I loved everything about that car but needed a bigger vehicle so traded it in. I have missed the car everyday so I purchased a younger version, a 2007 in the same beautiful white and tan.

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.744 (146 reviews) "2008 Solara Convertible. Last year made by Toyota. This is one convertible that will surprise most people. It's as quiet with the top up as most hard-tops. With the top down and the windows up, it's a smooth and really pleasant ride. Toyota quality is all over this car. Our search was for a convertible and with the Toyota brand, we know it will do well for us for many years to come. One thing that people must realize, though, about the car; there is a bit of a magnified shake in the body of the car in certain situations. Everyone from Car and Driver Magazine to personal reviews note this effect. It's the result of not having the hard top to add structure to the frame. But we have quickly learned to ignore that as a natural character of the vehicle. One thing we've noticed as well since buying the car is that people who buy one don't ever seem to get rid of them like with other cars. They buy them and keep them for many years. Again, that's part Toyota quality, and part pleasure of ownership. Highly recommended car!"

There is plenty of power and the ride is extremely smooth. There is a little wind noise with the convertible top as would be expected but not as much as other convertibles I have ridden in. If this car ever wears out, I will immediately buy another one just like it. I don't think you can do any better for a 4 seat convertible and I am 6'6" tall. Plenty of leg and head room. I highly recommend this car!"

2007 Toyota Solara Ragtop Girl - West Palm Beach, FL 12/29/2012

COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BETTER ON PRICE

2008 Toyota Solara HOLLY JUSTUS - locust grove, GA 09/04/2016

Toyota Solara Overview

The Toyota Camry Solara, sibling to the popular, midsize Camry, is available as a convertible or coupe. Popular for its reliability, quietness, and interior comfort, the Solara outperforms many vehicles of similar styles.

Across each of its generations, the Solara's rear-seat room is generous enough for family transits while remaining feature-heavy for town road lovers. Impressive and smooth, the Toyota Camry Solara packs an impressive four-cylinder or V6 in newer models. Reasonably priced during every year, the Solara remains an incredibly popular used car too.

As a convertible, the Solara's traditional fabric is iconic across the industry. Its departure from retractable hardtops is notable, as is its prioritization of interior comfort. Make no mistake: The Solara may exist at the price scale's lower end, but it still carries luxury components.

Toyota Solara History

The all-new Camry Solara sport coupe emerged in 1999, becoming Toyota's newest sport specialty segment entry. The Solara, aimed at consumers entering high-earning years, was designed to invoke nostalgia in sports-car-lovers while touching upon fine interior inclusions. The Camry Solara soon became the first Toyota Division model to utilize Toyota's North American manufacturing facilities.

Over time, the Camry's production shifted to Toyota's award-winning Cambridge, Ontario, location. In the 2000s, the Solara utilized either a V6 or four-cylinder engine while featuring either a four-speed or five-speed electronically controlled transmission. In addition, much of the Solara's history has included a four-wheel, all-independent MacPherson suspension, rear stabilizer bars, anti-vibration sub-frames, and a 16-inch alloy wheel upgrade package.

How It Drives

The Solara prioritizes comfort and consistent drives, maximizing smooth transitions with a stable, yet consistent, engine. Some Solara users report lacking excitement when opting out of high-end features, as the Solara's navigation system and stability control are mainstays of the sports vehicle department.

Earlier Solaras, while also consistent, may pack less "punch" when transitioning between low and high speeds. While earlier models pack 135-hp, four-cylinder engines, both four-speed automatic and five-speed manual transmissions may be lackluster if not equipped to a V6. The V6, however, does pick up easily on highways and city streets - giving drivers total control, stability, and input power.

Used Toyota Solara Value

Compared to other used vehicles of similar size, the Toyota Camry Solara packs incredible reliability and value. Historically known for requiring minimum maintenance, the Solara's ride doesn't dull over time. While convertible-lovers may experience higher noise resonation in earlier Solara models, other used cars lack the pickup achieved by the Solara in a year-to-year arena.

Value-wise, the Solara's interior still succeeds. Some users experience dash degradation in models released before 2005, however. Solara repairs and upgrades are cheap in comparison to other models, and even a four-cylinder Solara engine can last with minimal attention. Tires, brakes, oil changes, and light bulbs are frequent maintenance areas.

Design & Performance

In any year, the Toyota Camry Solara packs smooth performance. Older models may suffer from a noisy rear suspension, but minor repairs can remedy any assembly shortcomings. The Solara's interior stereo performance is touted throughout the industry, renowned for its superb ride.

Lighting, too, is prioritized in each Solara model. While the Solara lacks heated seats and Bluetooth connectivity in older miles, its interior still packs hands-free phone options and up-to-date Sirius and Pandora Radio options. Many Solaras achieve 30 mpg, which provides for consistent performance divorced from high gas prices. Stylish and affordable, lesser Solara models still achieve an average of 21 mpg on city streets.

Powertrain & Engine

The Solara is available in four-cylinder and V6 versions, backing either a multi-point EFI or sequential multi-point EFI fuel system in older models. In addition, the Solara's engine features:

  • A 2.4-liter, 16-valve aluminum alloy block in four-cylinder engines
  • A 3.0-liter, 24-valve aluminum alloy block in V6 engines
  • Displacement between 2,362 and 2,995 cc in older models
  • Electric ignition system in all models
  • ULEV emission control in most models

The Toyota Camry Solara's powertrain utilizes four-wheel drive and five-speed manual transmissions with four-cylinder engines. Meanwhile, its V6 offers a four-speed automatic transmission and Touch Select four-by-four driving in most models.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Available as either a two-door convertible or a two-door coupe, the Solara's body is both lightweight and durable. Post-2004 Solara models, however, feature a curved body to promote luxury. Again, the Solara lacks typical hardtop convertible roofs, and may suffer in harsh weather conditions.

Inside, many Solaras pack a navigation system and XM radio for comfort. With WMA CD playback capabilities and MP3 support, most used Solara models are praised for their comfort. Newer Solara models offer voice-activated navigation and Bluetooth Connectivity in SLE V6 models. Solara Sports Package owners benefit from a perforated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable leather seats, and re-tuned steering accessibility.
