Last Saturn Ion Ever Built For Sale by Owner in the SaturnFans.com Classifieds

Flashback Friday: The Last Saturn Ion

You may recall a couple of months ago GM had an auction, liquidating lots of classic cars. They even pulled the last built Saturn Ion out of the museum it was in to put it up for bidding. Well, this is that car. It was also featured in at least two articles on this website (here and here). This Saturn Ion is in fantastic shape, as it was stored in a museum. It now has 2,500 miles on it.

The polymer-paneled sedan features the GM 2.2 Liter Ecotec engine with automatic transmission and Goodyear 195x60x15 tires.

This Ion is up for sale because it was given to me by my grandfather and uncle as a wedding present after GM auctioned it off. I'm not a huge car person, so although it's a very nice gift, I really can't appreciate it very much for what it is. It's currently being used to just drive around town, pick up groceries... simple stuff like that. It really seems like kind of a waste. I hope to find it a good home where it can be truly happy. Thanks for your help!

NY Times: GM Had Considered Selling Saturn Earlier this Fall, May Now Buy Out Saturn Retailers

Bill Vlasic from the New York Times reported yesterday that GM is exploring the idea of "a significant shrinking of its North American operations, including shutting more factories and streamlining its sprawling brand lineup, according to people with knowledge of GM's deliberations. One move under discussion, for example, would have GM buy out dealers that exclusively sell Saturns and market the cars through its Buick-Pontiac-GMC dealers instead."
