2008 Toyota Camry Solara Sport V6 2dr Convertible (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
I did quite a bit of research and drove a number of convertibles before buying the Solara. All convertibles have "blind spots"... It is the nature of the car. I selected the Solara Sport convertible based on expected dependability (as per Consumer Reports, Edmunds, and Kelly Blue Book). I am not a "leather interior fan" and I liked the look/feel of the sport package fabric. The car has decent pick-up and provides acceptable MPG (I am getting about 24 combined so far, but I have less than 1,000 miles on the car, so I am hoping/expecting some improvement).
Interior room, trunk size, exterior styling, layout of the controls.
Add a build in auto-dimming / compass rear-view mirror; provide a few more storage trays / slots in console; coffee holders are not very secure.. watch your coffee cups! Stiffen steering so that you feel the road more.
