I think the biggest factor is age. Four years ago when you got your Solstice the average age was around 8. Now it is 12. Unless they become classics and age stops mattering, a 12-year-old car is going to sell for less than an 8-year-old car.

that's probably true, was looking at getting a newer jeep and was pricing what I could get for mine. the body style is a little older on mine but I've averaged 8400 miles per year, but that did not matter; the year made was the driving factor on price by far.

It’s amazing to me how many are still out there with less than 5,000 miles. I know this car lends itself to be a summer cruiser for some people but wow. If I didn’t love mine so much and have put so many personal touches on it I’d consider one of these super low mileage cars (especially the GXP’s).

VIN# 4257 Deep - Conv. pkg-Power pkg - ABS - LSD - floormats Mods: Kappashield - Chrome door locks - caliper decals - visor sticker covers - Kappa alum pedals - Vector ECM reflash - AEM Cold Air Intake - Flowmaster 40 exhaust - chrome fender vents - aluminum door sills - RK sport rear wing (best appearance mod yet) Norm’s Recessed Grills- awesome!coming soon -Norm’s GXP side skirts

second that.

when I started looking on autotrader, of course; seemed anything under 10k was rare and almost one someone was trying to save as a possible collector investment.

i'd drive mine more but the daily commute is full of potholes, road construction, distracted and crazy drivers and thunderstrorms that come in unforecasted; too many possibilities to mark mine up badly.
