2008 Pontiac SolsticeReview
Overall:

Zero Trunk space. Pretty much makes it useless. BMW, Triumph, MGB, Mazda, Fiat, Sunbeam, etc all figured out how to make a two seater convertible with a Trunk,,, why couldnt Pontiac????

This is a nice small two-seater that will keep its value longer than most cars as long as you take good care of it. Its fun car to drive and since they are no longer available, there arent very many available for sale. Its a terrific little sportscar for the price!

Fair retail for this GXP model dealer response was excellent. The Saturn Sky the sister model and the Mazda MX5 are competitors.

Overall:

I currently have a 2015 Mini Cooper and I did not find that the Solstices steering, gearbox, or clutch are up to the standards that I am used to. But the Solstice is a beautiful design and is comparable to a Miata from the same era. The GXP engine is very nice - quick and with little turbo lag. I liked the car but just wasnt wowed by it

Overall:

Great Sports Car — The best part of the car is driving with the top down on a sunny day. Handles great, looks great. Easy for one person to put the top up and down. Gauges are located well, and the transmission shifts well. Don't plan on a long vacation though given the trunk space.

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

Pros: Fun car to drive! Gets noticed a lot

Cons: not much cargo space

Overall:

This Is One Sexy Car. Put The Top Down And People Notice! — I HATE to give this car up! It got great mileage, 28 on the highway, and I've never had any major repairs needed on it. A couple of sensors had gone out, but it was still under warranty at the time and I've had no problems since. Maintenance has been kept up-to-date.

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

Pros: This car handles great and is fun to drive, especially with the top down.  Never have problems with it.

Cons: It has a blind spot when the top is up that has almost caused me to have accidents.  Be sure to check twice when changing lanes.

I loved the Solstice, it’s an awesome vehicle. So why the 3 stars? Well it’s under powered even in the turbo model; had it been brought to us in a v6 or v8 like originally intended it would be an inva... Read More
