We should start a list of bugs and compare among Sky owners.

1) Weatherstriping along trunk where trunk meets the rear window needs replacing, poor fit from factory...part on order.

2) Rear axle caster not to factory specs off factory line. Caused tires to scrap wheel well and do minor damage. Also caused thump noise while driving. Dealer realigned car under warranty.

The thump noise you talked about, what caused it? When I go over a large bump I can hear a loud clank/thump noise above the left rear wheel. Almost sounds like something is lose and banging against the quater panel.

Get down on your knees and look inside the wheel well. There is a plastic flap that sticks out on the side of the door. Your tire could be rubbing it if your caster is out of alignment. You will see scuff marks on the plastic if it is happening. When parked, you should be able to see a distance between your tire and the plastic.

The cause on my car was the caster being out of spec. There have been several Sky and SOL with this problem.

Check the right side also.:thumbs:

Take the baby in and have the alinement checked . Might be caused by rear axle not having correct alinement. One or both sides could be off. Remember they strap these machines down pretty tight on the transporters. Just a thought......Skip, ..thoughtful for a Sunday morn...:lol: :lol:

P.S. Wish I had my car, but as of now it's still only on a piece of paper somewhere in Del.
