Hi Guys,
I am actively car shopping for a used Saturn Sky (not a Redline). I do have a few questions if anyone can be kind enough to answer them.

1-Do all Skys have traction control?
2-I have also noticed that not all Skys have the steering wheel controls for the radio. Is this due to lack of a premium option?
3-Do all Skys have leather interior?
4-Is there anything else I need to know?

1) As far as I know.
2) Probably.
3) No. That is an option when you buy it, although my dealership mentioned that every single one he had sold had the premium leather seats. And only one sky in the lot (out of six or seven) didn't have them when i bought mine.
4) At 5'11", I have to bend down to look up through my windsheild at the stop lights at some intersections. Although with the top down, it's a ton easier to just look up and over that bar. There's that and this car is amazingly fun to drive.

Here are the things that surprised/delighted/annoyed me after I got mine:

1. It's a more comfortable daily driver than I ever thought it would be.
2. I LOVE the RWD after so many years of FWD cars.
3. Lowering/raising the top is a little more cumbersome than I'd hoped.
4. Storage is fine despite everyone's *****ing. It's not a minivan!
5. It's commendably quiet top up or down except at highway speeds.
6. No heated seat option is absurd!
7. My kids love it!!

Go to www.edmunds.com and build the base model. It will give you all of the options.

The only gripe I have about the Sky is that the seat belts are a pain to locate cuz they are so far behind the seats; and that wouldn't be an issue if I didn't have a bad back from playing hockey.

A fine idea. That won't answer your traction control question though, but I swear to you that it's not on any 07 NA Sky. If you want a used 2.4L and need TC, make sure you get an 08.

A set of these might be of interest to you.

My 97 Sc2 came with seatbelt extenders, but with how they're integrated with the seatbelt pivot mount made me think they were factory and I never investigated further..
