2005 VUE 3.5L
Default 2006 ION 3 With Enhanced Performance Package

I am looking at getting this ION with the Enhance Performance Package. Has anyone purchased this yet? If so, how do you like it? Please give me any good or bad feedback!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2006 ION-3 Sedan
2009 VUE 2.4L
Thumbs Up Re: 2006 ION 3 With Enhanced Performance Package

>>Bill, I formerly owned an 03 ION3 with the 2.2L and now own an 06 ION3 with the 2.4. Just make sure you test drive the 2.4L before you buy. Neither choice is a bad one but in my opinion I like the 2.4 a whole lot better and I wish we had the 2.4L in our 05 VUE. To me it is very much worth the price difference.<<

Disney255- I am not jumping down your throat but check out some of the other threads and also use the search feature. Several of us have posted on this subject. In late June I bought one of the first available ION3s with the 2.4L engine and performance package. I currently have over 4000 miles on it.
I posted the above in response to Bill just the other day. I like the 06 ION3 equipped that way very much. It handles better and has noticeably more power. Given the fact that the MSRP was lowered over the 05s and more features now come standard, the 06 price is extremely comparable to an 05 with the GM Employee Discount for Everyone. My 03 ION3 was a good car, but the 06 with enhanced performance package is even better. Whatever you do, test drive both and see if you agree.
Best of luck to you!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2005 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: 2006 ION 3 With Enhanced Performance Package

Sorry about that. I actually did do a search through all the Ion Threads. I must have missed it. Thank you for your feedback though. My wife and I test drove an Ion 3 with the 2.4 last night and when you stepped on the gas the engine was rather loud. Is that the case with yours?

By Saturn standards, no, mine is not loud. I tend to like an engine I can hear. I'm not sure what you were driving before however and I guess noise perception depends on what you are used to and like.
