Re: What color is this called and how rare is it?

There's a Quad here in town in that color with an 05-07 sedan front clip.

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.

Keep us all posted on your...

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: Should I take a look

EPA #s are 20 and 26 for the 2.0 supercharged Redline, Sirpaulgerman.

The dealer is using #s for the standard 2.2.

Plus it also says that premium is required.

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.

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

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

There's is no power steering pump on an ION. They are electronically boosted.

And nonsense to changing the timing chain every 80,000 miles.

I own an 05 and have zero worries about the BS you...

Re: Yes or No

The ad says automatic, so that should be a give-away as to which transmission it has.

Automatic listed in an 03-04 Quad = CVT [or in Saturn marketing "vti"].
