts, transmission, coolant, detailed, garage kept, tires, all in perfect condition. Interior leather seats in perfect condition. A few dings and scratches but nothing serious. It has a transmission oil pump for towing 4 wheels down and comes with a near new bra. Never been in an accident. If Toyota still made them I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one."
