Great Little Sporty Car for Top Down Enjoyment
Now here is a great looking sports car without the unreasonable sticker price and high insurance costs. It runs great and gets pretty good gas mileage at around 25 MPG. Easy to drive with a nice 5 speed manual transmission. Comfortable seating that allows a 6' 2" person plenty of head room. All in all a very nice sports car option without paying for lots of extra horsepower that cannot be used, increases operating costs and has high insurance premiums.
Most fun I ever had in a car~!
Dear Editor: I love my 2007 Pontiac Solstice. The only complaint I have is that I have difficulty in re-fueling the car. The gas pump shuts itself off during the entire process. Is this common in other Solstice"s?
Best 'bang for buck' sportscar in the world
With a change of exhaust and simple reflash to 23 lbs of boost, I'm making 350 hp and 350 ft lbs of torque. That's twice the torque of a Honda S2000. 0-60 in 4.4 and quarter mile is 12.9 at 106. The low end torque of this thing puts my '08 Viper and '10 Corvette to shame! This thing is built like an exotic. Forged aluminum A arms front and rear--not cheap McPherson struts like Porsche, BMW, Miata, etc. Bilstein shocks, Getrag rear end. Incredible handling. Perfect weight distribution. Flip front end for easy service. These are only going to go up in value. They made only about 60,000 Solstice and 30,000 Skys. And far fewer of the turbo GXP and Sky Redline. Grab one while you can!
not a good dealer
i called about a Pontiac solstice with 58k miles priced at $16,400, $4k above market value. i offered $10,900 out the door. another dealership, has the exact same car with 63k miles for the $10,989. but my loan doesn't finance through them. i told the man my offer. he acted like they were gonna take a major lost. complete xxxxxx by tone of his voice. the car has been sitting on you guys lot for 74 days. it's already loosing your dealership money by sitting there, not moving. 74 days remember now. im ready with $10,900 in cash to take that car off your hands
worth every penny I paid for it
I have this car for five years and put a lot of mileage on it (20K per year). It never let me down, very reliable and faithful. No one will doubt about the looking, it's just gorgeous. Interior is cheap, cargo space is limited. But hey, it's a sports roaster half the price of BMW Z4 yet with better looking and similiar performance.
It's a fun car.
Gas mileage is good. It holds the road very good. The noise level is not bad for what it is. We have a lot of fun driving in the mountains. Overall it is the car we expected it to be.
I have only owned this car for 3 weeks, but it grows on me ever time I drive it. It looks like an expensive Italian sports car but on a retired guy's budget. It is not a comfort ride as it has a tight suspension. I have owned two TR-3s and a 914 Porsche, but this is the best looking car I have ever had. I'm a senior citizen but don't have any problem getting in or out of the car. It does have a blind spot with the top up but just have to be extra careful. I think this car is a good investment where most cars are not. Can't wait to get on the "Mother Road."
Most fun to drive car I have owned.
I loved body style when of this vehicle when it first came out in 2006. It is a real eye catcher. I recently purchased a 2007 GXP. I love the performance the turbo gives this vehicle.
Great car for the money
I really love this car, had a BMW M coupe and like this just as much. Great looks, and so much fun to drive, also have to hide it from the wife who also likes to drive the little beauty.
My favorite car ever
Considering this has been my dream cars for several years now it's easy to understand why I am beyond excited to finally have snagged one. I had already done my homework so I knew the pros (fassst if you get turbo 5 speed) and cons (little to no storage) and was warned about the blind spot. My previous car was a Mitsubishi Eclipse with the worst blind spot ever so guess I'm broken in there as the GXP causes me no problems. Great gas mileage, did I mention it was fast with 260hp, and is the most beautiful 2 seater there is in my opinion. I am in love with this car! My only complaint is I have to drive extra defensively as people either really can't see me or don't care. I have received so many compliments and people not believing what I paid for it. It's a great bargain, alot of fun to drive, and for me it is the ultimate.
