Fun, Fun, Fun — This car was a blast to drive in the city, on the highway, in the country or on the coast. Fuel economy is great, performance is outstanding and styling is superb. Even after having the car for 8 years, we still get looks from people.

Pros: Great car to drive, especially love at the coast with top down. Right amount of power/weight ratio.

Cons: small trunk space with top down.

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.

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

Pros: sporty, low seat close to ground, convertible, very fun to drive

Cons: small cargo space

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.

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

Cons: I really have nothing bad to say unless you need a lot of trunk space.

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.)

Pros: Sporty- Nice with the top down and hair blowing in the breeze.  Comfortable to travel long distance. Leather bucket seats, nice interior and great stereo.

Cons: Small truck area

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handles like a gocart

Cons: Fit and finish

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?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Apperience, top down experience.

Cons: Lack of power

Sweet Convertible — Acceleration could be better, but improved with a K&N airfilter and new exhaust system. Handling and brakes are both great. Never needed repairs, no problems at all! Very nice and special appearance, will always love it. In summer time a really fun car to drive!

Pros: My 20" Asanti wheels

Cons: just 4 cylinders ;)

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.

Pros: awesome car for the money

Cons: lack of storage space

Pontiac Solstice — fun factor is 10. gas millage is approx 30 miles per gallon...performance is great and handles awesome...nice look and ride for a sports car...i like black but it is really hard to keep clean....does not have a lot of room as it is only a 2 seater but i knew that when we bought it......it is a convertable so on a hot or warm day it is nice to cruise with the top down and get a tan at the same time!!!!

Pros: al positive

Cons: can not drive in the winter...

Car is overpriced! Its really just a novelty car no storage at all and difficult to get into and out of! The 4 banger is good on gas but it only holds 12.5 gal but very sufficient for most trips! Read More
