"I purchased my Toyota Solara brand new. It's the light silver blue color which I absolutely love, it's completely reliable, has just the right amount of power when needed, comfortable, roomy, classy, reasonably priced ... if I could give it more than a 10 on every category, I would!"

"So sad they quit making them. My first one had a run in with a deer. I was impressed on how the car handled and the damage was limited to external only. I updated with the last years production of the series, but sadly downgraded. Hope to keep it for a collector item."

"I traded in my 2002 Hyundai Elantra for a newer car and was hoping for a pretty new car since the dealership teased us with a 2010-11. When we went in for the third time to see and they told us they had a 2005 Toyota with two doors. Since we give people rides a lot i did not think i would like the car. Then i saw the car and first i thought it looked a lot newer than they said it was. We have a sun roof, JBL audio, 6 disc changer, leather seats and heated front seats. I looked at the inside and it was so beautiful, i mean we have 8 speakers in the car and it sounds great!!! It was just as nice as the new car that they had teased us with and the back seat was bigger than our Elantra's. I love this car so much. When we bought the car we showed our friends one has a 2010 ford focus and one a Chevy Cobalt around 2010 as well and they both wanted our car. As most people who commented, I wish they made this car still. I think i will drive this car for years, i dont want to trade it in."

"I bought this car two years ago and it only has 32,000 miles on it to date. (Bought it from my aunt who really did not drive it much) My only less than 10 rating was on aceleration as it feels like a heavy car and it takes a bit of pushing the gas to get it moving. But! Once moving it is a dream road cruiser. Very comfortable and quite."

"I have averged at times 20,000 miles a year. keeping my car serviced at the times when its needed has kept my car running like new. I still get about 36-38 avg miles a gallon on the freeway, about 26-29 abg in town. I believe the sleek style of this car is still in style. Keeping good care of this car I believe will keeping it running well into the 200,000 mile range. Anyone who would like a great 2dr cpe car, this one is one of the greatest, it even has pleanty of room in the back seat and a large trunk. I wish they still made this car"
