Second Solara

This is my 2nd Solara convertible. I bought a 2008 brand new and got rid of it after a year because I had an itch for a fancier car. Huge mistake. I just bought a used 2008 Solara SLE convertible with only 2,000 miles on it and it is wonderful. It fits my 6'1 frame, drives beautifully and is really the perfect car. It's not a Porsche or BMW or other high performance car. It is a smooth, well-constructed piece of heaven.

All this and a bag of chips

This is my first non BMW car in 10 years. This is also my first Toyota ever. I am very surprised about the quality. Ride is a little noisy but it's a convertible. Other that that I love this car, smooth ride and with the top down it is the most fun car I have ever owned. Fits a family of four comfortably & I am lost without the nav. Besides normal maintenance have not had a problem since the day I rolled it off the lot, and I drive 150 miles a day.

Decided to go with Solara for reliablity and comfort. Also CarMax gave me an excellent price for the car and color availability. Friends noticed that I was getting more tan these days. Drives very smooth and silky.

I bought this car for a great price towards the end of February. It's not the top of the line model but it has the moonroof, 6 disc, and the alarm system. Yes, there is some tranny lag and no, I haven't yet taken it in for the re-flash as I don't think that it will affect it much anyway. I've found that the slow shifts do not occur when the shifter is in manual shift mode & I'm having a blast shifting in manual through town and when merging. Gas MPG has improved @30 MPG combined with 4200 miles which is very acceptable being that my 05 XB gets 33 mpg. The Solara rides very smooth, the front strut tie bar keeps the front end flat and the trunk is huge. Headlights are great & cd display dim.

The car of my dreams

This is a great car but then I knew it would be. It is a lot of fun to drive and living in southern AZ means the top can be down more often than not. The car is in great shape for its age with hardly any door dings and interior 'roughage'. It gets good mileage especially out west where the roads are straight and there are little hills! The nav system is easy to program and I also like the convenience of a 4 cd changer. The top is a little worn but still has several years left in it and to have lasted 9 years is great as far as I am concerned. I have had no issues with the car so far and we did take it on a long road trip to CO. I find the car to be very comfortable for me but my 6' husband isn't quite as comfortable. The only negative is the smaller rear window as there is a big blind spot when the top is up. It is the design of the top and the rear window is as big as it can be so I will just be really careful when backing up. I plan to have this car for a long, long time!
