"I have owned this car since 2008 and it has been the best little car I have ever owned. It's just time for an upgrade, I really wish Saturn was still around so that I could buy another one. The only major issue I have had with it since I bought it was...it is so low to the ground. I literally feel like I am crawling out of a hole when getting out or into it. Although, I have never had any major repairs done to it and it is still going strong."
Pros: "Great mileage, sporty looks, very good handling"
Cons: "Transmission service. Killed by GM."

"My first was '95 SC2, followed by '97 SC2, '03 Ion Sedan,'04 Ion Quad & finally '09 Aura XR. The only 'problem' with first two was transmission rebuilds, at the 104k ('95) & 141k ('97). Had one belt tensioner go out, one coil pack go bad.
The first two averaged 34MPG(combined) The Ions never quite made the EPA rates, even under the better conditions, averaging only 23-25MPG.
I still own three of the five.... With the exception of the Aura,the odometers are WELL over the 100k. Like previously stated.....it was a sad day when GM pulled the plug on SATURN."
"We have owned this car for over 4 years. This car is just fantastic, reliability,quality of construction is execellent! Plus our gas mileage is out of this world,,,,40 MPG in the city, and 55MPG on the highway! We plan on keeping this car for as long as possible."
