Mine stops in hot weather, but comes back when temps are in the 50s - 60s. Annoying as heck. Dealer has replaced the latches once.

There is a TSB out for a "creaking" noise from the roof area. The fix is to replace the drain channel above the door, I think.

Heh ... it will be confusing. So far I have spent $315 for the wheels and tires, $50 for the stereo and $150 for the seat. Still a lot cheaper than the upgrade to an ION 2. :-)

Kumho tires

The Firehawks (ION 3 tires and wheels) that I put on my ION 1 have acceptable dry traction, but they STINK on wet roads. They break free very easily if there's any water at all on the road.

Yeah, I think my car may be a little faster than the ION 3 with auto, since I have a manual transmission. But I think a 2.4 Alero with a manual would still be quicker.
