Default Solara Convertible

I am thinking buying one and live in NYC, that precludes a test drive on the
highway. I would like to know from any owners if the turbulence in the car
with the top down at 65 -70 is detrimental enough to make a 400 mile trip
uncomfortable enough to keep the top up?

Thanks,
El Jefe

This is a very subjective thing...what someone else thinks is just dandy
....the wind in the hair and all that...may be intolerable to you. I for
one couldn't stand a 400 mile trip in any convertible (even a Rolls Royce)
with wind buffeting me, but then I don't even like to drive with the sunroof
open. Take a test drive before buying...it's not an option.

We've had our '05 Solara Convertible for about a year and a half now
and just love it. However, 400 miles non-stop at 65-70 MPH is not the
type of top down trip that appeals to me. I will not drive freeways
with the top down as the noise of other traffic has my head spinning
after an hour, or so.

If you've never had a convertible before, I highly recommend that you
lay in a supply of sunscreen, wear sunglasses and a hat or cap.
