After we bought it!

"Loved driving this car the past few years. It is sporty looking, has unique doors, great color, super quick and a nice interior. However, living in Montana this car is impractical. It doesn't do well on ice and snow because it is so light. During the summer months it was a great fast little car with fantastic gas mileage. Only issue would be that this particular model has a very expensive transmission so replacing it isn't worth it."

"I fell in love with this car when I seen it. After a few months, came the problems. After a few years, came the recalls. Besides ALL of the REACALLS, it was just a complete nightmare owning the Saturn Ion. Even with regular maintenance, there was always something going on under the hood. I spent at least, 6 grand in repairs, just to keep this car in running condition. So ridiculous! Worst car I've ever had!! Wish I would've done my research on this car before buying it from a lot."

"Bought this car thinking it'd be low mileage and a good commuter car. So wrong. Not sure how others were getting 30 mpg, since I'm averaging about 22. I've had an engine job done, ignition module, fuel injectors, and I haven't even had it 2 years. Check engine light comes and goes every few days as it pleases, and GM dealerships have told me it's normal. I think I'd prefer a car that does not misfire upon idling..."
