2004 Saturn ION Red Line 4dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
I drive a ton of miles on the highway.
This car is great to zoom in and out of
traffic, lot's of power at the high end
of the RPM's. Handles great too. This
car is engineered with lots of go fast
parts that work together very well.
And you couldn't build a regular ION
(new) up to be this fast for the
price. I've surpised many other
drivers in cars we always thought were
fast...by pulling away from them on the
highway. Not much torque steer. With
205 HP I expected it be squirly, but
it's well behaved. If you are going to
spend 20k on a 4 cylinder car, why
wouldn't you get one that's this much
2nd-3rd, up to redline. Taking onramps
at higher than posted speeds. The fact
that nobody expects a Saturn to be fast.
A little more low end power. Get the
big rear spoiler when you buy yours.
Exhaust could make some more noise.
