2000 Toyota Solara SE V6 from North America
Everyone should own one
Nothing major has gone wrong with the car.
Resume on the cruise control does not always work.
The check engine light has been going on and off for the past few months. Having it looked at this week.
This is by far the best overall car I have ever owned. It is reliable, comfortable, good on gas, handles and rides beautifully for a car its size and very powerful. My next car is a Solara convertible!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Update to my original posting above: I now have 121,000 miles and have replaced 2 oxygen sensors and the starter. Not bad at all for a 13 year old car! It still runs like the day I bought, and my only regret is that it doesn't have a sunroof.
Handling is amazing for a car of its size and age; power from the V6 is still incredibly strong.
My next car is either a Camry or Lexus ES300, simply because I'd rather have a sedan.

It's often amusing when the owner of worn-out high-mileage car upgrades to something much newer. No matter what they buy, it inevitably is reported to handle great. Even an understeering front-heavy pig, like a Solara, feels more taut and responsive than a beat-up sports car after sufficient punishment.
