#11 of 12 Solara Not Recalled Yet
Feb 22, 2010 (11:31 am)
I checked the NHTSA website and there has been a few complaints of lagging issues with the Solara (only four so far).
However, given the recent developments that Toyota went to great lengths to hide problems with their vehicles, I would not be surprised if the recall list is revised to include the Solara.
Except for some suspension differences, the Solara is identical to the Camry. I'm inclined to believe they have the same pedal/accelerator components. But that is only speculation. Hopefully, with additional scrutiny Toyota will cop to all problems in all their models.

The Camry & the Camry Solara, are linked closely together.I have not been able to get any information from Toyota or the dealership, of who makes the pedal for the Solara. My 2007 Solara has pedal problems that are clearly identified as an electronic throttle control system. Toyota is not acknowldgeing the Solara on the recall list. Don't think there are only four complaints, I have found several reported cases to NHSTA, it is critical that they be notified. If you want to view more complaints go to AboutAutomobile.com, under consumer complaints. A specific case was reported in Denver Colorado, Reported on the Denver Post. A retired doctor was driving his 2005 Camry Solara, his car accelarated backwards into a pole and out of control into a car. An intern in California got in an accident in her Solara. Another woman drving her Solara convertable ran into an apartment bldg, and into a pedistrian. Many problems with the Solara, Without reports on problems with the Solara to NHSTA, Solara owners will be responsible for repairing their own cars. This is what a local Toyota dealership, and Toyota corporate responded to my concerns.
