Pontiac Solstice Questions
I have a 2007 Pontiac Solstice and the dashboard and radio lights dim at times. At first I thought it was because of going from the garage to sunlight, but it has also dimmed while driving down the road (during all types of weather). Im hoping its a fuse issue but since I just bought this car wo...
Is this definitively a battery issue or could it be something else

Pontiac Solstice Recalls
In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.
These vehicles are being recalled because the weight on the key ring and/or a jarring event while driving may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern.
The seat belt anchor bolt mountings may not be sufficiently strong enough to secure the belt in an accident. Dealers will inspect the inboard seat studs and if necessary remove the stud and install a bolt free of charge to resolve the concern.
Pontiac Solstice Reviews
My car is doing the exact thing as the other person reviewing the2007 solstice. As I am slowing down the brakes suddenly apply really hard scaring te crap out of me!
The Solstice is a really fun car to drive. I've had issues with the car jerking (hard jerks) when slowing down to stop as if the breaks are locking up. Scary!
2006 Solstice with leather interior. Leather seats stretch out quickly and the bottom bunches up. Plastic dash and interior door handle bars are quick to get dirty but easily cleaned. Only problem it ever had at 88,000 miles now was a bad Solenoid in the transmission that caused a jerky when shifting to lower gears. Cost about $700 to replace due to transmission labor costs. Otherwise great car...
