About Toyota Solara

The 2008 Toyota Camry Solara Convertible offers genuine four-passenger seating, a spacious trunk and a velvety-smooth ride for about the same price as an entry-level premium sedan. Available in three trim levels, all powered by a smooth and efficient V6 engine, the Solara Convertible offers enough variation and content to satisfy all but the most demanding enthusiasts. The power-operated convertible top works effortlessly and is padded to help isolate wind and road noise. The only other vehicle able to rival the Solara in the areas of price, passenger comfort and cargo space is the new Chrysler Sebring, a car that offers the options of a retractable hard top but cannot match the Solara's impressive resale value and overall build quality.

Nice car, yet falls short of expectations

"First of all, we like our 2004 SLE V6 Coupe which we purchased new in April 2004. The styling and interior quality are what attracted us to the car. It is almost completely free of rattles after 35,000 miles. We find it is a good highway car. And we are pleased with how well the car is holding its value. There are a few things that annoy us about the car: the paint chips way too easily (Arctic Frost White), and the automatic transmission is very sluggish in how it shifts - so much so that it really takes away from the performance of the V6 engine. If GM or Ford built such a sloppy transmission, they would be ridiculed. The dealership has been unresponsive about the transmission except to say the new ones are better. (Nice try sales people!) The tires had to be replaced at 33,000 miles; we have been told we are lucky they lasted that long! Both the new tires and the old have been difficult to balance. There is vibration above 65 MPH. And there is more road noise coming from the trunk and rear seat area than is acceptable in any car at this price point. At 6-feet-2, the moon roof really makes head room tight. Our other vehicle, a 2005 Chev Silverado pickup, has a better shifting transmission, better paint, less road noise, and no tire/wheel vibrations. This is my third Toyota, and, frankly, I expected better. Yet, the styling, interior appointments and reliability are such that we still like the car despite the issues identified."

"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."
