2008 Toyota Solara is a superb road car; its smooth ride is neither mushy nor devoid of road feel. You may find the steering to...
... be a bit heavy in the turns, but the overall feeling it transmits is one of precision and control with no notable play. Power for the Solara is provided by a robust 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine; rated at 155 horsepower, it's surprisingly quick for its size and actually quite responsive when teamed with the standard five-speed manual transmission. The really big news for the Solara is its excellent 3.3-liter V6 engine, which boasts 210 horsepower. V6-powered Solara's have a five-speed sequential automatic transmission that allows you the option of manually selecting gears.
