Description

Enjoy it like your car,,, Saturn has built one fine little roadster. It doesnt just look awesome, but handles like a true sports car. The Sky handles turns with amazing performance and powers out of them with ease. Its big wide tires stick to pavement like glue. Once in the cockpit, you cant help but smile. One drawback, there is no luggage space for a really good road trip. Love the way the car looks, turns alot of heads and gets alot of compliments. Handsome exterior design Higher-trim Red Line SKY provides class-competitive handling and acceleration Affordable value compared to competitors within its class Very enjoyable, basic sports car. No computer controlled anything. It weighs barely 3000 pounds and with 260 HP and 260 LB. FT. of torque it will get sideways anytime you want. The top stows into the trunk area reducing even more the meager storage space but boy does it look cool with the top stowed. No visible convertible top makes for one stylish ride. The 2.0 liter engine sounds rorty on start-up but is never hard on the ears. Stereo easily heard at freeway speeds even with the top down. Consistently gets 27 MPG at 75 MPH in 5th gear but would be even better with a 6-speed gearbox. Too bad they're out of production. I predict they will be a collectible in 10 years. I think that this car is what it was designed for "Fun". Its a car that you can jump in and go without worry of it breaking down. I get about 31 mpg and feel the road as im driving. I like that there are after market parts still available for this car. It wouldnt take much to get this 4 cyclinder over 300HP. I think GM hit a home run when they came out with the Sky redline. This car is a great car for the summer. The 2008 Saturn Sky is a two-seat roadster available in base and Red Line models. Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, a limited-slip differential, a manual cloth top with a glass rear window, automatic headlights, full power accessories, air-conditioning and a six-speaker audio system with CD/MP3 player, auxiliary jack and satellite radio. There is an upgraded seven-speaker system with in-dash CD changer available. The optional Premium Trim Package adds leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, and metallic interior trim. The Carbon Flash Special Edition also adds those items plus 18-inch chrome alloy wheels and Carbon Flash paint. The Saturn Sky Red Line is equipped similarly to a regular model with the Premium Trim Package, but has special interior and exterior details, a sport-tuned suspension and performance tires. The Red Line Carbon Flash adds the chrome wheels and unique paint. Safety Antilock disc brakes and stability control are standard equipment, as is OnStar, GM's telematics system. Side airbags aren't offered on any Sky roadster. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash testing, the Sky scored four stars (out of five) for both frontal- and side-impact tests. Driving When thrown into a corner, the Sky tends toward safe understeer unless provoked with the throttle. Most drivers will find the car's substantial lateral grip and quick steering enjoyable enough to make the Sky a fun and engaging twisty road companion. Ride quality is quite acceptable for normal day-to-day use, and the Sky is a better highway cruiser than the Miata. The base 2.4-liter engine, which is pretty much the same as what's found in a multitude of GM economy-oriented products, is merely adequate in terms of acceleration and refinement. Thankfully, the Sky Red Line is a more serious performance car thanks to its powerful engine and stiffer suspension tuning. It's impressively quick in a straight line, but numb steering and an imprecise throttle prevent the driver from obtaining a true connection to the car when driving hard on curvy roads. Until the 2007 model year, Saturn didn’t necessarily quite belong in the same sentence with style, performance or handling. Ever since the brand’s introduction in 1990, the easy-to-purchase Saturns have been known mainly as sensible cars for small families and modest budgets. That’s all changed dramatically with the debut of the SKY roadster and, especially, its recently-introduced turbocharged Red Line offshoot. Only in small details does it differ mechanically from the Pontiac Solstice, and the rear-wheel-drive two-passenger 2008 Saturn SKY – particularly in Red Line guise – sends Saturn and its potential customers into a new and unexpected automotive realm. Driving the Used 2008 Saturn SKY Though it’s no BMW in terms of refinement, the 2008 Saturn SKY Red Line experience is reminiscent of BMW’s Z4. Relatively high steering effort translates to a heavy overall feel. This two-seater maneuvers effectively and hugs the road tenaciously. Although the engine delivers an impressive flow of power, if you’re not in the optimum gear with a manual-shift model, don’t expect startling response, and the exhaust sounds aren’t especially inspiring. Sitting atop the console, the short gearshift lever is actually in good position for gear changes, though the clutch engages at a surprisingly low point on the pedal. Favorite Features Sensuously-Shaped Body Can this really be a Saturn? Anyone who’s turned away from prior Saturn products due to humdrum appearances is sure to be shocked by the first close look at the SKY – which looks even more voluptuous in Red Line form. Turbocharged Direct-Injection Engine Saturn deserves credit not only for giving this small-displacement engine abundant power, but for doing so without a sharp drop in gas mileage. In fact, the Red Line’s turbo earns EPA fuel-economy estimates that beat the base-model’s larger, but less-potent engine. Used 2008 Saturn SKY Interior Squeezing into the SKY’s cockpit may demand some twitchy contortions, but its seats are snugly satisfying – eager to keep you tautly in position through enthusiastic driving maneuvers. The Red Line-specific speedometer and tachometer are so deep-set that they’re difficult for some eyes to read easily in the daytime, and things are not helped by the tiny gas gauge. No other conventional instruments are mounted on the dashboard, which relies instead on digital readouts for additional information, and the excessive chrome brightwork can result in distracting glare on sunny days. With the top down, space in the rear-hinged trunk shrinks from meager to nearly non-existent. Used 2008 Saturn SKY Exterior Among the shapeliest roadsters on the market, the SKY attracts attention even from the uninitiated – especially when painted brilliant Sunburst Yellow. Compared to the base model, the front end of the SKY Red Line flaunts several unique styling touches, including functional brake-cooling vents. A larger mesh pattern in the lower grille is intended to improve airflow toward the engine. Red Line headlamps differ, too, with black bezels instead of chrome. Flangeless, five-spoke polished aluminum-alloy wheels hold 18-inch tires. Putting the fabric top up or down isn’t the easiest task. Used 2008 Saturn SKY Standard Features Standard Red Line equipment includes a five-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential, GM’s StabiliTrak stability-control system and a performance-tuned suspension. Inside are a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and a digital turbo boost gauge. Dual polished aluminum exhaust outlets release the turbocharged engine’s gases. Red Line models feature stainless steel pedal covers and metallic sill plates. The SKY roadster also has anti-lock braking (ABS), foglamps, OnStar, keyless remote entry and power windows/doors/mirrors. Due to limited trunk space, no spare tire is included. Used 2008 Saturn SKY Options For around $900, a five-speed automatic transmission can replace the standard five-speed manual gearbox, though for performance enthusiasts the stick-shift may deliver stronger results from the turbo engine. Additional options include a six-CD changer with Monsoon sound, leather-surfaced seat trim, chrome wheels and a rear spoiler. Used 2008 Saturn SKY Engine In contrast to the base-model SKY’s 173-horsepower engine, the SKY Red Line has a 260-horsepower, 2.0-liter Ecotec four-cylinder, driving a five-speed manual or optional five-speed automatic transmission. Direct-injection technology sends fuel directly into the combustion chambers of the turbocharged engine to produce greater power with less fuel consumption 2.0-liter in-line 4 Turbocharged 260 horsepower @ 5300 rpm 260 lb.-ft. of torque @ 2500-5200 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/28 (manual), 19/26 (automatic) How Much Does the Used 2008 Saturn SKY Cost? In Red Line form the 2008 Saturn SKY roadster has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just under $30,000. That’s more than $4,000 more than the price of a base-model SKY. When the cars were first available, eager shoppers were paying more than $1,000 (on average) above MSRP to be among the first to drive one home. Be sure to click on Fair Purchase Prices to check what the 2008 Saturn SKY Red Line is currently selling for in your area. With the SKY Red Line, Saturn competes mainly against the Pontiac Solstice GXP, which uses the same powertrain but starts some $1,500 lower. Outside the GM stable, the SKY’s only real rival is the long-lived but still popular, if less-powerful, Mazda MX-5 Miata. Most other competitors, such as the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Nissan 350Z and Honda S2000, are priced significantly higher. In terms of resale value, we predict that the SKY Red Line will perform exceptionally well over time.

Great car to have fun in the sun! Super cool factor and very comfortable! We had a blast with the top down. Very limited luggage/storage space but we planned ahead. Amirreza was a great communicator and incredibly flexible! Really appreciated the option to be met/ dropped curbside at LAX! Saved us so much time and hassle! We will definitely rent from Amirreza again! Can’t wait!
