Pros

Great car,  fun to drive, Great handling

Cons

Uncomfortable on very long rides 500 miles or more. Wide tires catch ruts in roads.

My Sol — I love the style of the car. The handling is great like riding on rails. A little noisy at speed but who cares it is a sports car. Engine power in the 2.4 is good enough to get you going. The quality of the car is still great and wear is not noticeable I have the car 7 years and 26000 miles.

Fun Roadster — Love this car, It is fast and fun to drive. It will blow you away at the acceleration power it has while you are cruising at 65mph and need to overtake the car in front of you. The Turbo will kick in and you are GONE!!! Driving to Vegas at 75 to 80mph, you will get 33mpg.

Cool — I like everything about this Solstice GXP it has plenty of power, plus great gas milage. The Solstice is a real head turner. Mostly the women tell me how cool it is. Solstice GXP is fun to drive and has the looks to do with it,and every time I stop people want to talk to me about this car.

Lilnasty — It's a Great car, I took very good care of it, always covered in garage. Somewhat expensive at $34k but GM had more in it than that. Front engine, rwd, independent rear suspension, posi rear. 290/340 hp/tq out of 2.0L, stratospheric specific output. Double wishbones at all 4 corners & they're Aluminum! Count the factory cars w/that on 1 hand in all the history of man. Super undervalued, underappreciated car.

Pros

Very pretty, all leather interior, excellent Pioneer system.  Great turning, breaking, and suspension.

Cons

Small engine, too much cash for not enough bite.

A Very Nice Looking Car With A Not So Up-to-core Engine. — When I first heard Pontiac was coming out with the Solstice, I was psyched. I was thinking "V6 with at least 230 horses under the hood, more bells and whistles than an Oscar Meyer weiner truck...ect". However, I was mistaken. After my best friend bought one, and though I cannot defy his choice as it was his dream, I was slightly un-impressed with the car. Though the car has very beautiful engineering on the outside, it's 2.4L 4 cylinder engine does not stand up to par with modern day sports car standards. Even for this light 2 seater, the acceleraction and the top speed are WAY too low. Not a car I can reccomend to the avid driver.

One Of My Favorite Rides. — I've owned this car for 4 years and I can't say a bad thing about it. I mainly drive it to and from work on nice days, and on weekends. It is one of the favorite cars I've ever owned or driven. Pontiac did one heck of a job on this model.

Attention Getter — Impractical, but gorgeous. Can't go wrong, but no airport pickups. Cargo is non existent for the most part. Hate to give it up, but not for new step moms Single gals will love it. I know I did for sure! "

Pros

Car handles great. Cuts tight in the curves. Considering it's size it rides pretty well.

Cons

Just enough room in back for a couple of small duffle bags for a weekend getaway.

Car Looks Great And Handles Well. — The car is a real head turner. Nine times out of ten when I take the car out I get a thumbs up or a complement on the looks of the car. The car has decent acceleration for it's engine size. It handles great and the braking is good. I feel safe in this car and in control. It's fun to drive.

Fun — I would recommend this car to anyone who is fit enough to get in and out of it...which I am not anymore. The mileage is great. Comfort is problematic. Best looking car made today. Maybe a collectors item someday soon. Car is rarely driven . Sunday showoff car

Pros

Beautiful and fast. What more can I ask for?

Cons

I wish the transmission was smoother and that it has more cargo room. The ride could be a bit smoother as well.

Love It. — Love the styling and performance. One of the best looking drop-tops since it hides beautifully into the back. Acceleration is amazing for a small engine. Turbo definitely makes it a sports car, but still gets great MPG. I average 27 for daily driving and I like to feel and use the power.
