Purchased an '04 Ion about a year and a half ago and have had nothing but problems with it. I enjoy the handling, power, gas mileage, and general look, but ours will not consistently start in damp weather or weather under 40 degrees. The security system locks the car and it wont work.
I would not buy another nor recommend it to anyone.
I love my Saturn Ion

I wanted a simple used basic car, and that's what I got in my Saturn Ion. It had 15,000 miles on it, and the only thing I had to replace so far after driving it an additional 10,000 miles is the windshield a pebble broke. Great car.

I have never owned a Saturn, much less one with the features like this. I got almost 35 miles a gallon and everything works great! One of this biggest new changes was the Onstar system. This functionality was put into play when two weeks after receiving the car, I was in a no-fault accident. Pushing the Onstar emergency button and telling the person I was in an accident had emergency vehicles to me within two minutes!
I will never get rid of Onstar. It has already paid for itself thousands of times faster because my phone was dead and I would have had no other way to contact emergency people because the other car drove away.
