Miscellaneous Thoughts: 2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe GXP test-drive updates

2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe

As we told you earlier this morning, we’re test-driving the new 2009 Solstice Coupe GXP this whole week. We’ve already received a bunch of questions via Twitter on the site. So here are some of the answers.

Pat: How hard is it take the roof on and off…. GM says that one person can do it alone? Have you tried it out yet?

While GM says that it is very easy for one person to take the top off since it only weighs 31 pounds – it’s almost impossible without two individuals involved in the process. We’re not saying it can’t be done by one person – but we’d recommend two if you don’t want to damage the top.

Name: Does it feel like a quality car?

While some parts of the car do feel solid – we expect a lot more for a car priced over $33,000. After you take the top off and throw it back on – you hear a lot of crackling noises while driving.

TheoriginalASDF: How is the trunk space compared to the regular Solstice? Because in the regular solstice, you could almost fit about a bag of groceries in it if the bag was emptied around the giant lump in the trunk.

Trunk space is ridiculously small. You can fit a bag or three of groceries or two laptop bags with ease.
