2009 Saturn Sky Recalls & Reliability

Recalls

There has been 1 safety recall issued from NHTSA.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMRecall Date: 04/10/2014
  • Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR, 2007-2010 Pontiac G5, 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, and 2007-2010 Saturn Sky vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,191,014
  • Consequence: If the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "off" position, the vehicle could roll away: (a) for an automatic transmission, if the transmission is not in the "Park" position; or (b) for a manual transmission, if the parking brake is not engaged and the transmission is not in the "Reverse" position.

General Motors' number for this recall is 14113 for the ignition lock cylinder and key replacement, and 14133 for only key replacements.

Warranty

The 2009 SKY comes with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. What's more, owners get five years or 100,000 miles of courtesy transportation and 24/7 roadside assistance. Though impressive, such lengthy coverage may be needed -- as some critics claim the SKY isn't very reliable.

  • A "concern for the daily use of a Saturn Sky would be the model's poor reputation for reliability.  ... [And] should make potential roadster buyers pause to consider the nearly bulletproof and well-established Mazda Miata." -- Edmunds
