This car was purchased as a replacement for a 2004 Sunbird Poitiac, the car is excellent in both handling, performance, and looks. The 18" tires make it a great ride, the gas mileage is around 20 in the city, and 24 on the road, it is hard to keep the car down under 70 MPH, it likes to run. The V-6 engine is plenty fast on take off and the transmission is smooth. My car has all the options, including heated seats, auto lights, Moonson radio, exterior start. My car is a hard top convertible with the top folding down into the trunk, it works to a tee. Having owned many Pontiacs to me this is the top of the line. I would recommend this car to everyone.
We love love love this baby! We sold our Harley Electra-Glide and were missing a little "spark". Well,we sure got a blaze when we bought our Solstice. Sooo much fun to drive, plenty of zoom,and boy do we get great comments. My hubby bought this for me and other than I wish the seat was more adjustable I think he spoils me ROTTEN! Go for it you won't regret it! Red convertibles forever! (I deducted one star for the lack of seat height adjustment)
First of all, being born in Britain I am used to cars being small and under-powered. But this also means a car that has generally good handling as we're used to ripping around roundabouts and tight country lanes. In the ten years I've been in the US I haven't seen many US designed and built cars under $20,000 that qualify as "European". That is until you get to the Pontiac G6. I had rented a Pontiac Grand Prix a few years back and was impressed. Then last year I got to drive a G6 (in 2.0l form, not the 3.5l V6) which was nice in terms of build, but not quick enough. But that experience was enough that when I was in the market for a reasonably priced used car, I first searched for a G6. I found a 3.5l V6 Pontiac G6, which had previously been a lease car, and was in immaculate condition with not a scratch on it. Add to that the fact that it had only done 9,500 miles and I knew it was a great deal. The engine and gearbox combo is great. With a light foot she's a nice easy ride that positively glides everywhere. But if you keep the accelerator towards the floor and she'll keep the revs high and move very quickly. It's especially good at accelerating between 50-70 when you just want to pass that irritating guy in the middle lane. It appears the gearbox was designed just for this maneuver. The disc brakes all around give good stopping ability too. Handling is great around town and as I implied earlier evokes a more European feel. Even my father who is a devout Audi fan commented on how firm it felt. On a few occasions, in the wet especially, you can get some under steer in low speed bends. But I would expect that, rather than over steer, in a road car. The driving experience is most pleasant inside. Visibility out front is more than adequate, but rear-view isn't perfect due to the head restraints in the back. I am considering removing them temporarily as they create a blind spot. As for downsides there are a few concerning aerodynamics. When you have your driver's side window open a few inches you can get a very load and unsettling buffeting noise at about 40mph. You can get rid of it by also lowering the rear passenger window about the same amount. Secondly, it's not the easiest car to get into if you are 6 foot 3 like me, but once inside it is very comfortable with plenty of headroom.
