Default Another Positive Ion Review

http://www.usnews.com/usnews/biztech...saturn_ion.htm

This review does not give much detail and the reviewer seemed to really like the Ion.

The 1st reviews seem to be politically directed and one fed on the other. They surely did not match to my experiences. I know the ecotec can be a lot more than what is in the Ion. I think they are coming on slow with what can be accomplished with this engine. When we installed the L850 line at Powertrane in Buffalo, GM had Lotus, Opel and even Toyota people envoled in this project. This is a world engine and identical lines are being built throughout the World.

This is a fine review in which the reviewer seems to value the ION's practical points and reasonable price. It seems as though he spent a substantial amount of time evaluating the car, especially if he was toting arounf his 4 year old in the back seat.

He doesn't expect it to be a clone of most compacts, nor does he try to treat it as a race car.
