Re: Goodbye....and thanks!

Glad to read you're going to pull through after that crash, Ryan. I replaced my '06 Ion with another Delta platform car - a 2015 Buick Verano.

Since Buick pulled the plug on this model, there are...

Re: Does GM really need two brands of trucks?

GMC started, in part, to give P-O-B-Cad dealers a way to sell pickups and vans, too. Now, it's become too profitable to part with as buyers have bought into the brand's "professional grade" marketing...

Re: Dry rubbing sound when turning steering wheel?

Sorry, I sold my Ion about three months after I posted that information so that's why I never followed up.

Re: Getting ready to hop out of my Ion and into...

So far, I do enjoy my Verano. It's very quiet inside, it's full of firsts for me and it's quite quick. I have to remind myself I don't need a key to open the doors or to start the engine. The safety...

A new-to-me '15 Buick Verano Turbo; I pick it up tomorrow after work. My Ion's been a great car for more than 10 years - commuting, driving for pleasure, hauling items for work, schlepping co-workers...

With no leads from here, I ended up using the Ion as a trade-in yesterday and purchased a 2015 Buick Verano Turbo that had been setting on a rural car dealer's lot for 15 months. I drop off the Ion...

For some reason, I'm not able to add text to the ad I created in the classifieds; I notified Charlie. Until that's fixed, here are the car's basics plus some details:

Re: 04 Ion 2.2 automatic- poor gas mileage

Steve L - what about your tire pressures? Are they too low? Are you or your daughter carrying nonessential items that add extra weight in the trunk or back seat/floor?

Re: Bringing home an Ion

Great Ion you found and bought, congratulations!Just FYI - the upshift indicator light was disabled on the cars equipped with the 2.4 engine. I've never seen mine come on after 10 years of driving it.

Re: Power window and mirror problems

No, they only offered to keep looking for the issue behind why the mirrors don't work. My next step, as they outlined previously, would have been at a dealership service department.

Re: Power window and mirror problems

Wires fixed or replaced and now the windows all work from the driver's seat. The new wiring didn't help the mirrors but since I don't adjust those nearly as often I wasn't worried about them. It took...

Re: Power window and mirror problems

My power windows save for the RF, and both sideview mirrors quit working in October. Power locks still work, though. Car's got almost 121K on the clock.

It spent two Saturdays at a local repair...

Re: Dry rubbing sound when turning steering wheel?

Elsongs, my Ion's been doing this for a few years but until this year, it only did it during extreme temperatures. Now I hear it regularly regardless of temperature. I think there's a cloth or nylon...

Re: 06, Ion 2, auto, 2.2l, 80k

That sound could be the evaporative emissions carbon canister. If so, it's normal for it to make 4 or 5 consecutive clunks; both of my Ions have...

Re: I'm thinking this killed the saturn brand

Citation 84,

If you're considering buying a Verano, let me know if you do; I'd like to read your opinion of it. I hope to pick up a '15 later this year to replace my Ion before the next-gen...

Re: limited to 110? WTF?

In some cases, isn't a vehicle speed-limited because the accessory drive (fan belt or belts) will not handle higher speeds?

Re: 100,000-mile report

The verdict fell in the middle of the repair cost spectrum, between a leaky hose and a new engine; the car leaks coolant because it needs a new water pump. I'll likely have them replace the...
