2008 SKY Red Line
2008 VUE 3.6L
Happy Exchanged my Astra for a Sky!

I bought an Astra exactly a month ago (because it was the "smart" money decision) and last night I completed the exchange paperwork and took delivery of my brand new 2008 Sky Redline in Sunburst Yellow! I don't want to bash the Astra, but it was definitely not a car I could have driven for significant lengths of time. Last night, I didn't want to get OUT of the SKY!

2008 SKY
Default Re: Exchanged my Astra for a Sky!

Congrats!!!!!! Man, that is awesome! Saturn's exchange program is the best. I leased a silver Aura, took it home and my wife and I thought the color was just too dull. The dealer happily switched it the next day for a midnight blue model and made the process painless. Plus, I LOVE my Sky and I'm sure you will have no regrets with your switch!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I never had to use the exchange program before and besides picking WHAT car to exchange the Astra for, it was pretty painless. And so far it was the BEST choice! I uploaded some pics tonight!

The ASTRA is what it is ... a small car that does not deliver performance to match it looks or the fuel economy to match it's small under powered engine. The SKY on the other hand is a perfect car for the money.

I love my SKY, but if you have to carry much of anything with you, it does have its limits.

I personally like the Red the best, but the Sky looks great in any color.

My two favorite convertibles are the Saturn Sky and Porsche Carrera GT. I think your one pic has showed me why...Look at how much they resemble each other.

Nice trade-up, but you know you can't go any further now, 'cause as everyone knows..."the Sky's the limit".

Default Re: Exchanged my Astra for a Sky!

Both are really great cars for what they are. I have a 2008 Sky red line and love it, but it has its limitations for hauling anything. I bought my wife a 5 door Astra with the giant sunroof and we both really like that car. Different capabilites with each car and glad to own them both!

Own them both. If the Astra only had the LNF engine package, I could reduce the stable by one!
