21,143 on my sly GXP. I just purchased it, but I have all service records, and only ever had routine maintenance, and the rear bumper replaced from a low speed fender bender.

I have 45k on mine....if your cold weather area and a GXP, I would recommend doing the plugs around 35-40k.....Mine has had a "cold - boost that's not there" issue (I think the boost is blowing out the spark) and I've been told it's the plugs. I'm doing them this next week, so I'll let you know!

They are VERY easy to do. Pull the plug wire (coil pack) off the plug, unscrew it, make sure the gap is correct on new plug, a little anti-sieze, make sure its seated properly, screw it down and torque it to spec, press wire down shaft on plug, replace screw holding wire down.....done. About 30 minutes to replace all 4.

I did my Mustang GT and to get the 8th one out on the passenger side was 4 hours!!! I had to remove the fuel regulator (and de-pressurize the fuel system), the bracket holding the fuel regulator and another bracket, then had to use 2 bendable sockets to get it out and in and hope I didn't re-thread the head....awful!!

We are now up to just over 35k on ours. It still has a miss(only at idle) that wont quit, changed the plugs to no avail. Had to replace a door handle that the PO had cobbled together, and I just noticed today that the rear axle is leaking. I'm assuming from the pinion but the car isn't here for me to check. We got a bunch of snow today and the wife was afraid to drive it home.

Sly 06 with 91K miles. In the shop right now getting a new top. An old oak tree in my neighborhood fell onto some power lines and pulled a guideline off of the pole outside my house...and directly onto my beautiful solstice! Major bummer.

2006 (#588) Sol with 101,400. It seems like another life time ago when my youngest daughter and I took a drive to the factory in Delaware and got a chance to see solstice's in every color...even factory workers were driving cars to the fence so that we could see them up close. A truly great experience!

Fast forward to this week. Bought a new car and my wife insisted I keep the Solstice!!! How awesome is that!

Ordered my Sol...

2007 Base model has almost 45K miles on it (pretty great for my daily drive). Only issues were from the previous owner not treating a great car so greatly.

Shadow just hit 50k last Thursday. It took 6 years and 330 days as a daily driver to get that far. Hopefully I can use it for many miles and days to come.
