I've decided to start listing low mileage SKYs I run across on Craigslist for sale in this one thread. Generally, I only post cars with 20K or less miles. I already do this on the Sol forum, but I'm not sure how long I'll do it here. NOTE:if the car is a GXP I will list that after the year, if not listed it can be assumed that it is a N/A 2.4.

Just to help out with what someone is thinking they should pay for a low mileage Sky. I just purchased my 2008 Redline, 5spd. Multi Disc Stereo with the Premium Speaker system with 3966 total miles on Feb 16th 2016. The agreed upon price was $16,700. After dealer fees tax, tag & title the final number was around $18,600. This price also included a 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty with no expiration date.
Only known issues
Passenger cup holder is jammed in. (Plan to fix or replace)
Air Deflector under the front end has a chunk broken out of it ($43 part)(Plan to replace)
Front Bumper underneath is scraped up.
Tiny Pea size tear in the outer layer of the soft top. (Will be looking for options on this)

I think it is worth money like that with only 1400 miles, but would be concerned about where it was stored and if it has been moved at all in the last 6 years. For me the evening blue/midnight blue is a huge draw back. I love the color, but for me it does not scream sports car. It screams old, going bald, getting gray, no ass, big gut, computer geek, or in other words Robo!!!!!:laugh::laugh::laugh:>:)

Just teasing, I really like the color, it is amazing in the evening, the different colors it changes to is kool.

Hope someone that appreciates it, gets it. Truly almost brand new.

Hey now skerfan, let's not knock the midnight blue thing and Robo too. I think the dark blue as just the opposite appeal. A non traditional look to a sport car. Another red Ferrari at the stop light. Oh how ordinary. Same color as that Prius over there. Now an all black Ferrrari, or a dark blue one, with coffee colored leather interior, ( ask Wayne about that one ) will catch or turn heads a different way, than say just another yellow and black kappa you might see out an about in Ca. lol Somewhere Robo is smiling. The kappa looks good in any color IMO. Some appeal to others out there, who don't own one, yet. Low miles, always at the top of my list. I like less wear and tear. Stored for years, yeah might be a problem. 1400 miles, yeah let's talk. I'll trade mine in, and some cash for that. When I am done with the blue one I have now, pretty sure I am going with a different color next time around. Maybe yellow and black. Nah that's an old man sport car look. lol. I be looking for a new color, not your normal factory see the same thing at the next stop light. Kawasaki Green maybe? Nah that's been done all ready. Seen it before. Some guy in Ca. had one at a show (cough, cough ). That's like so yesterday. Fat and balding and geekish too? Nothing a new color can't fix. Well maybe not in Robo's case, but hey you are what you are.

Lot of good stuff here for owners and future owners to pay attention to. In the market for some fun in your life? Mid-life crisis? Trying to impress the new blonde babe in the neighbor hood? Maybe... she does have nice legs. She was wearing that midnight blue dress after all.

2009 Saturn Sky this one is 2000$ more and only has 1,400 miles
Surprised they don't list it's a Redline in the headline. I want to say this blue is a one year only color, but I'm not sure if any 2010s came in this blue. BTW, this color looks way better in the sun.

Robo, knows I like the color, just where I live it will not work, that is the reason the Green car is green. Too much work to keep those dark colors looking good. Living 2 miles in on a dirt road, in our drought just makes it heck to say the least.

Plus I like to mess with him, trust me he needs it!!! We are actually good friends, not just internet buddies.

Engine thoughts and/or new engine WHERE?

CHOPTOP,
you seem to be the man.
I have a SATURN 2.4 Ecotec 2008 tests

Knew of issue missing, when purchased 2/12/16
Compression, o304 misfire, Compressions (cranked 10 times)
COLD HOT WET

#3 120, 115 165
#4 80, 60 100
#3 -4 gasket not an apparent issue (#3 wet test response)
Injector test All 60# start, 3 clicks, 6-7# finish
Coil and plugs - tests swapped o304 misfire stayed on #4
Oil fill at Idle heavy air flow, @ 3000rpm little or none.


NEXT TEST or Action?
1st Valve cover removal, Visual inspection of valve train components.
2nd remove head, inspect valves and components.
OR JUST Replace engine??
IF SO any idea for engines, What other model car motors fit and any changes needed if FWD car engines? I live north of Chicago.

Expense/cost to date $7700.00

Sorry Creinator, I have very limited mechanical knowledge, you'd be better served re-posting your question in the general forum. Another SKY/Sol forum is Kappaperformance forum. Most members are on the east coast, but several are very knowledgeable about the engine, so between here and there you'd get more answers. Good luck.
