Solstice GXP Coupe is as beautiful as it is rare. by Go_Drvn from Kansas City are on 08/21/2009. Trim: 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: The lines of the Coupe are similar to the convertible, but different enough to get attention on its own merit. The Coupe is rare enough that many people will never see one in person. This car drives and handles very well on twisty roads. Optional soft-top allows for top free driving without worrying about the weather. GXP has plenty of power for a car this size.
Cons: Hard top will not store in the car. Visibility more limited to the rear than the convertible.
Overall review: I liked the Coupe so much that I traded a 2006 Solstice convertible to get one. I would recommend the car to people that are not worried about hauling half the house when they travel or have to take a large family along. The car has more than enough room for a couple to pack and travel for a couple of weeks or for a trip to the grocery store. The car may be rare, but it is made to be driven. Future potential value is not a reason to buy this gem, once you drive it you will have to live with the permagrin that goes with ownership.

Only GM Sports Car by OSUCherokee on 01/11/2014. Trim: 2009 Pontiac Solstice Convertible, Owned 5 years.
Useful?
Pros: Owned my 2009 since it was new, and still love it! Always turns heads, and runs great on the street or the track. I have taken it racing at Hallett Raceway in Oklahoma as well as the twisties of Central Arkansas, and had a blast both times. One of the most fun vehicles I've ever driven.
Cons: Only a few issues to report after 50,000 miles. 1. Passenger airbag sensor has gone out. 2. Cupholder has broken once (repaired under warranty). 3. Thermostat has gone out, and needs to be replaced. All issues have been minor, and definitely not a show stopper. Lots of great advice on the solstice forum for adding new parts or replacing old ones. Great community!
Overall review: Fantastic car, and a great example for why Pontiac should still be around.
