Long term Toyota fan, though without any convertibles in current production I shopped all the brands. Considering size, features and Toyota quality/reliability I found myself strongly considering a Solara. The Lexus models were just too expensive, just like the Infinity. Miata, fun but small and I've had one of those....Struck gold in finding a 2008 Solara SLE with less than 6000 miles. Very well appointed, nice driver, handles well, the 3.3 liter is reasonably peppy and not too thirsty. Love the passenger area, front passengers have excellent space and the rear is comfortable for adults, not just children. The trunk is huge so no problem taking a trip with this car, it's Camry size so plenty of room. We have a 2010 Camry SE and the Solara is very similar. I also have a 2011 Tacoma and wish the Solara had the Tacoma 4.0 liter. No complaints with this car, though oddly the rear windows can't be opened by themselves. The leather is nice and the seat heaters will be appreciated in the Fall and Winter.
