What is this discussion about?
Toyota Camry Solara, Convertible
#29 of 38 No roadside assistance
Aug 14, 2008 (7:31 pm)
I just found out that unless I bought the maintainence package from my dealer there is no roadside assistance available from Toyota for my 2008 Solara Convertible (and I guess any other of Toyota's models either!!). That info blew me away as every new car I have owned in the past 10 years always came with a roadside assistance program.I can't remember when I have used it on any other of my cars but it was nice knowing that I could if I had a problem.

That's great news! Hopefully, any existing 'issues' won't get swept under the rug under the assumption that the car has faded away - and mechanics will try to fix things, since the model will be around for awhile longer.

Anyone heard anything else on the 2009 Convertible?

There won't be one! Grab a 2008 if you want a new one

Go to TRDparts4u.com and drill down to your model/year and find the edge guards in your color. (or just go here: http://trdparts4u.com/MC-DCHJ-FIE.aspx ) They're not cheap at ~ $50 for a pair, but they are quality and they're metal. I purchased and installed them and they fit the contours perfectly. One thing you need to do is trim any excess sealer from inside the door itself (where the skin wraps around) and repaint the trimmed area so be sure you have the appropriate touch-up paint color which you can order there also. Be careful so you don't cut into the metal when trimming. They seem less susceptible to chipping, but at least they protect the door.

And, since I barely know what a flat tire is, I'm guessing I could get a local auto body shop to install them- thanks! I had searched for these and never could find them-

I've got an '08 convertible. The solution is quite simple--and inexpensive. I went to my local auto parts store and bought two protective door edge strips (I got black, but they also had silver) that are flexible, have an adhesive inner edge, and can be cut to the desire length. Been on for the past two years with no problems. Cost? Less than $5.

Last month I spoke with the dealer that sold us our `06 convertible.
Toyota still has no plans for a Solara or Solara type convertible in the near future.
