Re: Adding side curtain airbags to 2007 Ion 3

And didn't increase passenger protection very much according to IIHS and NHTSA.

Went form "poor" to marginal", IIRC.

Re: clank in motor

I don't know, but I wouldn't drive it until it's diagnosed. It may be the timing chain from your description of the sound.

There are You Tube videos documenting the sound of a timing chain going...

Re: 2004 ION 5 Speed Automatic

Used by other manufacturers as well.

Switched to GM 4 speed auto in 05 which worked a lot better.

Many complained about "shift flare" and feel. Many were re-programmed.

Other than that, it's...

Just had this problem: Cracked filler neck and associated parts.

Re: Where do these wires go? 2005 Ion 2

Glad you got it sorted.

Sorry to hear your car was laid up. I've admired it for years. The color is not common and the mods you have made are tasteful and subtle.

Re: body panel swap

I've seen a Quad with the sedan nose running around here, locally.

The only fitment problem is the sedan front doesn't quite match the lines of the coupe at the mirror area. Otherwise it doesn't...

Re: Need new tires

That1man: I think that's the correct way to replace only a pair: new ones on the rear, older ones on the front.

The reason for that escapes me at the moment.

Re: Engine compatibility

The 04 used an Aisin five speed auto. The 07 used the GM 4 speed.

There might be complications there.

Re: Key stuck

Rob: if your car is an automatic there is a small square panel under the steering wheel. Take that off and feel for a little button inside. That button will release the key.

You can do that until...

Re: Anyone had any issues with getting recalls fixed ?

The recalls I've done took time. Each took a few days up to a week. Repairs as well. But finally fixed. PITA, but a relief when done. No more cards in the mail.

Re: Pretty sweet deal on an 06 Ion. Need some guidance

Re: Ion or Astra?

The 1.8 in the Astra will need more maintenance: timing belt as opposed to chain. More frequent adjustments and spark plug intervals.

1.8 used in the Chevy Cruze.

Re: Long time S-Series owner. Getting new car, looking at Ion, thoughts?

More nonsense. Ecotec was designed by GM Powertrain NA, Opel and SAAB. Made in Spring Hill and Tonawanda NY.

IONs did not have power steering pumps, they're electronically boosted.
