Solara Perfect Choice If Looking For Reliable And Comfortable Car — The car was outstanding choice taking into consideration that I was in States for just few months and looked for reliable and trustworthy car. Gas consumption is very good, no technical problems at all. I highly recommend it for those looking for not the fastest one but most reliable and comfortable car I had.

Perfect Car For A New Driver Or Commuter — I have found this car is typically what you expect from a four cylinder toyota, good on gas and pretty peppy when it needs to be, you will enjoy the JBL radio as well as the very cold a/c power features, the moon roof and the great level of driver visibility make it a very nice car. Once you own a toyota you quickly come to the conclusion it was money well spend and you can look forward to many many more miles on the road.

Pros

This car is extremely reliable. Only one minor issue (bad solenoid) in the twelve years that I owned it.

Cons

This is not an ideal family car. The doors are heavy (for children) and awkward when using a car seat.

Reliable Car With All Around Power And Fuel Efficiency — The 2001 Toyota Solara V6 coupe is a great all-around car for young professionals who want more power for their commute without sacrificing too much fuel efficiency. The interior has some nice touches and it feels higher end than you might expect. The back seat is roomier than most other coupes, and the cabin offers plenty of head room for taller drivers.

Comfortable Car — Fun to drive, feels luxury in it, very comfortable, sometimes frustrate about handling. Gas mileage of car was not very good, around 17-20 mpg. The cost of fixing the car was really cheap, just like all other Japanese cars. Overall this car was very enjoyable!

Pros

It's a convertible, it's got a V6, it's fun.

Cons

Noisy with the convertible roof, not great for families due to limited backseat space.

Great Convertible For Young People Or Those With Kids Out Of The House — Owned this car for 12 years and it was a great car to drive but with a family it is not as convenient as we could barely fit 2 of them in the backseat. With the convertible roof it is a lot of fun in the summer and because it's one of the biggest convertibles out there it definitely does not feel cramped.

Huge trunk, nice styling, great controls, tons of power, nothing ever breaks.

Great Sporty Car — This car is great if you want a performance vehicle that is different from the rest and easy to own. Trunk is much larger than most sedans, in crown Vic land! It has Camry reliability with 200 horses and a tight suspension. Feels very safe with its high belt line and side airbags. Traction control is great in winter weather. I've loved this car but with baby on the way it's time to get something with more doors.

It's Mine :d — It's acceleration could use some help but what can you expect from a heavier car like that. Regular repairs are required. It's so much fun i feel like I'm flying when i drive. It's got an awesome ride, so smooth. I love the sport package too, it makes the car even better to drive then usual.

Great handling; very comfortable

190hp is good but not good enough, unless it was a TRD Solara

No Regrets Having A Car Like This. — The interior is just as good looking as the outside of the vehicle. When you sit in the cabin, it makes you feel like your in a luxury car. No corners were cut to save money for the interior at all! The exterior styling of this car is one Toyota's first make of this car and one of their best looking cars. Lexus was going to bring this out as a Lexus but Toyota needed a sports car on their production line! The performance of this car can creep on you. With 190hp(200ft. lb of torque) at the crank, the 3 liter V6 moves quickly and quietly.
