2004 Saturn ION 3 2.2 from North America
Good maybe very good
Suspension bushing replaced after delivery.
Brakes need servicing at 50 thou k.
This vehicle was very inexpensive and offered good value for the money. Good acceleration and feels very solid at highway speeds with the bigger tires and wheels of the Ion 3. The polymer panels are excellent and the body looks brand new.
The seats front and back are very hard and uncomfortable. The windows squeek at the top rubber gasket. This is the first time I ever had this problem on any car. Very good radio.
I will seriously consider buying another because of the polymer panels. If Toyota built cars with Panels I would buy their vehicles. A friend has the original model year Saturn sl and it looks and runs brand new.
Saturn is worth consideration.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
