I purchased this car when the 05s were introduced. I traded my 2000 Solara convertible for it. This 05 now has 10500 miles on it, due to a few trips to Florida from Connecticut. This car is so much better than the 2000 in almost every way, no rattles, wind noise and better handling. I feel it is the best convertible out there. The build quality is comparible to my LS400 Lexus. This car was manufactured as a convertible not chopped like the 2000.
Easy top down, ride and handling, stero system, great looks and color combination. I have the yellow top, cream interior and Cosmic blue exterior
Improve back head rests to elimate blind spot. Add side moldings for dent protection. Do away with the bootcover which is really hard to install and looks crappy when installed. I have had my car for over two years and have installed this cover one time. It has been in my garage storage ever since.
