I've been waiting on my Sky for 3 months now. I don't remember looking forward to getting something more in my life. The problem is I read the boards daily and I keep seeing all of the problems you Sky and Sol owners are having. Differential Leaks, Plain-old leaks, mis-aligned body parts, bad glue, odd sounds, and so on..................................

I am now wondering if I should actually take the car. I understand it's a new model and "things" are definitely going to pop up that can be fixed. My question to those of you who already have your Sky is this.

CONSIDERING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW......WOULD YOU STILL HAVE BOUGHT THE SKY????

Only thing I would have changed is my underwear since I peed my pants the first time I drove her home.

This is a beautiful car ... a fun car ... I was sitting at a Sonic Drive In last Saturday ... a lady in her Surburban pulls up behaind me and stops! ... I couldn't back out if I had wanted to ... she comes up and knocks on my window ... I roll it down and she says "Would you mind if I just walked around and look at your car ... I've always wanted something like it ... where did you get it?"

It is just a car and therefore it is not perfect ... but it is beautiful and fun!

Thanks "macpar4" I have wanted to ask the same :confused: since I too read this every day (ok 50 times a day:D ). I am glad to read the responces form current owners and it maintains my faith that this is a very special car.
I saw my first one on the road the other day coming out of the Foxwoods Casino.....man dit it look cool....:cool: This car in MHO represents the future and there is far too much $$$$$$$$$$$$ riding on thisa to be anything but a resounding success..:thumbs:

As much as I am disappointed with some of the QC issues, yes I would do it again. If you have any issues, the Saturn service department will take care of you.:thumbs:

I like my SKY enough to give it to my daughter, and well enough to buy a Red Line just for me.

Best move I ever made. I have never, repeat never, had a car that I have enjoyed as much as this one. There is not another car on the planet that I would rather drive, and that's the truth.

Some have more problems than others and apparently all Skys are being fixed at the factory and dealerships as problems come to light. Yes... I have the clunk, so did my 91 Silverado (It's a GM rearend thing)...

From the factory my protruding bolt has been covered, my fenders and trunk are all in alignment, my rear diff hasn't started leaking, my fender wells are secure and not rubbing on the tires, my glue is so far holding all the parts on, and my roof hasn't separated yet (but I'm watching it like a hawk!)... As you can see as more are built improvements and upgrades are implemented. We probably won't recognize this car in three years but I'm extremely happy I bought this one.

I haven't had a single problem with mine (knocking on wood now!). Do not hesitate - this car is the definition of fun. Handles like a dream.

No Question

So far, no problems with our Sky. To echo the other posts - this car is just plain fun.

If I had to come up with one word to describe the Sky it would be 'rejuvinating'. Yes, it's a car, it gets dirty, it will have problems. I am grateful that the good folks at my Saturn dealership have an excellent service staff. I've kept them on for nearly 10 years now through 3 Staturns.

The car is worth the wait.

Yes, yes, yes! I have had my car since April 10 and have had a lot of fun driving it. I have to admit, part of the fun is getting all the comments from everyone who sees the car. I wouldn't mind having a bit more horsepower but I can live with what I have now.

I wouldn't change my mind at all! Any vehicle made has issues, Saturn seems to be taking great care of the customer too. I drove 20 miles to sit in the only demo car in a seventy mile radius last Sunday. What's that say other than I may be deranged?
