This car is a very unusual style - sort of like a mini-bat-mobile, so it really gets attention. It looks much more expensive than it actually is, and rides very smoothly. Has a great safety rating - I bought one for my daughter and another for my grand-daughter.
I have had this car for 3+ years. I always wanted a two door convertible and it's great. I constantly get folks wondering who makes the car because of it's stylish appearance. I fit comfortably in the car and just love to drive it with the top down. It sounds like a sports car and looks like a sports car and/or roadster! However, it doesn't have much storage at all so luckily I have another car to drive when I need it. I use this car to drive back and forth to work on a daily basis.
The 2006 Solstice is quite possible the funnest car I have ever driven. My first car was the 87 Fiero GT, the Solstice brings back this nostalgia and then pours on the sweetness of the 21st century. The Solstice has great performance, the first turn of the ignition is a pleasant low growl as the engine turns over and sets the tone for the rest of the drive. The sound system with sub woofer in dash 6 disc (mp3 disc), satellite XM/AM/FM, and Aux line in provided unlimited options for any audiophile who loves to drive with great tracks. Steering is tight, responsive and accelerating through the gears of the 5 speed makes this car a drivers dream. The car turns heads and draws plenty of compliments from people. For me, this car is grand..sure I could have bought a Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, you name it...but ask yourself how many you see in the daily drive. The Solstice is flat out unique. For the price point and features you just cant beat it sure its major competition is the Miata but look at the Miata....tiny tires...narrow body ...mundane aesthetics. Then look at the 245 wide tires 18" wheels and the styling the Solstice proudly displays with its wide stance and road hugging height...nothing else needs to be said.
