Personally I like the look of the GTO better. I guess we will have to go and drive them. Does the GTO have a sport suspension or a soft ride? Some sport suspensions are just not good. I don't want to feel every bump or road irregualarity. I told hubby not smart to look at the soliace just because Michigan has bad winters. Does anyone know are all 3 cars rear wheel drive?

I believe the GTO has what has been deemed a "nice compromise" in the suspension department. Not to harsh a ride, but still sporty and firm. And about the drive wheels, the GTO and Solstice (correct way to spell that; I checked, hehe ) are RWD, G6 is FWD, I believe (might be an AWD option on the G6; I don't know, but I doubt it...)

If you want more info on the '05 GTO and G6 (Solstice isn't out yet), visit http://auto.consumerguide.com/Auto/N...6/Act/Showall/ They'll confirm what I've been saying about the GTO, at least...

Only get the 300c Hemi! Dont waste your time on the v6 models. Cant go wrong with a full size sedan that'* company is owned by Mercedes.

Get an '05 GTO, rather than an '04. 50 more horses, plus it'* less likely to have bugs because it'* the second year of production...
