This has been the most hassle free vehicle I have ever purchased. All I have done is change the oil and 3 sets of tires. No other maintenance except coolant every 50k miles. If you can buy one, get it.
I have owned this awesome car for 3 years and have only needed to change the oil. Recently, I am having some suspension issues - not surprising after 100K miles. The CD player also died recently. I would definitely buy another!
Electric driver seat, auto everything, sun roof, 6-cd player.
I've run this car like no other. It has had a couple of minor problems but nothing major in 110K miles. Far and away the best car I've ever owned. Body still tight and fuel economy great, even in stop-and-go traffic. Engine looks almost new.
I bought this car used a few years ago with ~75000 miles. Turns out to be one of the best buys I've made. The Solara runs like a top. It's been nothing but reliable and remarkably sturdy. Even now with 105000 on the odometer the steering is still tight and it rides just as nice as the day I bought it. I had the 100000 mile service done at the dealer recently which set me back around $1000. Other than that I haven't had to do anything outside of gas/tires/oil change. Overall a very good car. Comfortable, relatively roomy, great gas mileage, superb reliability, even fast and steady on the highway. The only problem now is, what do I replace it with when it does wear out in 5 to 10 years?
Superb gas mileage. In $2 to $3 a gal. gasoline, that's a must. Other than that? Reliability, comfort, and styling.
The dashboard is quite boring. I see in the new models this has been somewhat rectified.
