Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe

I purchased this Solara in 2002 and it had 75,000 miles on it. It now has 200,000 miles and has been Uber Reliable. I put one timing belt on it and a starter that I got off eBay for 60 bucks. This car has never failed me and is as smooth today with 200k as it was with 75k. I plan to drive it another 200k and I think it will make it just fine.

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe

Bought my Solara new in 1999 and have had nothing but satisfaction with the vehicle. Regardless I expect to go WAY past 250,000 miles with this car. Just follow the maintenance schedule and take care of it, and it'll be the most reliable vehicle you've ever owned. Would I buy another? In a New York Minute. But this time, I will find a better dealer.

This is the best car I have ever owned in over 40 years of buying them. I like some of the other reviewers are sorry that Toyota has decided to discontinue this model. I would have bought another if this one ever quits on me. I like coupes and it really fills the bill for me. The 4 cylinder has been just fine. Good on gasoline and has been very dependable.




Good deal

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe

I bought my car new and have put 132,000 miles on it. It has been a great car. This car is very reliable with very good gas mileage, ave 28-29 mpg (driving combo of 1/3 city and 2/3 freeway).

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe

On Oct 2006, I raved about this car. (see comments). Just turned 100k, didn't have to change brakes (front) until 98k. Vacuum sensor for gas tank has show up as check engine light twice in last 6 mos. Have always had a slight clunk in right door - dealer never found the reason.




Great car

Vehicle: 1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe

I bought the car used from relatives in '05, with 203,000 miles on it, and it's now running 260,000 with no problems. I had to replace brakes, rotors, and struts when I bought it (blame it on a bad mechanic that my uncle used to use) and only have replaced spark plugs ($30 from Toyota) and spark plug tube seals ($12 from Toyota). It's a great car, great ride, performance is lower because it's a 4-cyl. Great first car.
