Re: Reasonable asking price

Agree.... Two cars have been great, even though the Saturn has averaged about 3K miles per year but downsizing to a condo with a single parking spot.

Big decision and a lot of trade offs but time...

Dizzy Re: Reasonable asking price

Thanks.... Service and recalls are up to date, tires have about 80% tread left and brakes were done last spring. A/C is normal and rust proofing has kept fuel/brake lines in great condition. ...

Reasonable asking price

I am unfortunately at the point where we have to downsize to one vehicle so will be selling my 2006 Ion3 Coupe.

It has been a great car and still is with no issues. It has the 2.4L engine, leather...

Re: Ion-2 Equipment

My daughter's has both options and "Airbag" is on the headliner above the B pillar if side airbags are present and "without" ABS/Traction Control, the right grey button above the radio is blank. If...

Re: 2007 ion rear brake knocking

Some time ago on a Monte Carlo, I had a problem with rear brakes after refit where the rear brakes clicked with light pressure. Turns out there was a slight threaded effect on the drums and the...

Re: No sound from radio

Might want to remove, clean and reinstall your aerial. Had a similar problem and while it may not have been the culprit the radio worked and hasn't stopped since. If only the radio wasn't working...

Re: Hood Release cable broke

For what it's worth, the under hood latch is designed to prevent the hood from flying off so unless it is not working properly, it should do the job. A bungee cord should prevent the hood from...

Re: Too good to be true?

My 2006 Ion 3 QC has just over 51K Kilometers on it which is close to 30K miles. I can vouch for the mileage and I am sure mine isn't the only one with low mileage. It has been a second car and is...

Re: AC ok, parked for 3hrs, now its dead!

I agree with fdryer, and would add that the fact that the A/C didn't work after parking for 3 hours may just be coincidental with whatever the actual problem turns out to be. It could have failed...

Re: 10 Year Special Coverage 10187 / Recall

My 2006 had the ignition recall completed and when I picked up the car they told me they ordered a power steering part because the power steering was now a recall. I also got a letter confirming...

Re: Aftermarket Side Mirrors

I would stick with the same style. The base where it attaches to the door may be the same for both styles but I don't know that for sure and personally I prefer the QC style to the sedan The sedan...

Re: Aftermarket Side Mirrors

Make sure you get the right design. The designs are different on the coupe and sedan. Can't remember the exact difference but they are not the same in appearance. Either may actually fit and if...

Re: 2006 Ion 2.2

I have to think there would be codes set if that is misfire(s) related. Almost sounds like leaking exhaust valves but that also doesnt make a lot of sense related to a head gasket replacement unless...

Re: After 10 years and 5 months it is time say Goodbye

Re: Ion hit.... Again

I estimate $3-3,500 for repair so could be a write-off. The car looks like it was in nice condition before the crash. Could be wrong but if the repairs are more than 60% of the estimated value then...

Re: 04 Ion help after plug change.

The cylinders are numbered from left to right looking at the engine compartment from the front of the car. P0301 would refer to the first cylinder on your left or passenger side of car. Hopefully...

Re: They finally recalled the key cylinder switch!

Probably shouldnt be a life or death situation but I had a Valiant in the 70's that would stall out in a left turn typically in the middle of an intersection. Power steering and brakes... gone.. ...

Re: How long did your battery last in your ION??

Re: 07 Ion with multiple issues

With the problem being intermitent it could just be a bad connection on the speed sensor. Seems like the transmission behaves if it gets the right info so you may have bought a lot of car for $500.

Re: I'm gonna shoot it!

Too soon to expect improvement from additive. If it is working, you may see the light come on a few more times with the interval increasing each time.

Re: Is an ion coupe a good choice?

My insurance considers the coupe a 4 door car and this avoids the higher rating normally given a coupe.

Any chance it could be related to the stopping motion rather than the brakes themselves. Maybe something, suspended, moving against a moving part only when the car is decelerating and presumably...
