Pros: "Excellent suspension and power, fun to drive"

Cons: "top storage, trunk, internal storage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Out of the box, the Solstice GXP is a great car. Short comings are top storage and engine lugging in first gear. Suspension is good for a production car that cost 20K new. The engine has great power for a car at 20K new. But then I didn't pay anyway near 20K for this car. That's the main point. I have seen remarks about the Solstice as being minimalistic and unrefined. That's OK with me because that is how we do it in the US. In the Navy, we say we build war ships, not cruise liners. Same with our cars. The Solstice is a perfect car in that it can truly be what the owner wants - and not bankrupt while doing so. Want more power - no problem and easily done. GM Stage II tune. Want a better suspension? Again, no problem and at a seriously good price. Z0K parts are cheap. Update the interior? The sky is the limit. Do that to other cars the Solstice is compared to, and you are more than likely to pay out the nose. Trunk space is just horrible - that is a fact. But a person with a little ingenuity can take care of that. Most complaints come from individuals that will conquer the suspension but whine because they cannot install a cup holder. For the price I paid for the car, I have a turbo 4-cylinder monster - still half the price of a BMW 3 series or 350Z of the same year range."

"I have truly enjoyed driving my Solstice convertible! My reason for trading is because I'm older and the car sits pretty low to the ground, like all sports cars, limiting my ability to get in and out smoothly. The Solstice GXP has great power and accelerates quickly. The gas mileage is good getting about 22 miles a gallon. It's a beautiful car and lots of fun to drive. In the five years that I've owned my Solstice I've replaced the tires, master cylinder and fan motor (which was the most expensive at $537). It uses synthetic oil so you change it about every 4-5 months."

At a local car show

"I have had it for almost two years now, unfortunately I have gone thru a few things with this car..A new clutch(Not Common $1,500 Priv Mechanic, $1,800 Dealer), Emergency brake calibration(Super Common $150-250 Dealer), Passenger Air Bag re-calibration (Common Dealer $650), and a Passenger door handle ($15 Fix it yourself 10-30min). Even tho I have had those 3-4 Problems THAT IS THE ONLY problem that anyone in the world is really going thru with these cars. I also did a tuneup myself(Spark Plugs, Thermostat, Brakes, Oil Change, and Coolant Change) it was super easy. The Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky forums are amazing when It comes to getting information. And the community is really responsive & supportive! Highly recommend the car! I crack a lot of heads I have a "brazen inferno orange" color and all my friends & family love it! Nice convertable, Nice overall Ride."
