2004 Toyota Solara SE 2.4L Four from North America


Great car for the money


Nothing so far.

General Comments:

At 8100 miles I am due for a regular oil change and a tire rotation. This car has only been to the dealer for regular maintenance. Not one defect to report.

The engine runs great and is very smooth even at idle. I needed a car to get back and forth to work that gives good gas mileage and the Solara does it. I am getting around 27-28 MPG. It can easily move out of it's own way in the city and highway.

The brakes stop the car well with no vibration or pull during hard stops.

Exterior styling is nice and the interior is very nice looking and comfortable. Lots of standard features for a sub $20,000 car.

Build quality is great. No squeaks or rattles.

Handles pretty well with base suspension and is great in wet weather. Ride quality is also good and is very comfortable even on long trips.

I usually keep my cars until they die. I have a feeling this car will have a long life with not too many problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2004 Toyota Solara SE 4- cylinder from North America


Fun, Sleek, Roomy Coupe


Nothing has went wrong so far.

General Comments:

This is a great, sporty, fun car for the money. It drives like a more expensive car. It is a head turner, and everyone asks what kind of car it is.

The ride is smooth, and the back seat is roomy considering that it is a coupe. The trunk is roomy also.

I love this car and would recommend it.

I just bought a '04 Toyota Solara SLE about a month ago. I have already driven it about 1,000 miles. What a fabulous car! Drives so smooth and the interior is so comfortable. I absolutely love my navigation system and the heated seats. The artic white exterior paint reminds me of the pearl white that Cadillac uses and the body style reminds me of a Lexus. This car screams luxury without the luxury price tag. I highly recommend the 04 Solara SLE to everyone who wants the sporty 2-door look with the spaciousness of a sedan.
