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!

Amazing Sports Roadster — Some people might think this is a chick car but let me tell you this is not for the beginer driver.

Pros: Price, Power.  Love the shifter. Real chick grabber.

Cons: AHH Convertible, needs a hard top for racing.

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.

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.

Pros: great handling, lightweight, compact, beautiful exterior

Cons: lack of storage, rear differential issues

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the look

Cons: cloth seats

Fun little car but it does show its age. A lot of old GM plastics in the interior. Read More

Review By Donald

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
