I hate it!!!

2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I regret every buying this car! Sure, it is fun with the top down and driving on weather permitting outings, but otherwise it stinks. My car has been in the shop three different times and had a camshaft sensor problem that was repaired. The motor seems sluggish IMO and it is fairly quick, but seems harsh for a turbo. Power is not a smooth delivery. Clutch is quirky with a notchy shift linkage. The damn thing is horribly uncomfortable and interior is cheap at best. No room for anything.The top execution could be much better. The car is not what I expected. Fuel economy on the highway is good and it looks good, but otherwise I hate it!!!! I would trade this pain in a heartbeat if I could.

Best Features

Fuel economy and the way the car looks.

Worst Features

BUILD QUALITY ON THE ENTIRE CAR AND REFINEMENTS TO THE HARSH MOTOR. The motor feels and sounds like a cheap car such as a Z24 did back in the day.The lines where body parts meet are uneven.
