Are you driving your new Sky or Solstice almost constantly? When you walk away from your new Sky or Solstice, do you feel anxious, nervous and depressed? Do you dream of driving your new Sky or Solstice only to wake up sitting in your Sky or Solstice in your Pajamas?

You're not alone. Thousands (okay, maybe just over a thousand) suffer from this same afliction. Sky/Solstice Motoring Infectious and Lingering Enjoyment Syndrome (SSMILES) is not your fault. The onset of SSMILES can even happen to those who have yet to purchase a Saturn Sky or Pontiac Solstice. Loss of sleep, loss of productivity at work, and a newfound drive to...well...drive are all symptoms of SSMILES.

The good news is, there is help. SSMILES support groups are begining to spring up across the country. These groups, using the name "car clubs" to reduce the stigma associated with joining a support group, can help you feel better about your SSMILES because you can share your SSMILES with others that have SSMILES. When joining these SSMILES groups, you will find the time to appreciate and bask in the fellow SSMILES members' Skys and Solstices while reducing the amount of time you spend driving your own Sky or Solstice.

Yes, many suffer blissfully unaware from SSMILES every day. While there is no cure and we doubt any SSMILES sufferes would accept one even if there was, SSMILES support groups...I mean "Car Clubs" around the country are becoming available and helping SSMILES patients around the country every day.

Isn't it time you got help with your SSMILES?

This is hilarious! Yet, there's so much truth to it, my car is all I ever think about anymore. I live in the DC area where the traffic is a nightmare. My 22 mile commute to work generally takes an hour and a half, each way. I used to dread it and have such road rage. Since I got my SKY only a month ago, I look forward to my commute now, actually, thinking about my ride home from work is what gets me through the day lately. I put almost 2K miles on my baby in the last 4 weeks.

I say, DRIVE and ENJOY! Dont worry about the miles!

sounds like we are on about the same pace, but I now have slacked off a little, but mine has 6260 miles in 2 months and 2 days...

No kidding... I actually opened my garage door 3 times last night to look at it. At one point I actually went out there to sit in the car and my wife came out and laughed at me.

only thing is it didn't work on ferris buehler.. and with today's odometers it does not matter if you are in froward or reverse, the mile will still go UP!. It counts pulses and cannot tell which way you are going....

Let me know when you are going to be in New York. My wife & I might be able to drive down & meet you somewhere. Maybe some other Sky owners from NE would be able to join us. That would be fun.:)

I'll be sitting on my couch watching tv and all of a sudden jump up and do something to my car. Last night I was watching TV, and in the middle of the Lost finale (which I couldn't wait to see) I thought about my car sitting out there so I grabbed a clean rag and leather conditioner and cleaned my seats. It's like a sickness. I can't stop. I find myself getting up to just look out the window at her when i'm home or at work. I need professional help.
