About Saturn Ion

As fuel costs show no sign of dropping, the small car is once again in vogue, making Saturn the darling of GM. With its Ion coupe and sedan, Saturn offers buyers a genuine alternative to the popular Japanese and Korean makes, and a customer service model that focuses on total satisfaction from purchase to trade-in. Though the Ion is not yet the equal of such vehicles as the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, it is a worthy compact offering excellent fuel economy, an agreeable price tag and a number of innovative options, including the high-performance Red Line package.

Pros: "Good mpg, reliable, fine car"

"I bought this car used with 41k on it. I have put the last 145k on it and have had no real problems. Had to replace the ignition switch (free recall) and the computer on the engine ($250 fix). Besides normal maintenance oil, tires, brakes, etc nothing has gone wrong. Does not burn oil and has the origional clutch. Still average 31mpg per fill up. Paid $7000 back in 2007 and have gotten my moneys worth out of it."

Pros: "Great gas millage, reliable, GREAT cabin airfilter"

Cons: "repairs needed were covered by recall"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car is one of the best cars I have owned. It is too bad that GM decided to discontinue the Saturn line. This car has been very reliable, with very little repairs needed. I love the OnStar. This is a great car for anyone, who doesn't want to worry about unexpected repairs, and OnStar is always there to help if emergency help is needed. The gas millage is great. In short, "I love my Saturn"."
