I am not sure how much I will use it, now that I see how difficult it is to put on the car. The cover was damaged with the installation at the dealer (or was damaged when I got it since it had never been out of the box I am not sure) now I really can't use it until it is repaired. It has been a frustrating experience. Now I am waiting to see what if anything the dealer will do for us. The car and cover were purchased from another dealer out of state so who knows.

My wife is crazy about the Solstice. It would have to be her daily driver. Space isn't issue, but we're wondering about how the car would do in a Michigan winter. Any opinions/experiences?

We live in Iowa and the Solstice sat in the garage last winter and will again this winter. I did drive it in the snow a couple of times just because I got caught out and it started to snow, it held the road OK on my short (2 mile) drive home. I was a nervous wreck!!! This car is so low that if you had much snow or had to drive before the roads were plowed I think you would be in trouble.

I'm in the same situation as Ken. Live in Michigan and my wife is crazy about the GXP. The obvious main concern is the rear wheel drive and handling in the snow/ice... Any other brave MI Solstice owners out there with opinions/experience?

I live in Indiana and drive my GXP year-round. There are 4 or 5 days during the winter when I have to park it and take my 1980 K-10. The biggest issue is ground clearance or lack thereof. The ice/slush builds up in the center of the road from normal traffic and hammers the front valence. 3 or more inches of snow is pretty much the max it will take.
With rain, I drop my speed about 10 MPH and watch for standing water. I do stay dry inside however, even with heavy downpours.
