2006 Saturn ION 2 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Like other reviews here, lots of mechanical problems. At 80,000 I am on my second engine, third ignition switch third set of shifting cables. replaced wheel bearings, stabilizers, and several other front end parts. Would love to trade it, but owe more than it's worth. Looks decent, drives decent when its not in the shop. Unfortunately just a cheaply built car. I know people with older saturns that had decent experiences, but my feeling is this is a good car to stay away from

Best Features

decent mileage, trunk space etc not bad

Worst Features

way to many failures of critical components, if you can't build a better car than this it's time to close the doors
