Smooth, quiet and comfortable. I have
owned this car for 7 months. Previous
car was a Chrysler Sebring Conv which
I owned and drove for 7 years. Solara
is far quieter has good interior space
including trunk, nice 5-speed auto
trans [although I would prefer a
stick.] Confidence inspiring
brakes...Toyota reliability. Good
size fuel tank and excellent highway
MPG of about 30.
Steering wheel audio controls, heated
seats, Toyota build quality and
reliability. Excellent turning radius.
1. Body rigidity is inferior to
Chrysler. Too much cowl shake and
wiggle over bumps. 2. Seatbelts:
front should be seat integrated as in
Chrysler. Rear belts flap in the
breeze. 3. Rear headrests are a
visibility problem. 4. Toyota
steering has no road feel. 5 Top boot
fits poorly bad design
