2003 ION-2 Sedan
Happy How many miles on YOUR Saturn Ion?

My green 2003 Saturn Ion Level 2 Sedan is up to about 129,300. Just wondering how everyone else's ions are holding up? This has been one my favorite cars yet, and I've had about 8-10 others.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

144k on my 2003 Ion 3 with the CVT. Usual problems (LCA bushings, ignition switch and wiper transmission linkage) but nothing so far with the transmission. I'm working through a starting problem now (another thread) but without that problem, the car still looks and runs good. Just afraid to put any money into it because of the transmission.

2004 ION-3 Sedan
Default Re: How many miles on YOUR Saturn Ion?

04 ion-3 auto special edition. 112,000. Usual starting issues now and then. Some error codes. Seems like my rack and pinion is loose when I'm stopped and jiggle the wheel, changed the front wheel barings (silent ride now), engine ticking noise when it's first started warm/cold and sometimes on a quick start off a light (oil pump I've heard?), squeaking rear suspension and clunking front over bumps and cracks, I've been running Bosch +4 plugs for 25,000 miles now (no issues), water pump has a slight leak every now and then. Just drove it from Boca Raton, FL to overland park, KS. Smooth trip went 70-80 the whole way. Falken tires. Got a hole in my muffler. I want a better header and down pipe then straight pipe from there. Got a ram intake on it. I can't get the fuel filter to come off the silver tube for anything

P1781
P0113
P0700
