My Solara conv. has been the perfect 'crisis' vehicle for a family guy that wants to cruise, enjoy the fresh air, and still have the ability to take company along. The design draws compliments, the performance is adequate, and the comfort is outstanding. It could use a little more structural support and better suspension components, but other than that no real complaints. The top has proven VERY reliable and sound for a seven year old cloth top, and I have only treated it(water proofing)and had it retightened twice for minimal cost. So far reliability has been outstanding and I just turned 90,000.
Smooth ride for a convertible and comfort for four people. Top and paint have held up well. Trunk is large for a vert, holds 2 golf bags AND 2 overnight/weekend bags. The dog loves it too.
If I keep it, the suspension will be upgraded and the chasis stiffend with subframe supports.
