Yes, we get it, you have concerns about the couple of problems that the car has at start of production. You do not have to keep posting about it over and over.

:agree: Getting to be a little much. Most first year cars have some problems. The Solstice had more serious problems than anything reported about the Sky so far. I'm actually supprised. Some of the problems could be chalked up to one defective part or even bad luck. Others are just fit and finish. Nothing that concerned me yet.

Gee thank you -- looks like out of 2000 cars there may be as many as FIVE (OH MY GOD -- five-5-cinco-V...) That have minor problems...
Well it looks like the entire SKY line of cars is a complete FLOP!
I bet {insert name of any vehicle on earth} would never have 5 cars with minor repairs in their shops -- I mean after all, there are only 7-8 mechanics in the WORLD! From what I hear they are nearly starving to death for lack of problematic cars.
What will we do? What CAN we do?
How can we the little people (speak for yourselves I'm 240 lbs...) cope with this disaster?
If it weren't for valiant and brave people to point out that these problems exist on 4-5 cars over and over and over and over and over again we might not notice...
Of course the FACT that Saturn is responding well, has a system in place to track and report EVERY little problem, to see if the defects are individual or traceable to a systemic problem, has no bearing...


Five cars a DOOMED to be plagued with problems... They might explode, spontaneously combust or even spell the end of mankind as we know it (hey I'm mankind, damn glad to know ya...). We all know once a car has experience a rubbed wheel well, gone through a isolated body panel crack or --- Heaven forbid -- has a bad computer chip (hey where are all those who said -- "When they make computers they don't have problems..." Perhaps they can't sign on today cause their computer isn't working)

This has lead me to cancel my order and I will buy that other car that will let me watch it as it is built to make sure that know-nothings that run the automotive business build it carefully -- I'll spend whatever it takes to pass the rigid testing required -- making sure only the finest materials are used -- perhaps I'll do destructive testing on every other part -- just to make sure the is no systemic defect overlooked by the engineers (After all this may be the first car they ever designed)... Then after I make sure every stitch is perfect (not acceptable -- PERFECT) each cup holder is custom positioned to where I need it; yet will not accidentally open. Once every thing is just perfect -- I want them to slap that baby together in 10 minutes and get it to my dealer overnight and I will not pay 1 penny over $26000.00 for it...


At least I won't be DOOMED to having a car... at all.

I'm actually more partial to my HK USP 45 Compact with tritium sights, myself...





Back on subject, glock, would you please read through ALL of the press regarding all of the other aspects of the SKY and Solstice? There's a lot more good than bad.


07 Chilli Pepper's problems are one of a kind. Nothing of this sort has shown before in ALL OF THE 2006 SOLSTICES or any of the other SKY's here. So, you've uncovered a really big 1 in 17,000 problem so far... :rolleyes:

I read through the thread (did YOU?) - and what I got out of it is that Saturn REALLY KNOWS HOW TO TREAT THEIR CUSTOMER. They figured out the problem, then found a way to rapidly fix it, provided a loaner vehicle... :thumbs: Great Job!

I have had a friend that had a problem with her RX-8, and she was treated like a passenger in steerage on the Titanic at the Mazda dealership. Eventually, she was told that she was exaggerating - and in so many words that since she was exaggerating, she should just go away, the oil consumption of a few quarts in 10,000 miles is normal...

What more do you want? It sounds like if there is a car that has teething problems, thank heavens it is a Saturn.

if the sky and sol are the same car underneath, just different bodys, then the sol has been the test car for the sky. mechanically, the sky should be just like the sol. does the sol have any major defect mechanically?:confused:

then the problems with the sky will be cosmetic, like body panels don't fit, paint doesn't match, seats stretch, etc. nothing major!:thumbs:

No Major mechanical problems that I have read. All the problems that I have read about have been minor, as are any problems that have been seen on the Skys.

Espcially since Saturn has been willing to fix them.

New owner, with :eek: NO PROBLEMS????!?!?!!?!?

Imagine that... :rolleyes:


Antz1 - I don't have time to mess around with PM and such with you - you will gain some respect and civility in your future posts, or you will not be participating.

You claim to want so much to have the 'truth' spoken, but all you are doing is alienating everyone by being uncivil and disprespectful. Why criticize everyone on this board for spending time here by.... spending time here? We're hopeless, why not move on to miata.net and harass them for a while...

And quit with the "crappy interior" comments and come back with some data - like a list of the materials used on the MX-5 interior and the SKY interior - and THEN tell me that the MX-5 materials are "soooo much more quality".

what you will find out is that they are the same stuff that most <$30,000 cars use on their interior.
