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...

Driving With My Top Down — It's a stick, convertible and it's black. Need I say more? It's a looker - but it's also a slider. In the winter....it's just too light and slips and slides, even with sand bags in the trunk. Only thing I don't like about it. Otherwise, it's a really sweet ride!

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.

Pros: Everything a driver wnat in a car

Cons: except trunk space?

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.

Pros: Great styling, excellent handling and braking.

Cons: Poor ecotec engine, less than desirable build quality.
