I had been researching this beauty
since about March of this year (2004)
and finally decided to "bite the
bullet" in July. My Absolutely Red SLE
Convertible with NAV and VSC was
delivered August 15, 2004.
This is, hands down, the best
convertible in the $28-33k range.
That Toyota "drive-by-wire" hesitation,
no power passenger seat, single CD with
NAV, cheap plastic top latches
(although I have no doubt they will
work fine for a long time), no
desperately needed back-up sensors.
