Model Highlights

For 2009, both Solstice coupe and convertibles come in two trims. The base convertible and coupe feature a 5-speed manual transmission standard and a 2.4L DOHC aluminum 4-cylinder engine that produces 173 horsepower and 167 lb of torque. Four-wheel disc brakes, a limited-slip rear differential, ABS, stability control, 18-inch aluminum wheels, traction control, a CD player with an auxiliary input jack and XM satellite radio are all standard. Both base trims have a starting price of just about $25,000.

The performance-oriented GXP trades the 2.4L Ecotec engine for a turbocharged 2.0L I4, boosting horsepower by nearly 50% to 260 and increasing torque to 260 lb. Along with the fiercer engine, the GXP receives a sportier 4-wheel independent suspension, dual exhaust outlets, and fog lamps. Convenience features such as cruise control, power mirrors and windows, remote keyless entry and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls are included as well. Both GXP models are price at about $30,000.

A broad array of options, including a 5-speed automatic transmission, leather seats, air conditioning, a 6-disc CD changer, and larger speakers help soften the Solstice's purposeful roadster experience. Metallic pedals and a rear spoiler are available on both trims, while the Club Sport Package adds ABS brakes, a limited-slip rear differential and a stiffer suspension to the base model.

Both models come with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, a 5-year/100,000 mile drivetrain warranty, a 6-year/ 100,000 mile corrosion warranty, and a 5-year/ 100,000 mile roadside assistance warranty.

The Base Trims achieve a fuel economy of 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, while the GXP trims boast 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.


Model News

In 2009, Pontiac introduces the Coupe to its Solstice line. The coupe provides Solstice drivers with a vehicle that has all the same specification and options as the 2008 Solstice but gives them the option of having a hardtop instead of a convertible top.

Also new to the 2009 Pontiac Solstice, limited-slip differential, ABS and stability control are now standard on the base Solstice.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Pontiac Solstice is a terrific blend of affordability and exceptional styling, while the GXP adds performance to the mix. More standard features, such as traction control and XM satellite radio, make the Solstice an even better value than last year.


Pros

Sensuous looks; affordable; turbo power optional.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR, 2007-2010 Pontiac G5, 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, and 2007-2010 Saturn Sky vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position.

Consequence
If the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "off" position, the vehicle could roll away: (a) for an automatic transmission, if the transmission is not in the "Park" position; or (b) for a manual transmission, if the parking brake is not engaged and the transmission is not in the "Reverse" position. This potential for rollaway increases the risk for a crash and occupant or pedestrian injuries.

General Motors will notify owners, and for vehicles that were built with the defective ignition cylinder and have not previously had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will replace the ignition cylinder and cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. For vehicles that were built with the redesigned ignition cylinder or had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Chevrolet owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac owners at 1-800-762-2737, and Saturn owners at 1-800-553-6000. General Motors' number for this recall is 14113 for the ignition lock cylinder and key replacement, and 14133 for only key replacements. Note: Until a vehicle has been remedied, owners and operators are advised that when exiting, to be sure that the vehicle is in "Park," o...

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice and 2007-2010 Saturn Sky vehicles. The Passenger Air Bag Suppression System (PPS) sensor may become bent or damaged within the front passenger seat, possibly disabling the front passenger air bag.

Consequence
In the event of a crash, if the front passenger air bag does not deploy as intended, the front passenger has an increased risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Pontiac customer service at 1-800-762-2737 or Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 17036.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
