My kids are desperate to drive this
beauty but this is Dad's "chickmobile"!
The car runs so quietly I have probably
torn a few teeth off the starter
thinking it has stalled! The front
strut mounts (as I see with others
owners) have both had to be replaced.
The ABS brakes are way too sensitive
and kick in at the least unevenness in
the road surface when braking. It is a
very comfortable drive for long
journeys and has only let me down once
with a dead battery. Had an window
motor blow up which scared the pants
off me but overall I would buy another
Solara, providing it has the same
quality interior as my 99.
Great looking car. I really like the
faux wood interior trim. Makes the car
feel rich to drive.
The car does lack weight so tends to
move around a bit when passing heavy
trucks or when the wind is strong. This
is probably not an issue in the V6.
