1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Everything!


Suggested Improvements

None I hope my next Camry is this good!

1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

I like the size and weight of this car and how dependable it has been. Large gas tank and plenty of trunk room.


Suggested Improvements

I probably would not change anything. I would not have changed the body style to the after 2003 style.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Overall, beautiful riding vehicle. Paint immaculate, still looks like a new car inside and out.


Suggested Improvements

As I said previously, it should have been a 4 door model.

More headroom for tall people.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Reliability. Looks are fine even for an older model. Low cost of ownership.


Suggested Improvements

None I can think of.
