Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2009 Pontiac Solstice?
The car is maneuverable, easy to park, very attractive and sporty looking (really turns heads and gets numerous compliments), fun to drive, takes up very little space overall, just a fine looking piece of machinery.
Cons: How would you improve your 2009 Pontiac Solstice?
The trunk space sucks (you can hardly put a brief case in the rear. If they had redesigned the fuel tank, it would allow more space).
No spare tire (not even a small DONUT spare tire. This is pathetic. Again, they could have redesigned the fuel tank configuration to allow a tiny donut tire to be put in trunk for an emergency. GM should be ashamed to put people in danger or delayed and expensive position---just my opinion).
No roll bar in case car flips over (you're dead if the car turns over while driving) --very dangerous and makes me very uncomfortable.
Rag tops are just not secure for valuables kept inside or to prevent car theft or vandalism. Rag tops are also very noisy.
Trunk release mechanism also failed on mine. Could not get into trunk. Fortunately the top was up and not in trunk or I would not have been able to secure the vehicle. Not available in cloth seats for comfort or factory hard top (removable T-top).
Seats can't recline (too small size interior).
Arm rests not padded.
Side visibility is not good and in my opinion dangerous and rear visibility not that good either.
Saturn Sky is basically same car, just modified front, rear, and side vent and few other like alterations.
2009 Pontiac Solstice Review:
It's okay but not something to brag about. I would not buy another if they were still making them. But I like the car just the same.
