Hey! What the heck are you doing with my nice black Ion?!?!

Congratulations on the new Saturn Ion. You're right too. I did think it was another hater thread.

Is that YOU sitting in the ION?

ION 1-2-3? How could someone easily tell, by the fog lamps?

The fog lamps and the X/cross type wheels are the two things I look for to ID a 3.

Congratulations!

What did you do with the wagon?

And don't bother with the grass - fertilizing makes it grow faster and then you have to mow every other day!

You got me! I was expecting the hate letter. But I read them with the amazement that someone could have a bad experience with thier Saturn. My has been decent car for 11 yrs. And it does have it share of quirks. (mostly unrepaired problems that I just put up with). Enjoy your new car.

Did you see the shine on the old '97 of mine I spent too much time watering and waxing it to spend any time watering silly old grass


Dr. Bob I traded it at the dealer could have got more private I guess but that is work

Olara No that is the GF behind the wheel I and behind the camera.

I love the black! My fiance and I looked high and low for a black with everything we wanted on it, but couldn't find one. SO we ended up with silver... and we love it just as much

Congrats! It looks great!

Black cars .... There's just something so cool about them! VERY NICE!

If your out west this spring, my lawn needs some TLC and my Saturn needs waxing too! I'll take all the help I can get!

Simply amazing how good that polymer looks even after many years of service!

That car's awesome.

Henry Ford had something there when he said:

"I'll paint a car any color as long as it's black."

Black cars do look awesome. However, living where I do, you would very quickly learn to hate the color. Between 100 plus degree days in the summer, and the dirt road, the car would be a nightmare to own.
