Frans, in all honestly, I've never seen Major, nor even heard of it (same goes for Zegapin) however, I can confidently discredit Gundam SEED. I've barely seen any of it, but what I saw was horrible. For good mech shows, watch Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and Diebuster for great justice.
All three series suffer from plot holes pretty much by being what they are- short OVA series. Agreed, Sola could have definitely been better written, but the characters (read: Matsuri) redeem the writing IMO.

As someone who has slogged through all ~100 episodes of SEED+Destiny, I can tell you that while SEED might be worth a try, Destiny is a complete waste of time. It essentially repeats the storyline with more annoying characters, even the old characters get more annoying (Kira especially).
