Convertible — Very dependable and fast for stock, sleek lines and very well built body and ground effects kit. Auto adjust headlights are a plus and the transmission shifts smoothly, especially in sport mode. A fun ride even in cold weather with the heat on.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Acceleration, highway mpg, comfort, style, handling, suspension

I need bigger rims.  Visor hits the rearview mirror when I put it down.  Bad mpg in town.

Great All-around Car — Love the look. Love the drive. Friends love riding with me (even in the back). I feel safe. I have the power to make it on the Houston roads with those Mercedes and BMWs.

Versatile Sports, Lifestyle, And Commuting Car — Leather heated seats are a must in winter. It's easy to clean by hand since it's a convertible. It's great for a joy ride or Sunday drive. It's stylish. Maintenance costs are average. It's very fun to drive and the braking and acceleration are on par with this powerful model series. The fuel economy is above average between 26 and 28 miles per gallon. The car is equipped with one auxiliary port as well power ports.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Excellent Vehicle. — I have owned five (5) Toyota's throughout my life and everyone of them was a excellent vehicle. I have never had any major repairs done to any of my vehicles. The paint is excellent on these vehicles. The gas mileage and ride are always outstanding. Toyota makes a quality vehicle.

A Great Ride Into Retirement/re-living — We had a 2004 Solara Convertible SE. Decided we loved the cars safety features and comfort so we bought this 2008 SLE to take us into our retirement/re-living years. Even picked this car over our 2010 Toyota Prius (which is for sale). We followed our heart instead of logic (better gas mileage w/Prius) but Jake gets over 30 mpg on the highways. Not bad for a V6. Life is Good and we're going to do what we like, and like what we do.

Yaaaawwwwwnnnnn — this car handles horribly. i sometimes feel like i get better handling in my yukon. this car is also slow, and i was really disappointed in the lack of power this v6 seems to have. build quality is pretty good, though. but this car is really ugly, it sometimes makes me sick to drive it. add to the fact that this is a boring drive, and i guess that means that i wouldn't recommend it. good gas mileage, though.

"i Love What You Do For Me....toyota!!!!!" — I was a little hesitant to buy a foreign car given my family's GM back ground, but I am thoroughly impressed with the quality and performance of this vehicle. My father(30 year GM Guy) even approves. This car is really fun to drive. It is high performance, and very sporty. The gas mileage is awesome, and I love all the great little extras it has, like the 6 disc changer, moonroof, and leather interior. My fiance and I are both so happy with this car that he is also looking into buying a Toyota. The timing belt is the only big thing that I am aware of that is a major thing for up keep. I was told it needed to be done every 75K-90K and costs around $500-$750. Overall, Extremely satisfied: )
