Fun car to drive, bit crammed if you are over 6. No noticeable difference between auto vs. manual transmission. Minimal trunk space with roof up - 0 trunk space with roof down. Overall, fun car for weekend night on the town - definitely not for long trips.

Overall:

Handling wise - very good. Convertible - Great! Styling - Along the lines of the old Cheetah which is cool. Useful - NO. Cant go on a road trip with a passenger because theres zero trunk space. Sooooooo,,,, kind of useless.

The model I drove was the GXP. It handled great and had good power. It is a 2 seat sports car with limited room and the ride may be harsh to some but its a great little roadster!

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

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

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

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.

Not Worth The Money.. — This car is fun in the summer...doesn't handle good in rain or ice.. it's fun to drive but there's to many problems with it...I don't think I would recommend this car to my friends, unless they wanted it for a weekend car...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive...Good on gas

Cons: Ignition has locked up on me twice... Squeaks like rusty old bed springs in the winter..No storage space..Cup holders suck..Bad blind spots
