Advice: You'll be hooked once you take it for a test driveMy Ion handles great, gets great gas mileage and it look wonderful. This is my first Saturn and it's been a great experience. The dealership treated my like a valued customer, not just a dollar sign.

Advice: DO NOT BUY THIS CAR ITS HORRIBLE!!!!I would never recommend to anyone to buy this car. I wish someone warned me about the problems this car has. My car has been back to the dealer every month since i bought it in July of 2005. I wish I bought some other car and not this one.

Cons: Leg room in the rear seat, Fog light button hard to see
Advice: Visit a Saturn Dealership it will exceed your expectations.This is my first Saturn experience. I've bought 3 new cars in the past and there is nothing like going into a Saturn dealer and being treated like a friend and not a dollar sign. I bought a Saturn ION 3 Sedan with leather, 2.4 performance package with the Saturn Advanced Sound System. This advanced sound system package is definately worth to op for the fuel mileage is well over 30mpg. I compared the Honda Civic, Toyota Corrola and the Chevy Cobalt. The Saturn ION has better handeling, more power, and good fuel economy to beat any import you put up to it. Especially for price, quality, and dealership experience. I paid 16,200.00 I bought the car at Saturn of Clearwater, Florida. Jack Peck and Matt Finch totally exceeded my expectations of the Saturn Experience. I fully recommend this Saturn Dealer of Clearwater, Florida. I drove over a 100 miles just to buy the car there.
Cons: Nothing at this time.
Advice: If your looking for a car that gets good gas mileage and extra features this is it.I just purchased my first Saturn-Ion approxitmately a month ago and I must say that I'm very impressed with this vehicle. What is considered standard options with this car is extra on other GM models(ON-STAR; hands free cell phone; GPS; and XM-radio). The gas mileage is very good. Styling is good as well is the ride. Plenty of front room for the driver and front passanger. Back seat area is a little limited on leg room but all in all it's a very nice vehicle.
Pros: ride, comfort, and handling.
Cons: rear seat leg room,also the driver needs a left foot rest.
Advice: buy the ION 3 with the 2.4 litre engine.So far I love my ION 3 with GPS on star, eletronic power steering, performance suspension, variable valve timing, alloy wheels ( 16 inch ) compass and temp. gauge in rear view mirror, traction control, Dash board gauge pod in center of dash board, battery in trunk, large trunk, timing chain, 170 hp, good accelatration, good braking, smooth ride and handling, six in dash cd system etc, etc. S___w the car critics. What else can you ask for? I even like the plastic doors.
