Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

The Ion Red Line, as Saturn's performance model, should be Saturn's first classic when it becomes eligible in 2029, along with the Sky and Sky Red Lines, though by definition, any surviving 1991-1993...

Re: Ion Key Won't Come Out

There should be a small door on the underside of the steering column. Open that and there should be a release button that enables you to eject the ignition key.

Re: The Saturn catalog or a reference on every make and model

The closest I have is a book titled "Standard Catalog of American Cars 1976-1999," which covers the first nine model years. Don't know if there's a 2000+ book yet but I doubt it; it's too early....

Re: Keyless Ignition killing People

The other half of that is that many of the people in the article were at least middle aged or seniors, IIRC, which coupled with an engine that emits ~50 dB at idle, they did not notice it.

Re: Keyless Ignition killing People

It's not much different than forgetting to remove the keys from the ignition switch, other than there's no physical item to put in a purse/pocket.

The driver has to remember to push the button to...

Re: New guy needs pointed in right direction.

ferret, something to keep in mind for the future is the fuel pump recall. I didn't have the 2.2L engine in mine when I had the work done but I thought the recall covered all engines, not just the...

Re: Anyone know any Redline's for sale?

Someone bought the red one in Michigan for sale last year with 31K on the clock. I haven't seen one surface since then.

Re: I think I may be leaving from Saturn ownership in 2019

Hey 2ndsout,

I left the Saturn fold in the fall of 2016 as my 2006 Ion was starting to give me maintenance issues regularly. I traded it for a 2015 Buick Verano that had languished on a rural...

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.

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...

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.
