Think folks who aren't do-it-yourselfers tend to take it to the dealer while it's under warranty...just a guess.

Hate to bust your balloon on this topic, but that's baloney. Just had mine re-sealed for the 2nd time. It's a problem that will recur because it's a defective design; no gasket is used and they...

A lot of folks get defensive about the ION vs. S-Series comparisons and like to assert that the ION is better. Let's put it into perspective though; the S-Series cars were designed TWELVE YEARS...

Probably the oil cooler than conveniently (sarcasm) sits in the Vee of the engine block, requiring the removal of the intake manifold to service (re-seal) it. Make sure they do it now because the...

Yeah the article is just a "preview/first look" kinda thing, not an in-depth test. A one-pager with a lot of estimates and presumptions. Wait for a full review before you get too excited.

A threat to the ION?! :dizzy:

I doubt the success, or lack thereof, of the Relay will have anything to do with whether GM keeps the polymer/spaceframe construction for Saturns. I think they've already decided to phase it out...

IIRC, originally, the new Opel/Vauxhall small car was to share the ION's Delta architecture, so GM anticipated selling right hand drive models (the Vauxhalls); they subsequently went with a different...
