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


I bought this car as a last resort after I totaled my previous vehicle. First I had problems with the wheels and had to replace all four wheels and tires. Then I started to have a problem starting the car in the cold. The only thing I have found to work is heating the key with a lighter, sticking it in the ignition and moving it up and down a few times to warm up the pins which are frozen by the grease apparently and then start. This is pathetic and white trash. I have heard MANY people have had this problem. Also heard one guy took it in to Saturn, spent thousands of dollars and they couldn't even figure it out. Saturn needs to obviously due a recall, this is pathetic.

Worst Features

Fix whatever is causing the cold start problems
