We have 2500 miles on our convertible. It is a very nice and well behaved car. Our major compaint is cowl shake. Going over a bump makes the whole car shake. I have reviewed other reviews and have not found this to be a current problem but got mention back as late as 2004, but I thought this was thing of the past.
Smooth, smooth. Very smooth. Great engine and gas mileage.
This is my 3rd convertible in 8 years and without a doubt the best. I went from a Chrysler Sebring to a SAAB 9-7. More room inside, better looking on the outside. Very quiet with top up, you forget that you are driving a convertible.
Quiet ride with the top up. More room for adults. Display are easy to read and the compass works great.
Would have like to have an automatic hard boot to hide the top when down. Need separate switch for back windows. Arm rests for front cockpit. Better vision with rear view mirror.
This car is decent but with all of the blind spots it's not reliable for someone who is short like me. Plus the seats go out too far. I have only had the car a year and I'm already looking at trading it in. It's not for me. I hope some else has better luck.
Color, the looks of the vehicle and sport shift.
Seat need to be shorter on the bottom of the leg area. Too long.
This is not only the first convertible I've ever owned but it's my first actual new car. After exhaustive research prior to buying I have to say that I am completely thrilled with the Solara. Fun to drive, hip and showy to look at and I know I can count on the Toyota quality. People mistake it for a Lexus constantly at first glance. When I drive it I can actually feel myself relaxing and unwinding on the way home from work. I couldn't have made a better choice! Black-on-black 2006 Solara Convertible SLE.
