2007 ION-3 Quad Coupe
Default ION Quad longevity query

I'm told by trusted sources that I have AT LEAST another 60k+ miles to go before this becomes of any concern, but I'm trying to plan for the future...

I'm still very much in love with my Saturn -- she's perfect for me and has had all recommended loving care maintenance and then some -- and I'd like to keep her, essentially, forever. I figure if guys are still driving wonderfully maintained and/or restored cars from the '50s, my 2007 ION Quad Coupe has Methuselah potential too.

I'm figuring that down the line I may need a whole new engine put in, or custom restorative suspension work, or...whatever. But I am woefully naive about such things and am wondering if anyone on here could point me in reliable, trustworthy directions for such future work, potentially at least, anywhere in Southern California. (I mean, I know there are specialty shops which just rebuild Mustangs, for instance.)

Any advice, anyone? There is strong sentimentality at stake here!

With my thanks,
