2007 ION-2 Sedan
Default Re: ION Quad longevity query

The car is galvanized, but keep after rust. That's one thing that kills unibody cars up here quicker than anything. Rust not only looks bad, but once it's bad enough, it compromises crash safety. Otherwise, shocks and struts every 100k or so to keep the ride and handling right, check bushings around that time, too, and replace them with polyurethane where possible. I only run mobil one synthetic in my engines, and my oil consumption shows how low the wear is, but expect to have to rebuild the engine around 300-350k best case to keep it running like new.

trifecta dealer for the U.P. and WI. There is no two door ion. Proudly driving one of the last saturns produced before gm killed the brand.
