2008 Pontiac Solstice GXP turbo. - Treat Yourself! Get noticed! The car is perfect for weddings, taking that special someone out on a fantastic date, or just driving through the countryside. This is an enjoyable convertible car that gets a lot of looks! Fits two passengers in style but not much more. Put the top down and enjoy the sun. Low mileage car in perfect running condition. Leather bucket seats, great sounding radio, etc. The Solstice was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award and Design of the Year award from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada for 2006. It was a runaway hit for Pontiac. Powered by a 2.0 L (121.9 cu in) I4 Ecotec engine equipped with a dual-scroll turbocharger. This is a real sports car with a 5-speed manual transmission, 260 HP turbo engine. The main issue you will have with the car is not wanting to return it. The car is only 17 minutes from the Portland airport, a quick Uber or Lyft ride away. The car will always have a full tank of gas and be spotless inside and out when you pick it up. Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all. My typical response time is under 5 minutes. No smoking in the car, even with the top down. Thank you. Most of the time I can meet you for a personal handshake and key passing ritual. But if you need the car quickly, I have a lockbox with the key inside so you can pick up the car anytime. I will need a picture of your driver's license sent to me, and then I can provide the combination to get into the lockbox. Makes sharing super easy for everyone! Renting a car on Turo is like renting a car from a friend. Keeping that in mind, and because this is a convertible, I prefer to hand wash the car myself. I ask that you do not take the car through a car wash. I do not want the convertible top damaged. Because of this, I offer prepaid cleaning for only $8.00; please add it at check out. That includes inside and outside cleaning the car. This is cheaper than taking it through a car wash. Premium unleaded gas needs to be used in this turbo car, please keep your receipts so I can verify.

I am happy to share my car with you. Here are some quick tips about the car. The Solstice is a smaller car with very little to no storage, so please keep that in mind. The top fits in the back of the already small trunk, so if it is down, you have limited trunk space. The convertible top is manual, and I will go over details with you on how it operates. The main thing to check is to make sure the "flaps" retract before locking down the top. For AC, you need to push the temperature button, so the light comes on. Cold AC. This car has a manual 5-speed transmission. Did you know that the five-speed manual transmission in this car is the same as in the Hummer H3, GMC Canyon, and Chevrolet Colorado? No smoking in this vehicle even if the top is down. Filling up the gas tank (Premium gas). When I fill up the gas tank of this vehicle I fill it up at Fred Meyers which is about 2 miles away from my house. I kindly ask that you do the same, Filling it up in Portland or Longview and then driving it 20-50 more miles before you drop it off is not filling it up. If I notice this, I will take the vehicle down, fill it up correctly and then submit a charge for this. Please, be fair with me as I am far with you.


  • Any Truck room?
    You do not have much trunk space in this car. If the top is down, it goes in the trunk meaning you have limited space available. I am willing to store your items in an unused room if they do not fit in the car. You could fit a few small duffle bags in back.
  • Can I leave my vehicle when I pick up the car?
    Yes. This is private property with room to leave your vehicle. Our yard also has 24 hour video recording and is on a dead end street.

Was super cool about a more or less last minute, short notice rental. Excellent communication. Would absolutely rent from again.
