“not so cool” Solstice
I just found out (from the official specs) that the Solstice does not offer side airbags.
That’s a big turn off in my book. Especially after watching side impact crash tests conducted a few months ago, showing a huge difference in safety between cars with and without that option…
And newer convertibles like the Mazda MX5, or even the New Beetle include oversized airbags on the side that also protect your head.
I think that is a big mistake from GM. That and the lack of Automatic for at least 5 month!
I just hope I’m wrong…
