Did two test drives. Took delivery only 3 days ago. Didn't think I would trade my 2001 Mustang convertible for anything other than a mustang GT, but I did. Solara convertible is great compared to mustang GT if you don't mind 90 hp less and better than the Pontiac G6 which gives 0 trunk space with top down. Solara has just about everything including a gps option and automatic/clutchless manual shifting (very fun). Watch the backing with the boot on - you lose almost all rear view visibility with the high boot unless you are very tall and put the seat in a high position. Have already reported this safety problem to Toyota. Would not have been a deal breaker, but maybe better discount.
Transmission, gps system with verbal commands, steering wheel controls, style, ride, all up/down window button, accel to 100 in no time/comfortably, great dash & dash lights, great leather, stereo can compete with the kids without modif. Computer controlled ac/heat, auto dim rear/driver side mirrors
Redesign convertible top boot!! Add change drawer. Include XM receiver in gps system option rather than just having a compatible radio! Now the receiver must be installed as an accessory not an option - don't forget this if you want XM or Sirius radio.
