This is an excellent vehicle, one that
is fun to drive, very comfortable
seating, ample room in back seat, draws
many favorable comments. It is the
only one in the area that we live in
and gets many looks and comments. The
front seats are the most comfortable of
any car that we've ever owned. If
there is a drawback, it's that the car
must be in park and emergency brake on
to raise or lower the top, (which is
quite fast to do).
Took delivery on this car in November
of 2003, it has been great ever
since. I've had no problems with the
performance. Like many others I would
like the rear seat access to be
quicker and better view out of the
back. Otherwise, very happy with the
car, including my 6'1 husband who
NEVER was able to get in the back seat
of the Celica. I'm also happy knowing
I'm in one of the safest cars around.
I have had bad experiences with the low
profile tires on this car.
I had to replace 2 front ones at 8,000
miles and at 12,000 mile had another
blowout and had to replace one front
again. This vehicle also does not take
bumps or ride smooth.
I purchased my convertible because of
the Volvo safely rating and it was the
best looking convertible I've seen. A
year later, it is still the best
looking convertible on the road! I
haven't had any problems with the car
and it feels very safe to drive. Its
nice to be able to take the top down
with the push of a button!
I doesn't take bumps in the road very
well and I have to be very careful of
potholes in the road. Otherwise, I
love the ride!
Ease in taking the top down, the
beautiful upgraded wheels, the look of
the car, the safety, the wood trim
(wish I had purchased the wood wheel!)
SLOW automatic seats to enter rear!
can't open center compartment when a
drink is in the cupholder! smoother
ride over bumps! Would love a hybrid
option to conserve gas!
