Is it possible to change steering wheels?
 
I don't really like the steering wheel on my 04 Ion 3 QC. If I was able to get a hold of an 04 Ion redline steering wheel, would it be possible to switch them?

Will it fit?

Do they use the same airbag?

Will a saturn service center do it?

Any help would be great thanks.

Haha, I was going to post this exact question a little bit earlier but got distracted. I'd also be very interested in knowing.

As far as I know, it would expensive.

Because the steering wheel is different (the whole idea, right?) the airbag would be different too and therefore could not be "swapped" from one wheel to another.

This means that you would have to incure the expense of not only the steering wheel itself, but also the airbag too -- an expensive piece of hardware, I am told.

Good luck.

$700 and change is what I heard to upgrade to a leather wheel over stock. That's for the part.

The cost is exorbitant. I looked into swapping the 4 spoke ION wheel into my VUE. Even on my discount at work, it was like $983.

Might check around your local dealerships and find out where they send there totaled Ion's. The 2004 Redlines and all 2005 Ion's have that wheel. My airbag didn't go off in my accident. Worth a shot if you’re really interested. :yes:
