• Protect Your Pet: Allow pets time to adjust to the convertible ride if they're not used to riding with the top down. Help acclimate your canine companions by taking them on short trips at low speeds, and eventually work your way up to cruising full speed once your pet has had time to adjust.
Hard Top vs. Soft Top
Sixty-two percent of consumers want "hard" convertible tops, according to a survey conducted by the Chrysler Brand and Ipsos Public Affairs. If you can't make up your mind, you may want to check out a car such as the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. It's the first convertible to offer three automatically latching top options: vinyl, cloth and a body-color painted steel retractable hard top.
But regardless of the type of convertible top you prefer, if you're like many Americans, you take a softer approach to other things. Here are some additional survey results:
• Get the Ice Cream Scoop: More Americans prefer the soft-serve version of the perfect warm weather treat--ice cream--compared to the hard, hand-packed option (50 percent to 43 percent).
• Paperback Preference: Nearly seven out of 10 consumers would rather have a soft, paperback book over a hardcover novel when they're reading at the beach or on a road trip.
• Soft Rock Soothes: The Beach Boys and other classic soft rock artists were identified by Americans for making some of the best convertible driving songs.
