Flashy Fun Convertible!

"Have loved having this bright red convertible for almost 9 years now. Fun fun fun at the beach. Wonderful in October when the weather is cool. Very sporty. Lots of get up and go. Only complaint would be the noise ~ not bad but big difference on the highway compared in a luxury vehicle. She is also light weight compared to other cars ~ noticeable in rain / wind storms."

"I previously drove toyota camrys for their comfort, value and reliability. The solara convertible has all that PLUS fun to drive, & gorgeous to look at! Go for the navigation system - mine has been well used! Never had a single mechanical issue with my Solara. Always maintained it well and it has repaid me with six years now of great transportation! Buy one!!"
