Yes, they took it to a company that put an ozone box in it that took out ALL odors in the vehicle. However, they don't seem to understand that the odor is in some chemical that is in the convertible top and when the sun hits it, it comes back. I had to go along with what they wanted, so it is documented. We only have about 11,000 miles on our car. Make sure it is put on your request for repairs. My dealer said he called CA and that it is not a known problem, which is B_. I am glad to see others are having this problem too as we thought we were crazy too, but my sales person even noticed it and the service person did too but got yelled at for saying she could smell it. Does that tell you anything? For an expensive car, that drives so nice it is sad to see such a problem that they can't correct. The car now smells like one of those ionizers....We all need to stick together on this issue.

Yes, I can believe the animal parts.
There is a product on the web called odorxit clo2 that will get rid if the odor. I am trying to get to the people at Toyota to get them interested too but no luck so far.
This stuff also gets rid of mold, mildew, tobacco smoke odor, and a bunch of other stuff as well

Has anyone gotten any resolution to this annoying problem in their Solara Convertibles? Are we covered under the Lemon Law, I wonder? I We have 23000 miles on our 2007. When it is sunny your car smells and burns your eyes... Hope someone has some ideas....
