"A wonderful car! My car is a 2004 with 194,000 miles and has never been in the shop for any reason. I replaced the brakes myself and bought new tires. That is it. Drives just like it was new and is as quiet as day one. too bad Toyota does not make it any longer because I would buy another one."

Love this car!

"I have loved this car from the day we bought it. I would probably buy a new model if Toyota still made them. Drives like a big car, very sturdy and comfortable on long drives. Could be peppier, has slow acceleration compared to newer cars but ride is smooth and luxurious. Wish there was a hard top version."

"Great reliability, great ride, great fun with the top down. Low maintenance cost. If Toyota still made them we'd have a new one. We are looking to replace it as the technology advances in cars are so impressive and it's just time for a new ride. Not sure we'll be able to find another convertible with the great features of the Solara, not the least of which is the trunk which, even with the top down, can hold 2 sets of golf clubs and some luggage. Come on Toyota build this car again!"

"Bought my 2007 SLE convertible with 100,000 miles in 2010 and now have 202,000 miles. This car has been a pleasure to own and completely trouble-free! I change the oil, tires, brakes and it just goes and goes. I wanted a more sporty feel so I upgraded the to a set of lightweight 20" wheels (225/35-20 tires) and upgraded the suspension with Eibach springs and KYB GR-2 struts and it made a HUGE difference in handling. I would recommend this car to anyone."
