Design and performance

The Solair in GTA San Andreas resembles a second generation Ford Taurus station wagon. However, the rear of the car also has a certain likeness to a Volvo 940 wagon or the station wagon variant of the VR model Holden Commodore, although it is very unlikely that Rockstar Games would have modeled the car on an Australian car that's not very well known in the U.S. Despite its unappealing appearance, the Solair possesses above average performance, with good cornering and grip (complemented by soft suspensions), moderately good brakes, good acceleration and top speed (quite surprisingly higher than the Stratum's) and average endurance. Its suspension configuration, however, may lead to a higher risk of rollovers if the vehicle encounters bumps or uneven terrain when being steered.


The Solair can be modified at any TransFenders.

A Solair in GTA IV (Rear quarter view).


In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Willard Solair resembles a 2000–2003 Ford Taurus wagon; the taillights appear to be inspired from an eighth generation Lincoln Continental. Unlike the Taurus, however, it has a more modern and luxurious appearance as shown by the door handles, bumpers, and miscellaneous chrome. The car also bears "EP2000R" badges on the side.

Badging on the Solair.


The Solair is a hefty station wagon, powered by a 3.0 liter V6 like a 1996-2004 Mercury Sable or a 1996-2007 Ford Taurus, coupled to a 5 speed gearbox in RWD configuration. Acceleration is mediocre, slightly slower than its competition. Top speed however is slightly higher, thanks to a relatively high-torque engine delivering 155 mph (250 km/h). Handling-wise, the Solair retains much of its inspiration's characteristics, being quite sporty for a full-sized wagon, with good posture in the bends and relatively level cornering.

The suspension is fairly soft, leading to body roll, though very little oversteer can be felt. Crash deformation, thanks to the heavy chassis and frame, is well above average, sustaining much damage before failing; though engine build quality is unimpressive, with it failing after only a few impacts. Overall the Solair is better suited towards ramming and drive-bys than high-speed applications.

  • The front plate of the Solair in GTA San Andreas has a visual bug, having the plate characters bigger than the license plate itself.
  • Due to a graphical error in San Andreas (confirmed for PS2), during foggy weather the exhaust isn't on the muffler, but instead appears to be stuck in the bumper. The exhaust's position depends on the weather, though this might not always happen. Another bug with the exhaust is on PC, when the player takes the car to a mod shop and resprays it, the exhaust will move inside the bumper similar to in PS2.


  • The GTA IV Solair is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.
  • In GTA San Andreas, the front of the Solair is very similar to the front of the Stratum, another station wagon. However, the Stratum has a more streamlined form.
  • The default radio stations for the Solair are:
  • The Solair's name is a play on solar, the light and heat emitted from the sun.
