I just wanted to share my first day driving impression with all of ya'll of my fabulous SKY! Well, I guess amazing would just about cover it! The Chili Pepper Red is absolutely stunning. The tan and black interior accent the car beautifully. For anyone who ordered an automatic, well, you will be very pleased! It drives like a dream. Plenty of pick up and it shifts effortlessly. The monsoon system sounds great. I think it has great clarity, even when the top is down. I don't have any issues with the blindspots or seeing over or around the little humps in the back. Also, I got the spoiler and that doesn't affect the visibility at all. Just as a reference on that point, I am only 5 foot 5 and wondered if it would be an issue and luckily it's not! The handling of this car is amazing. I had also checked on how much clearance there was between the tires and fender wells ( is that the correct term?) and there is plenty so I'm not worried about that incessant rub some have experienced. All in all my expectations have been exceeded. This car is so worth the wait. It is beautiful, drives incredibly and the interior is really very nice. Oh, and those that were on hold like I was for the chrome wheels, you will not be disappointed! They are gorgeous! I am going to thoroughly take tons of pictures tomorrow, top up, top down, inside and out to post! Thanks to all who have shared their experiences and input about this fabulous car. For all of you still waiting and getting fed up, your patience will be rewarded. I am still stunned that mine has made it home after so many months waiting.

Love your take on Sky, particularly the automatic. We are trying hard to enjoy other's good fortunes while we constantly reassure ourselves that waiting works. Look forward to pics! Congrats:thumbs: .

just make sure you check the correct location on the fenderwells, they are the rear fenderwells towards the front of the car, you will see a protrusion, you should have at least enough room to get your fingers between the protrusion and the tire...

I am 5'4" and petit. When I sat in the Sky, it seemed to set very low. Although I could see all around, I wish the seat would raise. I read on a previous thread that Saturn was going to add a height adjustment to the seat starting after the summer shut-down so I contacted Saturn. They said there were no plans to make that change but they would forward the suggestion to the design dept.

I saved my yellow pages.:lol:
