1999 Toyota Solara SE V6 - 1MZFE from North America
Reliable, fast and safe
Battery was gone at 20K miles.
Oil pan silicon leaked at 60K miles.
Car doesn't seem to align correctly.
Driver side window regulator broke at 155K miles.
Rear oxygen sensor broke at 165K miles.
Clutch started to slip at 175K miles.
Mass flow air sensor is broken at 175K miles.
I am the first owner of this vehicle, and it has served me well. The V6 + 5 speed combination offer a great sports experience and the reliability is superb. It has over 185k miles and it should hit 200K by the end of this year.
The first sets of front brakes were replaced at 120K (yes, it lasted 120,000 miles on my first sets of brakes)
After 165K miles, I have to replace a few more items, but the car nonetheless hold up pretty well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
