I've have lost track on how many people have gotten their Sky, so please if you are an owner sign in.

I also would be interested in knowing if any of you new owners have had any issue with the drive line "clunk" or leaking pinion seal as is the case with about 12% of the Solstice owners cars from our sister site.

Got mine...

It clunks occasionally, but I don't consider it an issue. Absolutely no problems with leaks or other workmanship issues. Car is still perfect at 1,926 miles.

I have had mine 2 months now. The only problem I have had with it is that I can't go 1 mile without someone stopping me and falling in love with it.

Please...This is not intented to be a general problem or fault thread. I only want to know about the drive line. I have a feeling the carrier (diff.assembly) in the Sky is somehow different from that of the Solstice. At this point there is no hard evidence to prove that, but if we don't have a leak issue on your cars show up before 6K +- miles we may learn something. It is believed that there is a new part # for the carrier in the Solstice now and it might be that the Sky hit the ground with this newly designed part in place. At this point we just don't know...Yet! Thanks. :cheers:
Please indicate if your an owner on the single option poll.

Tant no problem with my rear end, tant no problem with the SKY rear end either. Tant heard no clunk but then I don't shift at low rpm's. Only have 800 miles on it so far. At 1000 miles I will change oil and have Saturn of Huntsville check the rear end, not mine but my cars.......Skip.....:lol: :lol: :cool:

New Sky

Picked up my SKy on 4-28-2006 Vin:100583
Had to much oil in crankcase, and there was no license plate light.
They kept it 2 days to fix the license plate light.
So ckeck all your lights and oil level

picked it up 5/26
500 miles

wheel rub issue (has the factory fix, but looks like the fasteners popped out)
lots of wind noise behind passenger and drivers head (maybe normal, gonna take the dealer demo out for spin to see if its the same.)
very slight clunk when shifting a low rpms, but not as bad as the dealer demo.
Dash vent stuck on open. air comes thru vents at freeway speeds as if the fan were on

no major issues.
