Solstice GXP love affair.
By edgar robertson on


2008 Pontiac Solstice GXP 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


This car is very well received at any local show and shines, and parades, that I have entered it in. I have never found that lowering the top is a problem. And, I routinely complete the task, in 15 seconds. Raising it is only slightly more time consuming, requiring 28-30 seconds. The power window switches could have been better placed. I would have preferred wind up windows, and side pockets. The cup holders, I really could care less. A bigger trunk, would be a great help for weekend touring. But with some creative packing, two can go on a weekend cruise. I also, do not require A/C in a roadster, and would have appreciated the weight savings, and possible extra horse power. Stereo 1st class!

Best Features

Power, body style, handling, traction is great. This car has the factory sport suspension, and limited slip differential. It is turbo charged, and gets 32-36 mpg. I like the feel and support of the seats. The sport pedals. The dealership gave me an exceptional deal.Car well treated, full of gas.

Worst Features

Trunk space, reposition cup holders, side pockets if possible, in the doors. offer a luggage rack on the rear deck. reposition power window switches on drivers side. Fender extensions on wheel wells, to prevent rocks, debris from flying up. Better mirrors, improve visibility, especially with top up
