I've owned my Solara for 2 years now and I still get a thrill each time I drive it. It's a perfect combination of sportiness, luxury, reliability and price. A car can't be all things to all people, but this one fits me perfectly. It's very comfortable to drive and the back seat can easily hold 3 people. The sound system is great and the automatic climate control keeps the cabin very comfortable. In 2 years, all I've done is routine maintenance to my Solara.
My favorite feature is the smooth, quiet ride, the smell of the leather interior and the looks I still get while driving my Solara. People still compliment me on its styling.
The 2000 model didn't have a power passenger seat or key fob remote trunk release as options. These should be available on a car in this price range.
