2004 Saturn ION 2 from North America
I love my Saturn and will buy from them forever!
The tiny toggle switch on the driver's door which selects the side mirror you wish to adjust has popped out and I have yet to be able to stick it back in correctly.
The car handles very smoothly and is "whisper" quiet. If it wasn't for indicator lights on the dash, I would believe the car was not running when stopped.
The seats are comfortable and can fit even my 6'5" fiance, who can barely fit his long legs in my Jeep Cherokee.
Saturn's innovative dash design places the speedometer, odometer and other such dials in the center of the dash facing the driver, eliminating the problem of seeing your speed through or around the steering wheel. It is a bit unsettling at first, but very practical.
The car gets great gas mileage! My Jeep costs me $40 dollars to fill up at $2.50 a gallon, but the Saturn costs about $28 and lasts just as long. (We fill up once a week.)
There is not a lot of leg room in the back seat--something I failed to look into when I bought it. Excellent for the couple who wants more than a coupe, but probably not suitable for the family of 4-5, especially if they are tall!
The horn is rather squeaky and diminutive. I am considering installing a "deeper" sounding horn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
