2004 Saturn ION 2 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5A)


I bought this Ion new on 10/28/03 and have enjoyed the last 143k miles.
Sure, in the beginning there were some bugs to work out, wiring harness, computer glich, shifter block and a few other small bulletin items that the Saturn dealer dilligently fixed.
Other than general maintenance, the only thing replaced was the ignition switch.
Each set of tires has gotten 55k, and the oem battery got over 5 years of use.
The car has been extremely reliable.
Since 25k, the car runs on Mobile 1 and a K&N filter, this has made a difference on mpg.
Sometimes I think of selling to get a new car, can't justify it, do a comp with a Cruze, size, power,features, vertually same car!
Not sexy, but delivers!

Best Features

Easy to maintain, reliable and just keeps ticking. Easy to clean to make it look youthful again. Good power and mpg for its era.

Worst Features

It's too late now.
