I recently bought my '05 SLE convertible and it is the best car I've ever driven. I needed a convertible with a fairly large trunk that was reliable. I looked at Saabs, Hondas, etc., and the Solara performed miles better than the rest. The trunk is HUGE! I shopped at Sam's Club this weekend and everything fit neatly in the trunk. So, I put the top down and cruised happily home. Love it!
Ride comfort, size of trunk space, ease of putting the top down, reliability - after all, it's a Toyota.
The rear headrests cause a blind spot but I've gotten used to using the side mirrors to navigate. It's really not a problem.
