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.
2006 Saturn IonDeb - Tampa, FL06/17/2010
I just purchased this exact vehicle (Blue 2006 Saturn Ion 2) two weeks ago and I absolutely love it. This car handles superbly especially when turning corners and u turns. It is a very comfortable car although it took me a couple of weeks to get used to the firmess of the drivers seat. For a 4 cylinder vehicle it has great pick up even when the A/C is running. This vehicle is beautiful inside and out. It looks exactly like the photos. The car that I purchased looks and runs like a brand new car and is in perfect condition inside and out. And is in perfect mechanical condition. It also has a great sounding sound system.
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.
