Happy First to test drive the Saturn Sky at Saturn of Wyoming Valley!

TOTALLY STOKED!!!!!!!!!!! A thrill of a lifetime that I, at the age of a mere 21, was the FIRST, to testdrive a Saturn Sky(with the top down ofcourse) at Saturn Of Wyoming Valley. I have some low quality pictures I took with my camera phone. Acceleration is amazing, shifter is effortless, LOOKS FROM EVERYONE, including the guy in his Infinitt G35 Coupe, BMW Z4, and Everyone else. GUYS CHECK THIS CAR OUT ASAP!!!



PICS are attached...I recommend you check em out LEAVE ME any questions to answer about to experience and drive. Gladly will answer in detail.

Ah, I see they're building the SKY the way the Russians used to build MiGs...out of focus. At least that's how all the aircraft spy shots were.

Questions:

1. I assume it was a maunal ... did you hear a "clunk" going from first to second?

2. Wind noise with top up?

3. Placement of controls ok? Window switch? Can you read the guages ok?

4. Seat adjustment ok?

5.Did you look in the "trunk"? How much usable room?

...
Deposit in ... #1 on dealer's list ...Silver Pearl, Black top, Black leather, monsoon, LSD, M$RP in writting ... ordered March 8!!! order accepted March 15 ... order status 38 "Produced" on April 4

1, honestly no, its smooth like chocolate. Very short throws, easy shifts, and a pleasure to drive.
2, the top was dow nthe entire time, and honestly was not loud or to windy for me as it was.
3, Controls were layed out nicely, Window switches in my opinion are placed back a lil far, and I could not find an auto unlock button. To get out of the car if its locked you have to literially pull up the lock tab on top of the door sill. Gauges are nice, a little simple, but whos looking down anyway, I was looking forward, up, across, with huge smile on my face.
4, Seating was nice, very tight coupe/convertible feel. i'm only 5'7 and dont' have that big of a build but felt like it was a lil tight.
5, no i missed the trunk, I was act late for work cause I took it for a drive hehe so I did not have a chance.

Wow, I wan't to know what time today you did this. I was at Saturn of Wyoming Valley today getting a keyless remote programmed. I saw that sky sitting there and soooooo wanted to test drive it! I had class at 9:30 though and I couldn't stay after they did the work. Hell, you're probably a student at LCCC just like me. Or at least I should hope you are at just 21 years old.

BTW yes congrats on the test drive. I may see if I can do the same on Thursday.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thats awesome man, hopefully they will be coming into Canada soon so we can all drive one. So the acceleration was good? I was kinda worried going to a 4 cylinder and some of the reviews i've read in magazines say its not that great. What do you currently drive that you were comparing it too?

REF: Door Locks... I believe once you turn the engine off the door automatically unlocks. I couldn't find the lock/unlock button either when I took a test drive.
