"I did a review at 325,000 miles. This one is just an update to note it's still doing well and nothing major has needed repair. I recently had the alternator rebuilt. The engine uses or leaks about a quart of oil every 5,000 miles. I plan to change the crankshaft seal during the next timing belt change and expect that will significantly reduce oil loss. The automatic transmission still works fine. I'm pushing onward, maybe to 500,000 miles!"

My 2002 Toyota Solara SLE

"I bought my '02 Solara SLE in Sept '01 I picked out every option available except soft top. I drove it every day until Oct '07 and now I only drive her in the summer. And when I do everyone thinks its a new car! Simply put Its just beautiful and show room quality. Besides brakes, battery, oil changes and a sensor changed out that's all I've ever done."

"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."
