I get about 20-22 MPG on the road. I installed the back up beeping sound to alert me if anything is in my path. The car has been great!! I love driving it. I have been a Toyota driver for years. This particular Solara has a Lexus look and feel.
Getting in and out of the car since the seats are higher - is one reason I bought this particular automobile.
If you are going to change this convertible keep it the same as far as seating, but make it in a hard top. The new Supra coming out will be too low for me to get into.
