Model Highlights

The Saturn Sky, which debuted for the 2007 model year, shares the same Kappa platform as the Pontiac Solstice. Standard features include 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, remote keyless entry and the usual power accoutrements. The Sky separates itself from its Pontiac sibling, the Solstice, by providing an added layer to the cloth convertible top for more noise attenuation and a revised suspension.

The Sky offers several options and packages to choose from, including leather seat inserts, a Monsoon sound system upgrade, which is MP3 capable, and a premium trim package that includes leather seat inserts, a leather wrapped shift knob, metallic finish sill plates, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and stainless steel pedal covers.

In base form, GM's 2.4L Ecotec inline 4-cylinder engine uses variable valve timing to produce 173 hp. The Red Line trim includes a 260-hp 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled 4-cylinder engine. Both engines can be mated to either a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The Sky Red Line, aimed at performance enthusiasts, also includes a limited-slip 3.73 rear axle, performance-oriented suspension tuning, more aggressive performance tires, polished wheels, a high-flow stainless exhaust system with dual outlets and unique Red Line-specific exterior and interior trim pieces. New this year is a Ruby Red Limited Edition model, as well as a Hydro Blue Special Edition, each of which can be outfitted on either the base or Red Line Sky. They add leather upholstery and unique badging, as well as Bluetooth and steering wheel audio controls.

Driver and passenger airbags are standard, as are traction control and electronic stability control. All in all, the Sky offers great looks, plenty of comfort and convenience features, and just enough space for a weekend getaway for two. Top it all off with an unbeatable fun-per-dollar quotient, and Saturn's sleek convertible is a great choice.


Model News

The Saturn Sky sees mostly cosmetic changes for 2009, though Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now standard on the Sky Red Line and optional on the base model.

Midnight Blue and Bluestone exterior colors have been replaced by Evening Blue, Hydro Blue and Ruby Red. Both Hydro Blue and Ruby Red also lend their names to special- and limited-edition Sky models, respectively. Polished 18-inch alloy wheels are standard on Ruby Red SE models.


Value Writeup

Saturn's Sky offers bold styling that GM hopes can lure buyers away from the popular Mazda Miata and Honda S2000. The Red Line offers as much horsepower as any other 2-seat convertible under $35,000, and produces enough punch to run with many roadsters that cost $10,000 more.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR, 2007-2010 Pontiac G5, 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, and 2007-2010 Saturn Sky vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position.

Consequence
If the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "off" position, the vehicle could roll away: (a) for an automatic transmission, if the transmission is not in the "Park" position; or (b) for a manual transmission, if the parking brake is not engaged and the transmission is not in the "Reverse" position. This potential for rollaway increases the risk for a crash and occupant or pedestrian injuries.

General Motors will notify owners, and for vehicles that were built with the defective ignition cylinder and have not previously had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will replace the ignition cylinder and cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. For vehicles that were built with the redesigned ignition cylinder or had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Chevrolet owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac owners at 1-800-762-2737, and Saturn owners at 1-800-553-6000. General Motors' number for this recall is 14113 for the ignition lock cylinder and key replacement, and 14133 for only key replacements. Note: Until a vehicle has been remedied, owners and operators are advised that when exiting, to be sure that the vehicle is in "Park," o...

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
