Please help! What type of gas do the 2006 and 2007 SLE convertibles take?
I am shopping for a 2007, but my husband tells me the 07 takes premium gas and the 06 takes regular!

    I've been looking everywhere online for Toyota's recommendations on octane for the 2007 and 2006, but I just couldn't find anything.

    Hi: Have an 06 Conv. what make and grade of oil is preferred, In FL never cold.
  • In my 2008 Solara 4 banger the owner's manual states that 5W 20 is the recommended oil for this car. 38,000 miles. I usually buy either Motorcraft synthetic blend,Castrol syntec blend, or Quaker State full synthetic when on sale. I also use Purolater Pure One filters. Oil gets changed every 5,000 miles.
  • Hi,
    My 2003 Solara has 174k miles on it and is running great. JiffiLube suggested I put synthetic
    oil in it, now that it has high mileage. I've read though, that it is not necessary, but is a money
    maker for the oil shop.?

    Also, my steering column just got stuck in the very highest position and now I can't adjust it back to the lowest setting (where I like it). Any advice from anyone??

  • What does everyone recommend I use for oil in a 00' Solara V6, 5W-30 or 10W-30? Are people using high mileage oil or regular oil?

    My Fiances Solara [poor thing is about to die] is due for me to change the oil.

    She doesn't drive much as we use my car mostly; I've totally forgotten the type of oil required by the car and the capacity (think it is 5quarts total).

    Any help would be appreciated :-)
