I waited for the 09 model and I am glad I did. Saturn added bluetooth to this model year, which was sorely needed. I have had this car for a couple months so far, and have had no problems with it. If GM continues making cars like this, then they will survive and I will continue to purchase from them, as I have been buying Toyota and Lexus for my last several cars.

Honest Review of 2009 Saturn Sky Redline

I bought a 2009 Saturn Sky Redline with only 38,000 miles back in 2014. I had it for about a year. -------- Pros -------- + Excellent exterior styling - aggressive, stealthy + Modern day 3rd gen Corvette stingray wannabe. + Lots of smiles and accolades from admirers. + Roomy interior even for tall drivers. I'm 6'3" + Freezing cold air conditioning for those hot days. + Monsoon stereo with crisp highs, deep lows. + Turbo Redline is fast and fun with zero lag. + Lower profile side windows keeps direct sun out. * Bluetooth on 2009 phone and more is nice. + Rag top is good quality with a nice headliner. + Surprisingly quiet inside for a convertible. + Throaty, hotrod exhaust note for a four cylinder. + Decent gas mileage for a sports car. -------- Cons -------- - Hard shifting automatic on some is known issue. -.Shuts off no warning. Ignition key cylinder recall. - Rides rough. You will feel all road imperfections. - Power steering too loose for high speed curves. - Wish it had speed proportional power steering. - Putting top down is not a simple task. - With a passenger & top up there is little storage. - With passenger and top-down no storage. - Only real usable storage is the passenger seat. - Small and impractical for most tasks. - Finding parts will be a challenge as car ages. --------------- Summary ---------------- The Sky is a fast, fun, exotic looking car for a single person, daily commuter, and occasional weekend drive. It's a sports car after all. Accept it for what it is and don't expect it to be what it's not.

I bought my 09 Red Line new about 2.5 years ago. It was, and continues to be a great car! My only complaint is minor - the cupholder should have been better constructed and I expect it will break at some point. Other than that, it's a fantastic automobile.

I bought my 2009 Saturn Sky used in 2012 and have had it for 5 years now. It has 87k miles with no mechanical or electrical failures. I love the style, handling, it is affordable, and requires minimal maintenance. The car is fun to drive and I use it to commute daily as well as on weekends.

The Red Line is a great sports car. Power, quick, comfortable. I wish it had a better sound at the exhaust. Cops will stop you to find out what kind of car it is. Really. Sometimes they will bring pad in hand, since it is a blast to drive. Fast. If what you want is the fun of a sports car, with a turbo thrust and 5 speeds, that goes >100mph, a sky is a great choice. You'll feel like a guy driving this vs a Miata or the Mitsu whatever. Top up/down is pure hassle.
