For as iconic as the Toyota Camry has become since being first introduced in 1982, the Toyota Solara, which is based on the Camry, did not see as long of a run. Production on the Solara started in the 1999 model year and wrapped up just ten years later with the 2008 model year. However, throughout that ten year span, the battery replacement choice for the Solara remained constant- the Group 35.
OPTIMA has continuously-offered two different Group 35 battery upgrades for the Solara, in either our Group 35 REDTOP or D35 YELLOWTOP. Which one is right for your Solara? The three-year, free-replacement warranty is identical for both batteries and while the REDTOP offers more cold cranking amps than the YELLOWTOP (720 vs 620), both will provide plenty of cranking power to start every engine that came in the Solara.
The real difference between those battery choices comes down to how you use your Solara. If your Solara is an unmodified, daily-driven car, then a REDTOP will work great. However, if your Solara has an aftermarket stereo, car alarm, dash cam or other accessories that might deeply-cycle the battery, then the YELLOWTOP is the better option.
Regardless of the battery you choose, proper voltage maintenance will maximize the performance and lifespan of your battery. We're so confident this is the case, we'll add an additional year of free-replacement warranty coverage on your OPTIMA battery, if you purchase your OPTIMA battery from us and buy an OPTIMA Digital 1200 battery charger & maintainer at the same time.
