Although I have only owned a month and put about 700 miles on it, it hasn't disappointed me yet. I had the power up package added. Now 290 HP and 340 ft lbs torque according to article in Hot Rod. I still get goosebumps when I step it down and look at speedometer, I won't admit what it read! Admittedly going to be a summer ride for me but it will be a GREAT summer!
Once you get used to the space issues, (lack of it)the leather seats in GXP pkg wrap around you like the seats in my Cobalt SS never did. Also the inside night lighting is awesome. I had never owned a Pontiac before so the red dash lighting was a pleasant surprise.
With the exception of the space confinement, which one really does get used to, I only suggest that GM doesn't discontinue Pontiac, to late for that. I guess was the final reason I chose to get my Solstice, there wouldn't be alot of similiar opportunities. We'll all be riding in boxes I fear.
