2007 ION-3 Quad Coupe
Default Re: Looking into buying a Ion Quad coupe

In most cases, the '06-'07 are the better years out of all of them. I've gotten 36mpg hwy in my '07 2.4 auto, and I now have 65000 miles. Make sure the struts don't clunk, and you should be ok.

definitely test drive it, I wish they would have let me test drive my new car before buying it, or I probably wouldn't have. for the 2.4 equipped cars, 06s and 07s are identical besides the audio (07 is better).

The 2.4L IONs are outstanding no real problems. My Son drives a 2006 2.4L Wife drives a 2007 2.4L and I drive a 2007 ION 2.4L....all have been trouble free cars.

The radios that came in the 2006-2007's were
U1C
US8
US9

Give me the VIN to the car and I can tell you the one thats in it along with most anything else you might want to know about the car.

Why in GODS name would anyone buy a car without test driving it. Why in GODS name would anyone buy a car from anyone that would not let them test drive a car, help them Jesus.

saturn's policy, since it was a delivered car they would not let me test drive it, since it was a brand new car I still got the return period and they eventually got it looking and acting new.

Default Re: Looking into buying a Ion Quad coupe

I own a 2006 Ion 3 - Quad Coupe with 2.4l/auto...I have owned the car since new (almost 3.5 years)...has about 75,000 kilometers...this is my feedback

(i) 2.4l engine...rattles pretty good at startup..for 10 seconds or so...rattling seems more pronouced when cold

(ii) check engine light has come on about 10? times...over 3.5 years...
had a ignition misfire? code come on a few times...reset..no parts replaced...engine ran fan...coolant level light came on a few times...though level of coolant was fine...

(iii) did not start 4/5 times...typically on pretty cold days...when retried, has always started...from reading it looks like a likely will need an ignition switch...

(iv) few times started and ran like a dog for 10-15 seconds and the died?...retarted and ran ok...

(v) getting real bad knocking in front end lately, when going over bumps...seems from reading I will likely need sway bar end link bushings (or maybe swaybar bushings or struts? or control arm bushings?)

(vi) nice interior design IMHO...i like the layout...i have leather and power sunroof and navigation pkg? ..weather/compass on rearview mirror...two rear cup holders..trunk size is ok..

(v) decent gas mileage...handles good (have 16" rims and 205/55/16tires..original tires lasted around 70,000 kilometers)...excellent power with
2.4l...nice stereo..plays MP3s...looks pretty good IMHO..

overall not a bad small card...would likely rate it around 6.5/10, but unless I got a killer deal, would likely not buy another saturn...
