Known Problems
The fuel injection system for the 2.0L turbo engine places fuel directly into the combustion chambers. This is called "direct injection". Due to the high fuel pressure associated with this type of system a noticeable clicking noise can be heard from the fuel injectors.

The 2007-2009 Solstice GXP is known to have issues with the EVAP system, a part of your emission control system.

The EVAP canister vent valve or valve solenoid wiring may fail causing illumination of the check engine light, setting code P0446, and problems filling the tank with fuel.

To correct the issue, the EVAP canister vent valve, solenoid, and wiring must be inspected. The most common fix is replacement of the wiring connector or replacement of the vent valve assembly.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

Brake fluid can become dirty and may cause problems in the brake system; it should be flushed every 60,000 miles.

Care must be taken when opening and closing the manual convertible top. The top is prone to damage from improper use.
