This is my first Solstice and I haven't found anything wrong with it. I have had 2 Miatas and both were fun, but they are not even in the same class as the Solstice. The gas mileage is great, the sound system rocks, not a lot of room so I don't have to take folks with me. If I had a complaint it would be poor visibility in the back. But with your mirrors adjusted right it's not a big deal. Thanks Pontiac....

The Solstice is my first convertible after owning Mazda, Volvo, Mercedes and other vehicles; (all the others were either a coupe, station wagon or sedan). My Solstice IS NOT a daily driver and would not recommend it because people can be really abusive/envious by dinging it. But anyway, it's fun to drive (top up or down), economical (gas, insurance), and can handle any road condition. I really did my research and bought the Solstice because of maintenance and affordability. I have not been disappointed. I'm 6'1"/190 and can in-n-out. Like all concept vehicles some can be a hit or a miss. I think the Solstice is a hit/over the fence, and now may be a collector. A good buy and NOT overally expensive for what it offers. After 2 yrs with the '06, and driving it on weekends and days off I can get MORE than what I paid for it ( now with 25,500 miles)..so I'm happy with it.

I bought my red Solstice new in Jan 06 and took possesion in April. It has the Sand and Granite leather interior and most options. I was dissapointed with the enginepower but it doesn't matter when you are driving on twisty winding roads of which there are plenty in my area. This car handles so well it is almost unbelievable. I drive my vehicles hard and this one is no exception. The fun factor on a scale of 1 to 10 is a solid 15. The styling was very well done and is what I love about it besides the handling. I also own a GT PT Cruiser and it will blow the doors off the Solstice on the highway but it doesn't hold a candle to the Solstice on the back roads. Ya gotta love this car. I am beyond retirement age but you are always young at heart. Enjoy life. I know i do.

I am very pleased with this car. I've owned it for a couple of years and would recommend it to anyone looking for a modern roadster. The most notable feature is its exterior styling, the weakest is the interior materials and overall fit and finish. If GM can improve on these two points, it will have a good selling car for years to come.

My husband surprised me by giving me my Solstice for my 40th birthday. What an incredible car. I love my Solstice so much! It handles so well and is so sexy. All I have to do when I am having a bad day is take a spin, listen to the great sound system, and I am back to having a great day. I love having the sun on my face and the wind in my hair. The only down side - I am grounded from driving it until May because of our weather - but just sitting in still makes me happy.

I love it. Great toy car! Front bumper is a little too low but manageable.Not much room in the trunk but can still do groceries.

This car is so fun to drive. Hugs the road, love the stick, extremely comfortable to sit in for long distance. Incredible gas mileage and great value. It's my bat mobile! Still turns heads, stylish and can take a corner like no other car I have owned. Value so worth it. The only issue I have is although there are power locks there is no button inside in door or console to open. Have to use the remote. Other issue is no trunk space and no spare tire. But other than that I'm so glad I bought this.

I just bought a 2006 Pontiac Solstice and it is a blast - especially with the top down. For having a lot of fun while driving, this is a very affordable vehicle. No room for anything but a driver and passenger. But as long as you're not going on a long road trip, this is the car to get! 5-speed manual tran is fun and gets decent gas mileage. Highly recommended for those who love to get out in the sun and go fast.

My Solstice has been one of the most exciting cars I've ever owned. I've meet so many other enthusiasts who love this car as much as I and done several events with them. It's so much fun to drive, handles perfectly, tons of excitement, lots of attention, a wonderful community, and just a joy to own. The trunk space and roof take a little getting used to at first, but once mastered they don't detract from the excitement that is owning a Solstice.
