2008 Saturn Sky Red Line Carbon Flash SE 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I have been very pleased with my '08 Red Line Carbon Flash SE Automatic. 260 hp & ft/lbs torque in a car less than 2900 pounds that is sexy in black on black leather and lots of chrome equals a smile on my face and everyone that looks at it. I have no commute so the miles stay very low (only 6800 in 18 months)and I use it primarily to bop around our small Florida community. Decent gas mileage too, probably 20 mpg or so overall. For what I use it for it's perfect, just don't get one if you expect to fit more than one other person and a small overnight bag!


Favorite Features

Acceleration, performance, looks (esp. with top down), chrome wheels & accents against black paint. Stereo is pretty sweet also.


Suggested Improvements

Paddle shifters or manumatic please!! Living in flat, gridlike Florida makes a stick undesirable to me, but I constantly wish for the ability to more easily downshift for myself. Tire pressure light stays on no matter what I do. Passenger window chafes against roof, fraying it a bit.

2008 Saturn Sky Red Line Carbon Flash SE 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This car looks and drives like a mini Vette. If you are looking for a mean toy machine, this is it. Its chassis is stiff and the visibility is not the best but after all it is a pure sports car and all the rest is excellent; looks, power, fun, speed. Mind you I paid $55k for this car in Europe but it was worth it. If I were in the US I would buy two so you should at least buy one.


Favorite Features

Design and engine are remarkable.


Suggested Improvements

Although the inside quality is very good I would prefer a more German dash board feel.

Review

I owned my Carbon Flash SE for about 2 weeks now. It drives remarkable well. Fast when you want fast. Sound system is spectacular. Everyone stops me wherever I go. I even took it to another Saturn dealership and everyone at the dealership stopped what they were doing to come and take a look. The only downfall to the car is there is no trunk space, I take s suite case now and then. The other downfall is if you have long legs you can't adjust the seats much. I do wish the steering column was extendable and not just a verticle adjustment. Otherwise, it is fantastic!


Favorite Features

Sound system, powerful engine, great looks.


Suggested Improvements

Create a slightly longer car to allow for seat adjustments and a little bit of trunck space.
