Looking at the pontiac.com web page and clicking on Solstice, and looking at the price information you will see:
Solstice
Base MSRP: $19,995* before incentives

What are these "incentives" they are talking about??? I didn't think there were any.

There is no incentives - they show the price on all their vehicles this way and then if there are incentives......

The disclaimer is on there so they do not have to update that web page in the event that they do offer an incentive on the car. The chances of seeing any incentives are pretty slim for the forseable future.

The "incentive" is to only pay $2085 for $3000 charge for $125 in protectants and peace- of-mind (see USAMillionaire situation now resolved)

Translation:

1. Body is warping after sitting in the sun for an hour.
2. Solstice will be discontinued after the first 1000. Cause: Too much fustration at GM.
3. But since it stays connected at the butrusses it acts like a big parchute and gently slows you to a stop.
4. Actually, leather is coming from Canada except they forgot about the import ban on cows.
5. All five of them.
6. About time they got realistic.
7. Those are Solstice mini toy models only, not the real cars.
8. Along with all of the other unaccounted for first 1000 cars.

12. Waiting for shipment of windsheild washer fluid.
13. Redesigning trunk to hold 2 golf bags.
14. Pigeons roosting on tops left out in the parking lot have caused stains that can not be removed until cleaning lady comes in on Thursday.
15. Leather did not have enough "natural" marks left in it from barbed wire, manure burns, etc.

Hey, that might be an incentive. I think Tuckers are cool (although he should have named it something else!).

Solstice to be remaned Equinox?!?

If the Chevy Equinox didn't already exist, I'd try starting a rumor that since GM was so late with the Solstice, it was going to rename the car the Equinox for the Fall Equinox in September!
:lol:

Undetected leak in hydraform press contaminated metal prior to coating and painting, causing hoods to rust prematurely. Only way to know which cars are involved is to hold all cars on the back lot for 90 days. More incentive for dealers to add $495 "rust proofing".
