2007 Saturn ION from North America
Had to get both lower control arms replaced at 19,000 miles. There had been a rattle coming from the right front side when driving over bumps. I thought just the right side was affected, but the dealership replaced both of them.
Wipers don't work properly in cold snowy weather. The cold air makes them warp into a curved shape, which makes it impossible for them to maintain contact with the windshield. The snow hits the windshield, and they can't remove it properly, making for dangerous driving during snowstorms due to very bad visibility through the snow and ice encrusted windshield.
Hood latch rusted out, making it difficult to close the hood properly. I've had it oiled from time to time with some WD-40, but of course the problem keeps recurring.
Trunk keyhole rusted out. Why didn't they use stainless steel like anybody with a brain would do? I guess using a non-stainless steel was cheaper, and not detectable by the consumer at the time of purchase = MORE PROFITS!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
