2005 Saturn ION 3 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Bought my Ion 3 in 6/2005 & have had the ignition replaced 3 times already, as well as the driver's window motor & wiper motor. I just brought it to Strauss for an alignment & they told me that both control arms, all bearings, and rods are shot...in a FOUR year old car!! No excuse for this. I previously owned a 93 Grand Am & the control arm only cracked due to a collision in 04. Control arms should NEVER wear out in less than 5 years! Please note also that my sister owns an '04 Saturn Ion & has had the same ignition issues. Just last week the key became stuck in the column-this, 2 months after they replaced her ignition! Def. avoiding GM if possible. No wonder they're going under!

Favorite Features

Decent car, gets me from point A to point B...but at what cost? :(

Suggested Improvements

GM should really have owned up to the hundreds of thousands of complaints about Saturn vehicles instead of just shutting down the line. That's worse than what Toyota's done. At least Toyota has the balls to issue a worldwide recall & atone for their mistakes!! Def. going w/ a foreign car next time.
