Pros

Build quality, smooth power delivery, nice amenities, good value

Cons

transmission is not quick to respond, soft suspension

2004 Solara Sle V6 — Good looks and smooth power delivery. Suspension is a little soft, but comfortable on long trips. I imageine the resale value is not so good b/c of the deal I got on it, but it's a Toyota so the build quality is not in question and I imagine I'll keep it for some time. Great value for money in the used car world. Avg city mpg - 23 Highway - 30.

Pros

Great car to daily drive. Really quiet, and really comfortable for a car that starts just a little under $20,000. Can't compare daily driven comfort to other cars in this price range.

Cons

Unlike what the name suggests, it is not a sports car. It can become a good sports car, but this requires a lot of financial dedication and time. For those who want all of what this car has to offer, start by looking at what T.R.D. has to offer.

Good Daily Driver. — Great car to daily drive comfortably. If you are more concerned about gas mileage, get the I4 SE. If you want more power, get the SE V6 or the SLE V6 I have here. May not be everyone's favorite, but give it some time, and it will grow on you. I've added some aftermarket modifications to my own, and it's helped unlock some true latent ability hidden away in these great cars. This car is not a true sports car at first, and requires much work to make it a sport car. However, each improvement made to the car is a largely noticeable difference. It has had no major mechanical malfunctions, but small issues like fluid leaks and electrical sensor malfunctions has taken it's fair share on finances.

Pros

Acceleration and handling.

Cons

No reasons

55

Classic Luxury Sports Coupe — Acceleration is fantastic as well as gas mileage with the V6 engine. This engine was also used in the Lexus ES330 that year. The interior is luxurious with supple leather buckets and genuine wood trim. Exterior styling is very current and aerodynamic. Handling is superb...no body lean or sloppiness.

Cannot Beat It For The Class And The Money. — I love this car. Not too expensive to maintain, great handling, perfect for my needs, and its sexy. The looks that people give even though its a common car its still rare enough in New England for people to look. Nothing like a Mercedes but it rocks!!!

Pros

Fun to drive, great build quality, nice looking, quick

Cons

Throttle lag and the automanual slushbox takes hella time to shift in manual mode.

55

My Car: Batmobile. — I could have done better for the price, but I thought for my first car, getting a nice, solid Toyota would be good. It's pretty quick, but of course not a rally car or anything. It also drives a bit too smoothly, there's some throttle lag, and they added another unnecessary air filter thing to dull the engine noise, which I will take out soon (doesn't damage the car, it's just a noise dampener). The automanual/tiptronic or whatever you call it is basically a slushbox - takes forever to shift, which contributes to the throttle lag. One thing I hate is that it has virtually no aftermarket support - I can't really change it besides a basic intake mod... Oil change every 2-3k miles, not a hassle at all. Mileage is pretty cool, about 28 highway if I actually drive like a normal person. I've been running it on 87 octane though it does even better on premium (it's great with both). Oh, and it saved my ass in an accident... which could have been fatal. This car is really fun to drive, especially with the top down.

Great First Car! — Looks great, reliable, sorta sporty but with more relaxedness to it. I get a very surprised response when telling people that its 10 years old. Most think its brand new. Mine does only have 35,000 miles on it, got it for a great price and have never regretted it.

Great Cruising Vehicle — This car is stylish and appealing on multiple levels. It's great for cruising but also has the extra power necessary to get in and out of lanes well. Because of it's large size for a coupe it can fit passengers comfortably in the back and has ample trunk space for storage. The sunroof also made it easy to enjoy on summer days driving down 95. However, in my use, gas became a problem for me and I never felt that I got enough out of a full tank. Also, when winter rolled around this car was a pain to deal with in the snow. Otherwise I would still rate this vehicle as one to own especially if gas isn't a problem or even if you have another vehicle and would just like this for your cruising pleasure.

Best Car Ever!! — A Lexus in a Toyota car. Bought it new in 2004, it has been NO problem at all. Reg oil change every 3000mi, air filter,etc. I plan to get 200k mi or more out of it. No reason why we can't. We dont beat our cars!! We drive them with respect, so they last. 27mpg city and 31 highway! 4cyl 2.4 ltr.Great engine! 11-25-2009
