2009 Saturn Sky Red Line 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I love driving this car. I got a comment today from another driver that pulled up next to me. He said, what is that thing. He couldn't take his eyes off of it. Mine is a bright yellow which is a real eye catcher. A design flaw is that not enough tolerance was designed between the engine hood and the open driver's door. If you shut the hood with the door open, that will hit and chip off the paint.


Favorite Features

The acceleration of the red line and the stylish appearance of the exterior.


Suggested Improvements

My wife would reall have liked a power top. It is a pain to raise and lower if you are used to a power convertible. Need more than one cup holder. Trunk is way too small but we knew that when we purchased.

2009 Saturn Sky Red Line 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Yes - It's an Orphan now!.. Too bad GM wasn't able to keep Saturn viable - So now The Sky is a collector car, and an exciting one at that. Sure, the interior and dash are plasticy, and there's hardly a place for sunglasses or 2 cups of Starbucks, but my God what a looker!..I knew the the top action was a little Rube Goldberg and the trunk is almost non-existent. But, after I drove one and checked it out, Wow! Plenty of grunt, nice quick steering, firm, sporting suspension- exhaust note a little timid, but sounds nice when you can hear it. And that styling..This is balls out the greatest. I owned a bunch of notable and not so notable cars. Raced some of them at Watkins Glen and Lime Rock.


Favorite Features

STYLE - PERFORMANCE - PRICE


Suggested Improvements

Too Late now!.. but better interior materials and planning.

2009 Saturn Sky Red Line 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Mine is the turbo with automatic. The car is really fun to drive. Unfortunately the turbo failed (actually the waste gate servo)with 210 miles. Gets 28 MPG at 65 and 31 at 70 MPH as long as you don't put you foot into it. Use mostly for commute 70 miles round trip on interstate hwy. Primary complaint is the poor ergonomically interior design and lack of a few features. Window and mirror controls are under your elbow, should have been put on door along with electric door lock. Power seat only up up/down though it makes the seat go forward as you raise it up. Have manually adjust it back. Need vanity mirror on pass side. Ride is little rough but seats are very comfortable.


Favorite Features

Great exterior styling. Ride is rough but sticks to road like it was glued in place. Good quality leather seats.


Suggested Improvements

Need to rethink interior controls and their locations. Almost everything is in awkward locations or not visible to driver. Add mirror for passenger. An integrated roll bar might we nice just for peace of mind if nothing else. Need more than 1 cup holder and electrical outlet.

2009 Saturn Sky Red Line 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Just got the car this month and so far no problems and it is a blast to drive. I got the red line edition because the power was lacking in the base model. The car will throw you back in your seat when to tromp on the gas. I got the automatic transmission and it shifts smooth. I opted for the midnight blue with tan top & interior, which gave the interior a nice two-tone color. The car is stylin' with no complaints there. I would say with the top up visibility is diminished quite a bit but the cabin is quite guiet. The only complaint I can think of is the leg room for taller passengers in the passenger seat. Also another complaint is the lack of storage in the cabin. Great car for the money.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room, top can be a little fussy when raising, better cup holders, lack of storage in cabin, more pronounced speedometer.

2009 Saturn Sky Red Line Ruby Red SE 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

We reviewed several kinds of two seat roadsters before deciding on the slick looking, turbo charged Saturn Redline Sky. SHARP! Coupled with a new IPod and some appropriate ZOOM ZOOM music, we have thoroughly enjoyed evening cruises. With GREAT gas milage too! While not our main source of enjoyment - you can't help but notice (and HEAR) the repeated ongoing attentions of others - some mistake it for a Corvette due to front end styling - but for 20,000 grand less? Why not? It's a great, fun car.


Favorite Features

Acceleration, styling, and ease of handling are outstanding. The Stabili- trac steering GROOVES cornering. Managing the convertible top isn't hard. An entire cart of groceries can be stored with some creative packing even with the top down. We'll store it in the winter and suffer till spring!


Suggested Improvements

Better placement of arm rest switches, a lock on the only storage compartment other than the glove box, and a slightly smaller rear view mirrow would help (line of sight is restricted). Watch out for parking curbs! The front bumper is LOW and easily scratched!
