I purchased a 2004 Saturn Ion in February. I've also had some problems with my vehicle not starting in the mornings! The only difference from my issue is that I live in Florida and it's always hot so it can't be because the car is too cold.
I recently had some maintenance done, and spent over $1200 to get things repaired. I had the mechanic check all the wiring, starter, everything, and nothing was wrong. When the car wouldn't start for me at the gas station. Someone tried helping me and told me to stick the key completely in the ignition nice and tight, and then try starting it. I did it and it turned on. This may help anyone who may be having some problems.
Overall the car is in damn good condition. It's really good on gas, and gets me from point A to B.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
