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


This car had only 2,600 miles on it when we picked it up in Florida two weeks ago.
We drove it back 1,300 miles to upstate NY. Fun experience is at the top. Seats are comfortable but soft top noisey on the road. No storage to speak of but, we brought our supplies in duffle bags.
Suitcases are out of the question. Some items can be place behind the seats but only with seats slid forward. 27.2 mpg driving highways and speed limits.
Small gas tank (13gals.).
The turbo engine is super responsive. It does get the looks and positive comments from friends. It fits the bill for what we were looking for. A 2,600 mile trip in two weeks.
Top speed 145 & 0 -60 in 5.5 sec. (haven't confirmed either)

Best Features

LOOKS, turbo engine responsives, comfortable seats, great sound system, chrome attributes, top easy to lower (raise) and store, XM radio, LOOKS, ride feel OK but a sports car. Did I mention it looks GREAT ! Decent gas milage. Mix gas by alternating between regular & +plus at fill ups at half tank levels. Works good so far.

Worst Features

Softer suspension for better ride. No spare tire, just an included air pump and stop leak ? Maybe another cup holder (1 included). Storage space. The snap down rear roof flaps look good but getting to be a nuisance already. Padded arm rests - I use new cloth hand towels where appropriate or else my elbows get sore. Hard to see stop lights change when stopped without bending your head down. Rear view better than expected using all three mirrors.
