Excellent Sports Car For The Money! — Purchased the car in 2006 received as anniversary present from husband. What a nice surprise. The leather interior looks great and the engine runs smooth. Let the top down and enjoy the ride. Have only taken car in for normal routine checkups and oil change. Have never had any probelms with this car. I'd give it an A+.

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

2006 Solstice — There are few cars in the $20,000-$30,000 range that can turn heads quite like the Pontiac Solstice. Even though it's entering its fourth year of production, this curvaceous roadster still commands looks from fellow drivers and passers-by. This sexy styling, along with the Solstice's able powertrain and sporty driving dynamics, have made it a sales success. For 2009, Pontiac has added even more varieties of Solstice to the menu.

Sexy Convertible Sport Car — I like the simple sexy sporty looking exterior, driver is very close to rear mirror giving excellent visibility, solid construction, great handling on fast sharp curves, very comfortable seat with head rest, powerful air conditioner, hood can be deployed and put back in few seconds.

It is loaded!
It is a 4CYL. but it will fly.

Fabulous. Best Car I Have Ever Had. — I love this car but just don't drive it enough. I got a Smart car and I seem to use it the most because I park my Solstice in the garage in front of the Smart car. I do make sure I drive it once a week to keep it running great.

Its A Keepers Just Get Plenty Of Extra Interior Parts — Fun car to drive, quality is definately lacking, plastic interior, electrical ploblems and just poor craftmanship, I would definately get the 2009 model, maybe they have most of the problems worked out by then. Or just drop a big turbo in it and blow doors on just about every car on the road.

Great Job Gm You Built A Winner! — I love it! It is unbelievable fun to drive, flings around corners beautifully, could be a couple hundred pounds lighter. It needs more horsepower! So far, no problems with the car. :) How can you not love the way it looks?

Solstice Review — I love it. The only thing is I do wish I had leather seats, but I didn't like them the year I purchased the car. They were 2 tone and a bit gaudy. In my province, they put the plate on the front which looks absolutely awful. Tcar looks so much better without it.

You Haven't Driven A Car Until You've Driven A Pontiac Solstice — I don't want to write a novel so just pretend that i wrote about how everything that could be could about the car was better than good. Only complaint was trunk space.

Great styling, excellent handling and braking.

Cons

Poor ecotec engine, less than desirable build quality.

Inexpensive Coupe Gives Bang For Buck! — I had a chance to work the little solstice out on GM's test track in Las Vegas. With an Ecotec motor, I wasn't expecting much. What I got was a lot more than I bargained for. The car accelerates almost as hard as a Corvette, and handles almost as well as one too. The interior is pretty tight, if I was a large fellow or tall to any degree, I wouldn't consider purchasing this car. The Ecotec motor delivered mediocre performance, and was extremely noisy with buzzing and vibrations, reminding me of my friend's beat up '03 Sunfire. Handling and braking, however, were top notch. Build quality could be better: I did feel as if the car was not as solid as it could have been. You certainly can't beat the looks of this little roadster, and it's certainly more masculine than the comparable Miata. All in all, definitely a car I'd recommend, and take to the autocross course.

This Car Is Great For Someone Who Hasn't Smiled In A Long Time. — This car is a two-seater so not much room for carrying things but great for someone who loves to drive and loves small cars. Handles great, looks great, I don't know what else to say except that I smile everytime I'm in this car and I've never been sick of it.
