"I love my 2004 Solara. I had bought a 1997 Camry new and when I drove it 150K miles, I gave it to my son. I have a 2004 Solara SE - the best car I have ever had! I regularly change the oil - and use synthetic oil - and I've only replaced the brakes-that's it! I wish Toyota would bring the Solara back - a hybrid or electric model would be wonderful! BTW, I'm purchasing a 2005 Solara this week...so my hubby will drive my 2004 and I'll drive the 2005 which only has 53K miles on it."
"I have had several cars from Honda to Volvo and this car far exceed both of them. I have over 250 thousand miles and I have not had any problems with it. I think I did the breaks once in the ten years I have owned it. This has been my best buy. I wish Toyota had a newer model I would purchase in a heartbeat."
"This one will go another 100,000, but top, the paint, the lights, the dash, the weather stripping were shabby in 2 years and now completely ruined. I have had 2 other convertibles sit outside in the very same spot..Sebring..all black and they held up...this one did not. Also, in heavy rain it hydroplanes badly...
There is no excuse for paint and interior not to hold up."
