I want to keep this car forever

by from Michigan on January 6, 2010

The Solara has the smoothest and quietest ride of any car I've ever driven. I have an SLE V6 coupe. Visibility out of the rear takes a little bit of time to get used to because of the rising belt line towards the rear of the car. The suspension is a great balance between comfort and sportiness; the highway ride is pretty soft but the car can also be pushed through tight corners and freeway onramps. The JBL audio system sounds very good, and its bluetooth connectivity comes in handy. Headroom for taller people can be limited, especially in the back seat for passengers over 6 feet tall. There is tons of legroom in the front seats. The steering is extremely light, and it is possible to make a turn with one finger. The turning circle is pretty tight which makes it easy to maneuver the car. The 3.3 liter V6 is very quiet and smooth with good everyday driveability and plenty of passing power. Long interstate trips have yielded 30 mpg, and everyday driving usually gets around 20 mpg. Acceleration sometimes does not feel very aggressive, but I think that's because the car is so smooth, so light-footed driving takes a little practice. VSC and traction control helps especially in winter driving. All season tires do fine in snow and ice but winter tires are great.

Great car to drive dependable and fun

by from North Carolina on October 22, 2008

The Solara gives a very comfortable ride while still be fun to drive around. This car doesn't blow your hair around while driving with the top down. Would recommend this car to family and friends.

Best convertible I've owned.

by from Cincinnati, OH on August 24, 2007

For the smoothest ride, suggest lower tire pressure. (Not their recommended higher level). You would not know it is a convertible unless the top is down. Rear window difficult to to see through. Only ...

Best Value in a Car

by from Lawrence, KS on January 5, 2015

Great Value for the money. The styling is nice and I especially like the compass on the rear view mirror.

I researched the Toyota Solara on line and found the one I ended up buying on the internet. It is so easy to buy a car this way. It cuts out the hassle of purchasing a car. I would buy this car, again, BUT if I had a family who traveled with me all the time, I would buy the Camry (four door), even though, it is not as sporty.
