I got mine just before the hurricane and have only 100+ mile on it. Everything works, it's tight and fun to drive. The Arctic Pearl White paint with tan top is a nice combination, and people have stopped to admire the car. The only problem that I have experience is in rear visability with the top up... very bad do to the front slope of the car and the head rests which cannot be removed. One would hope that this could be resolved in some way in future models. I'm coming out of a 2000 Avalon and the Solara has all the bells and whistles, and seem almost as large a car. A Lexus in Toyota badging. It was a toss up between this or a 350 Z. The Solara just makes more sence and I love it
Build quality and reliability of owning a Toyota. Our family has had three others, all of which are on the road with 125K plus.
Rear visiblity is a serious problem, as are the location of the switch for the four windows and the top. The boot should be easier to put on or be made from a different material. It also should match the roof color. It comes in grey and black.
