Perfect Convertible

2008 Toyota Solara Jedidiah - Virginia 08/11/2012

Long term Toyota fan, though without any convertibles in current production I shopped all the brands. Considering size, features and Toyota quality/reliability I found myself strongly considering a Solara. The Lexus models were just too expensive, just like the Infinity. Miata, fun but small and I've had one of those....Struck gold in finding a 2008 Solara SLE with less than 6000 miles. Very well appointed, nice driver, handles well, the 3.3 liter is reasonably peppy and not too thirsty. Love the passenger area, front passengers have excellent space and the rear is comfortable for adults, not just children. The trunk is huge so no problem taking a trip with this car, it's Camry size so plenty of room. We have a 2010 Camry SE and the Solara is very similar. I also have a 2011 Tacoma and wish the Solara had the Tacoma 4.0 liter. No complaints with this car, though oddly the rear windows can't be opened by themselves. The leather is nice and the seat heaters will be appreciated in the Fall and Winter.

Best Car Ever

2006 Toyota Solara Pawleys Guy - Coastal South Carolina 01/14/2012

Having driven this wonderful car for almost 90,000 miles, we have found this car to be one of the best we have ever owned. We have had no...zero...problems with it. It is powerful comfortable and reliable and we get 27 MPG in spirited all around driving.

2007 Toyota Solara Convertible

2007 Toyota Solara MarciaMarciaMarcia - Sykesville, MD 11/20/2006

I traded in a 2004 version of the same car this summer as the mileage was getting a little high. There were several problems with the 2004 that Toyota addressed in the 2007. It was difficult to see out of the back window when the top is up due to the headrests. In the 2007, Toyota uses headrests that are open in the center. On the 2004, the convertible boot couldn�t be secured tightly and in fact, blew off, one time. In the new model, there are tethers to hold the boot in place. The only downside to the car is the ride over rough payment when the top is up. The car shakes and you can see the rear view mirror shake. However, the ride is greatly improved from the 2004 model. The quality of the materials in the car is superior. I thoroughly enjoy the car and wouldn�t hesitate to recommend it.
