As it has been addressed in other posts -- the problem is minor as it tends to get better with time and weathering a bit. I think it also is due to temperature fluctuations. I personally hardly notice it and I know I won't from the driver's seat.:thumbs:

Why are you so nit-picky? Any cloth top has a certain sag to it. Show me a cloth top that doesn't have a sag and I'll show you a top that will rip under the weather. Skip...owned convertabiles for 30 years. :thumbs: :thumbs:

do you buy your suits with the pants to short.it`s not picky!can we say poor design.with in a very short time you will notice a change in how the factory sends out the cars...but remember you won`t want yours adjusted because that would be picky.

I guess I'm a little nit-picky, too. :yesnod: Because I noticed it also, and have expressed concern over it. It won't stop me from buying the car, but I do hope that Saturn comes up with a 'fix' down the road. I'm going to check out my dealers Sky today...I plan on making note of how the lid fits.

Comparing apples to oranges. Have you ever owned a roadster? Skip...

I saw the top at the dealer and it looks fine. I don't have an issue with the small sag/pull.

Dont hold your breath....a few changes people thought they would see between the sol and the sky are still there...top...clunk etc.
they dont see it as a problem or they wouldnt be releasing cars this way so i wouldnt expect a magical fix for the RL

i know what you are talking about on the top and it really doesnt bother me at all

been to my dealer to see 2 SKYs in person and both tops were perfect. i think this guy just likes to nit pick to pass time while he is waiting for his redline. You did create your own RL site (with the same thread in it no less). maybe you should take your superiority complex over there?? If you like other cars better...get them. If you have nothing good to say...hmmm, how does that saying go?

Typically a car is considered foreign or domestic not based on where it is built (or even where it's parts are from) but where the HQ is located for the company selling it. The exception is DCX which has two world HQ's, the Chrysler Group being still here in the US while the Mercedes Group is in Germany. Thus "American" cars are GM, Ford, DCX-Chrysler, "European" cars are VW/Audi, BMW, DCX-MB and "Japanese" cars are Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.

In fact when a car's "content" is listed it goes by where the company is located, which is why the VUE Engine and Transmission supplied by Honda is listed as Japan even though the parts are made in Ohio. The reasoning is that where the company is located is where the most profit goes and thus that place gets the most $.

It's called unions. If no unions we would have cheaper autos and be able to park at the plants. Skip....:cheers: :cheers:
