Default What Year is my ION

What's up Saturn fans!
I just picked up a used Saturn ION Red Line a few days ago and i'm trying to figure out what year it is?

I don't have a manual for it, just a user CD that was in the glove box.

Any help on figuring it out would be greatly appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thanks guys, turns out it's a 2005 and not a 2004. It was made in October of 2004, but the VIN indicates it's a 2005 ION.

Manufactures usually start rolling out the next year model before the end of the year.

ppl cant wait until the next year, and rush stuff out!

Totally. I was kind of questioning my 2004 finding on the lable of the driver side door jam due to that same thing. since it was made only a few months before 2005, I figured I was probably wrong. Kinda cool what else you can find out by looking up your VIN number.
