1998 SL
Default Buying a 2007 Sky questions?

I'm about to trade in my old 98 SL for a 2007 Saturn sky red line with a turbo. Are there any known issues I should be aware of before I buy this car. I know that it was bought in 2006 and somewhere I heard that these early model Skys had issues with the drive shaft or differential? Can anyone tell me if this is a solid car or not. I can't wait to buy my next Saturn.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

LSD's can chatter in turns and whine when accelerating or decelerating. It's a nothing new for a rear LSD to do that. Problem it your sitting so close to the diff and having a soft top you hear it, and it's annoying. If you get the noise change to syn diff lube and go to the GM store to get the additive. Get two bottles of additive put both in then refill diff. I did that 30,000 miles ago and all is well.

I did hear about a few such problems but I couldn't guide You exactly as I don't own one. You should read reviews about it, take a test drive and then decide on it.
