My GXP Coupe (2009) lasted 76 months made it 25,000 miles and started leaking. Drive every week. This is definitely a week point or perhaps a bad batch of water pumps.

Here is a summary of the three polls (Two for Solstice and One for Sky):

63 Cars Reported
13 Pump Failures

For the NA:
>21% Failure Rate for 29 Cars
>83% of the Failures Occurred Over 50k Miles
>67% of the Failures Occurred When Driven Regularly

For the Turbo:
>21% Failure Rate for 33 Cars
>29% of the Failures Occurred Over 50k Miles
>29% of the Failures Occurred When Driven Regularly

This is still too small of a population to be meaningful (if anything ever could be) and by trying to fit it into a poll I realize that I did not get detailed enough information.

It appears that storing the car for months at a time increases the odds of a pump failure, but it is far from conclusive.

When your pumps failed, where was it leaking from? The top or the side? or the outlet gasket?

I have some type of failure but I'm not sure. I will say that the car sat for a whole year before I just bought it and it had a nasty bearing noise coming from somewhere, but now that I have a coolant leak (unknown source near the WP), it has disappeared. I will vote when I find out definitively on my WP situation.
