#41 of 62 Solara 07 Convertible Alignment problems
Dec 20, 2006 (9:21 am)
Love our SLE Conv, but since day one, car pulls to right. 4 weeks old now w/235 miles, the dealer says alignment is OK, but it still pulls to right. Now they have Master Mechanic on it who has replaced the shims, strut "tower" (after three tries with parts from Torrance HQ) and coil springs--and it still pulls. They have had car TWO WEEKS and never call with an update. I have to call, or stop by (since I get put on hold) to get info. I had to ask Marina del Rey Toyota, they didn't volunteer, for a rental--they gave us a HHR Black. When will we get out car back? I also have a 2006 Sequoia its perfect!

Two hours after posting the message here, we got a call. Car is ready--it was the coil springs--go figure. Returned rental--my wife is happy!

Now that you've had your car about 6 months, what do you think? What do you think of that dealer? (Look in your rear view mirror - I'm back there...thinking about buying a 2007 Solara in Sanford

Sorry, I can't see you! However, I really like my Solara. The ONLY issue I have with it is the limited visibility at the left and right rear corners. But, I know this, and most convertibles have at least this much blocked visibility, or even more. The back seat is great for a convertible, as is the trunk. I have had "zero" problems or issues to date. As to my dealer, I haven't been back to them yet. The car is spending the winter in Florida, and I still haven't reached a required service mileage. I have a black with light tan top and leather, and everyone who sees it thinks it looks great (if kept clean and shiny.)

I have a 2007 Solara convertible SLE. I bought it on August 4th. I have had no problems to date. I have just over 2,000 miles on it and just had the first service performed. $25 for an oil change. The dealer even picks up your car for service.
#47 of 62 Questions on Solara

I took a test drive in a solara the other day and was impressed with how quiet and smooth this car is. A friend told me he thinks the solara is more a "chick" car than for a guy? Any thoughts on that one?
Also, my local dealer never has more than 1 or 2 on the lot at any given time (either black or silver) and I would really like to see the cosmic blue color. Is this a limited production color or is Toyota just limiting overall production on the solara?
Has anyone heard if this is the last year for Solara or if Toyota will be revising to the new camry platform anytime soon?

My wife has had a '99 Solara, and she now has a '06 Solara SLE-V6 coupe in black. She loves them. Me, not so much but they are a good car, dependable, comfortable and powerful. I do think more females than males buy Solaras; but so what? I think the "chick car" stuff is BS spouted by insecure males.
There is talk the Solara will be discontinued in MY 2008 or 2009. It just does not sell in large enough numbers for Toyota. I doubt Toyota will revise the new Camry platform in the near term as it is only on its second MY.

I'm a "senior male" and I love the car. I have it in black with a light tan interior and top. I got more compliments about this car than from the "luxury" cars I also own. (but you must keep black very clean) The red is also very sharp.I think they limit production as dealers I've been to have little or no inventory. Probably just a way of keeping the discounts low, at least on the deluxe model.

Hey - the Solara is a cool car for men and women! My ex-boyfriend bought the cosmic blue V6 convertible. I told him that when I bought my 1999 Acura CL 3.0 that I had it narrowed down between the Acura and the Solara. He loves the car. Since I've had so many problems with my car, I was considering the Blizzard White Solara, but I, too, heard that 2007 was the last year Toyota was making Solaras.
