My first '08 Solstice was a disaster. EVERYTHING besides the drive train broke in the first 24 months. I bought my wife's '08 a few months ago. (Yes, I had to buy it from her) It has been perfect from day one, go figure. I noticed that on this one, even at 115 degrees in traffic, the temp never goes above 203, usually no more than 198. On my old one, it regularly ran at 228 to 233. Have a suspicion that the engine would also have gone in short order on the old one. Double glad I got rid of it. The Camaro I bought with the old Sol as trade in, has been perfect. Even with the V6, it would run circles around my '66 Dodge 440. Good thing they don't make cars like they used to...30 mpg on the Camaro...12 on the Dodge, and light years better.
