"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."

I love this car!

"The Solara is dependable, comfortable, sleek and maximum red! Maintenance has been on a regular basis, and my grandchildren are fighting over who gets it! It is such a shame Toyota decided to stop making this model."

"I bought this car 9/2013 with $39,800 miles on it. The lines on the car are beautiful. I paid $1069 for the 6 year 100K warranty from Carmax that is transferable. The wheels have been totally refurbished and are like new. The tires were new when I bought it. One was recently replace bc of a road hazard. I had the windows tinted with lifetime warranty and also added a visor for the moon roof. I recently spent $900 to have the car gone over completely servicing the brakes, filters, coolant system, fuel system, ect. I'm selling the car bc I found a BMW that I have wanted for a long time that I could actually afford."
