2005 Saturn ION 2 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I had to get rid of my ION at 48,000 miles due to it needing more in repairs than the car was worth. At 48,000 miles, my transmission died due to a factory defect. SInce my car was out of warranty, Saturn wouldn't fix it for free. In addition to my blown transmission, I also needed a whole new valve body. The cost of the transmission and valve body was more than the car was worth. I'm not a car expert but I know enough to know that cars shouldn't be done for before they reach 50,000 miles. My ION had other problems too, such as a faulty ignition starter that wouldn't always let me remove the key. Saturn wouldn't fix the problem or admit there was one. Terrible car, terrible company. Beware!

Favorite Features

The car was fun to drive, handled well, and was attractive.

Suggested Improvements

I suggest Saturn makes a car that can withstand 50,000+ miles of regular driving conditions before it needs thousands of dollars in repairs.
