"This is the second Saturn I have driven. It handles great, has a sleek look, and is everything I wanted in it. I have not had to do anything to the car other than its regular oil and tire changes. I know some people talk badly about Saturn but they have run great for me so far."

"This was my car for junior and senior year of high school. AWESOME CAR. everyone loved it and thought it was more expensive then it looked. sounds great when you drive, its alright in the snow. but good for sliding around in a parking lot cause of its long stance. ;) the clutch is as smooth as a honda civics'. great car overall."

2004 Saturn Ion 2

"I bought this car in 2007. It had 46,000 miles on it. This has been a very reliable and trustworthy car for me. I drive it regularly on the highway as well as in the city. I have never had an emergency while driving this car. It has no bells and whistles, not even power windows. In the 7 yrs I have owned this car, I have replaced brakes and tires. This past year I had to replace a fan motor. This car does not use one drop of oil. I change oil and maintain this car religiously every 3,000 miles."

2004 Saturn Ion 2

"I bought this car in 2007. It had 46,000 mi at that time. This car has been an excellent car for me to drive on the road as well as in the city. It has no 'bells and whistles', not even power windows, but it has been very reliable as far as road-worthiness is concerned. In the 7 yrs I have owned this car, I have replaced tires and brakes and this past year, I had to have a new fan motor replaced. Other than that, I have religiously changed oil every 3,000 miles and have kept it well maintained at a private auto maintenance shop."
