Car is for my wife. She wanted quiet, comfortable, sporty and spacious. Not an easy combination for a convrt under $30K. Tested: Sebring V6, Mustang V6 & VW Eos converts. Solara has best combination of space, features and price. This was 4th and last car we drove. She knew she wanted it at only 30 seconds into the test drive. Pluses 1. Top that does NOT fold down into fairly roomy trunk. You won't have to rearrange the contents of the trunk to put the top down. Ever. 2. Practically no engine and wind noise 3. Comfortable rear seating (true but hard to believe) 4. Solid comfortable ride & handling 5. Excelent ergos and cockpit for driver & front passenger 6. Peppy engine No Minuses
Toyota has a unique combination of workmanship, ergonomics, engine performance, handling and functionality.
The boot that covers the top when it is down needs to be easier to install, remove and store. Make it out of a flexible material that rolls up, takes less space when not in use, and can be inserted into a long lasting protective cover that can be safely stored in trunk. Clear plastic baggie is junk.
