"The "my Rating" above, notwithstanding, the minuses are a cheap visor:no slider, no second front visor (a la Buick Ultra), and when the driver moves it to the driver side window, it slaps you in the side of the head on left turns at intersections; the odometer reading is almost microscopic; the passenger seat bottom is too severe to set items relatively flat; front center armrest is short, and, of course, the usual 2DR annoyances. I'm curious why Toyota stopped production. It was a winner."

best vehicle ever!

"I have had 2 Solaras. Both were excellent cars. Wished they were still making them. I have never had anything but a 2 door vehicle, so I am disappointed that I can't get another Solara."

"I'm the original owner and have driven this car for 9.5 years. Love it. Only 2 problems I've had are power steering pump replaced at 137,000 miles. Cracked leather on the lower dash and panel just above the glove box. I was told by my Toyota Mechanic that this is a factory defect, and that Toyota might give you some contribution (up to $700) toward getting it fixed."

"I have owned MANY cars and I have to tell you that this is my ALL TIME favorite!!! My daughter will be driving soon and thinks that I'm going to buy a new car and she's going to get my car. NOT!!! It only has 64,000 miles on it and I'm going to drive it for MANY more years! It still looks and runs like brand new!!! No trade-in, sale or hand-me-down for my Prissy Pearl!!!"

Very happy 10 years later

"This car owes me nothing. The only time I considered selling was when it was not handling well in poor weather conditions. I Purchase new tires and it's as good as new, better in fact. Invest in "better" all season, with water shedding capabilities and you'll be very happy."
