My wife and I had the car for 6 weeks with 2500 miles. The car is very quiet, solid, and lives up to Toyota quality. I traded a 3 BMW and the Solara is as quiet and comfortable as the Bimmer. I was impressed as to how quiet the ride is with the top up and also with the top down. The navigation system is a bit busy but it keeps my wife occupied during out short trips to the beach. I'm happy I bought the car.
Ease of putting the top down, the sound system, very comfortable seats, fairly large trunk, large back seats, and quality of workmanship of the whole car.
Include the XM satellite radio receiver as an option rather than an accessory, visor positioning, and a wider rear window.
