2004 ION-1 Sedan
1994 SL2
Default Whats the difference between level 2 and level 3 ?

I did a quick search but nothing jumped out at me.
I'm selling my level 2 that is loaded and I had a guy calling about it and ask me what it didn't have that a 3 did have.
I wasn't sure but I knew where I could get the answer. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

For one thing they are

ION 1
ION 2
ION 3

The ION name does not use the word "leval"

What came standard on some ION's were options on other ION's. Then some options on some ION's could not be bought on other ION's. Kinda like this, The ION 1 or ION 2 could not be ordered with the enhanced performance package that included the 2.4L VVT.

To be more specific what was the difference between a 2004 Ion 2 and a 2004 Ion 3 ?

Well a simple internet search brought this up.

http://consumerguideauto.howstuffwor...-equipment.htm

http://consumerguideauto.howstuffwor...-equipment.htm

I did not read to see if everything was listed so there might be a few thing not mentioned like seat coverings or other items.

Maybe you could do an internet search.

Not quite. I was sorta hoping for a sales brochure that showed the upgrade differences. I thought I remembered one at the dealer.

You act as if you've never heard someone refer to their trim level as a level 1, level 2, or a level 3. The Saturn dealership that I bought mine from did as well. Though you are right in regards to the window sticker, it does not say "level" on it.

Don't poke fun at someone for calling it a level if you can't spell the word right.

Default Re: Whats the difference between level 2 and level 3 ?

And to answer your question, RogerO, the main differences are fog lights, standard 16'' alloy wheels, and an upgraded cloth (or the option of leather) interior. I'm not positive if there's any suspension differences (at least I don't think there is). Power locks and windows are also standard, etc. Basically all of your convenience options are already there, plus the potential for some of the better options (such as the 2.4L) that aren't available for level 2's.

I hate to sell this car,because it is a beaut,but something had to go.

Yes I've seen people say ION level 1,2, or 3 in the past just as I've seen the incorrect spelling of "level. But I take full responsibility for my spelling and say it was wrong. So do two wrongs make it right?

Question, did the ION 2 come with the rear seat center mounted cup holders?

I don't think the sedan did. I've never actually been in an Ion sedan, so I couldn't say. I want to say that they're built into the back of the driver's arm rest. All trim levels of the coupe came with rear bucket seats with cup holders in between each seat. It's not like some sedans where you can pull down the arm rest and pop out the cup holders.

Yep the QC has them between the seats. Don't think the ION 1, or 2 "sedan" ever got the rear seat cup holders. Leather in a ION 2 would that have been dealer installed, I think so. Not factory at least.

In 2004 were the gauges the same color on the 1, 2, and 3?

No, the level 3 has silver gauges. The others had a black background.

No cup holders in the rear of my Ion 2. It does have a sliding armrest,which I thought was pretty neat.
Just showed the car to a young couple and they loved it,now if they can just get the money.

Yep, had dealer installed rear cup holders in my duaghters ION 2. In fact they installed alot of them and added them to the addendum along with things like pinstripes, and tinted windows. In fact a coworker liked the one that came factory installed in my ION 3 he bought it for his ION 1
