Re: Have You Experienced the Ignition Switch Issue?

There are numerous threads on this issue that go back to 2007 and beyond. See one such example where I detailed the process to replace it and my feelings on the issue 5 years ago: ...

Re: Saturn Parts Availability

Why should I have to go to Ebay for parts when *no* dealers in my area have them in stock?

Think of it from the perspective that it's not *only* a wheel, but many parts that are no longer...

Re: Saturn Parts Availability

Not to spread fear among people here, but who is to say that the new "Government Motors" is obliged to make or carry parts for any degree of time?

I just tried to get a new alloy wheel for my 03...

That's the right part. See my post for details:

You'll pay about $30 or more at a Saturn dealer for the same part.

Re: Petition: Tell General Motors to Keep Saturn

I should also mention that I probably feel no remorse for Saturn or GM because I'm pissed that the company wants MY TAX MONEY for a bailout, so if I come off a little on the critical side with my...

Heh. Well, I recall that you were always a big fan of the S-Series. I guess you don't feel entirely different than I do though, considering that you bought a Subaru (a car that I've been...

Re: Petition: Tell General Motors to Keep Saturn

I really don't know why anyone is surprised. Saturn has become just like *EVERY* other GM brand... A name badge for a line of cars that show up on some other global GM brand.

The weird thing is...

Re: 2003 saturn ion service vehicle light

Mine went on at the end of last fall. Sometimes the light would shut off and stay off for a few days before coming back on. Ended up being an oxygen sensor. You might be able to determine if...

Heh. Long time no see, Sonata (I haven't been to these forums much over the past 2 years). Guess you and I are digging into some of these little maintenance things ourselves now that the warranties...

Re: Changing ION ignition switch

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've posted in these forums, but I wanted to say thanks for the advice in this thread.

About 2 months ago, my 2003 ION failed to start as my wife and I were...

Re: 3000 Mile Maintenance

The computer makes calculations based upon the type of driving that you do. It does not care about the oil quality explicitly, and does not "test" the oil. It uses programming to determine how...

Re: ION 2 Brake Inspection

It depends upon your driving. Some folks need to replace them often (under 10,000 miles). Some last well over 30,000 miles. I had mine checked with a recent tire rotation (36,000 miles) and they...

Re: 3000 Mile Maintenance

Depending upon how you drive the car, and a number of other conditions, it's a good chance that your ION will not alert you that you need an oil change until you've put about 6,000 miles on the oil. ...

Got a Squeak? Add a Shim.

Seeing as I am the king of procrastination, I ignored a slight squeak in my car until after my warranty expired. Well, I really hated to go to the dealer because it took them half a dozen visits to...

This one was allegedly inside the door, at the speaker cabinet. I've heard of others that have experienced this as well. It was leaking through the bottom of the door, and into the car.

We affectionately named it the "mini-block" more than a year ago, after coming to the same conclusions. :)
