Pontiac has been bending over backwards to try and catch all potential problems and trouble spots with this car. That still does not mean things won't turn up. No amount of testing can catch everything that actual buyers will encounter.

I keep referring to an experience earlier in the summer, because it left some impressions and that was one of the ride & drives. So, for what it's worth one tech staff member that I spent an hour with seemed very familiar with the "mules". He mentioned 2 1/2 years with the "program". I don't know exactly what that means but it sounded like he lived with the cars for a long time. I'll bet they shake 'em out pretty good. They all threw them around like there was no tomorrow that day and ask anyone who attended the r & d's those guys drove 'em like they wanted to break the wheels off.

I bet they have plenty of miles (Hard miles) on quite a few cars by now. Soon we'll be reading a report from some magazine about all the long term problems/no-problems with the Solstice.

Bought an '04 Malibu Maxx for a daily commuter...1st year car no troubles yet. I guess I don't worry about it...don't think it's that big a deal anymore.
