A guy with a big pick-up hit me sideways and totaled my 02 Solara. I loved that car. So I went to Castle in Baltimore and got an 08... same model. It's design stinks compared to my old Solara. I am 6 ft. tall and can't even see the front end of my new car as I drive. My old car was sleek and, at the time, a new design. The car I have now, the red red Solara is much higher and less sleek looking.
It looks cheap. I smoke. This Solara has no smoking conveniences. With 4500 miles on it in almost 11 months, I think the red is way too red. If my insurance company had given me more time to purchase a car, I definitely would have gone to a Honda dealership. Look at the 2002 and compare the styling to the 2008 model. I'm looking to sell my present car for a good deal.
I really hate driving a Tall car. I wanted a sporty look like the 02. What are your designers thinking?
