I dunno but I regard the Solstice as a roadster, not so much in the mainstream as the others. I voted on the Cobalt, hoping they keep the weight down.

I can't afford 2 NEW cars, so as much as I'd like the Solstice, I'd rather have my 79 Fiat with a new Saab 9-2 as my winter car.

That's strange, I never noticed that before. :blink:

That's just the initial availability. The Cobalt SS 2.4L sedan and coupe will have late availability, definitely after the first of the year. I'm sure I've posted that somewhere before, but people seem to gripe needlessly before they read the stuff I wrote in the past that already addressed the same gripe.

Initially, the SS/SC 2.0 was to have late availability as well, but Chevy thinks it will get a lot of positive press, and thus they want it out as soon as possible.

i emailed GM canada a few months back to see if there were plans to bring the solstice to canada. didn't get a definite answer ("we appreciate your interest; we are gauging public reaction at this point"). are most vehicles designed and built in north america built to canadian crash standards? i understand that when importing the GTO (for example) to the US it wasn't cost effective to bring it to canada too, but surely something homegrown like the solstice would be designed to survive north of the border. anyone know for sure?

I would't mind any of those but I had to go with the Cobalt SS/SC. I think it would be the most practical for me, personally....

I for one can't wait to see what these things can do!!

Canada's crash standards are more or less equivalent to USA regs, just a slight difference in bumper rating.

All vehicles (more or less) designed and built in North America are done to Canadian crash standards.
