I love this little car. I have an older model, but it holds up so well, I rarely have issues. It is extremely dependable, which is amazing considering it's 13 years old! I have taken it for long trips to Phoenix (we live in southern California), and we've never experienced a problem. Because of its size, gas and oil changes are incredibly affordable. The trunk space is surprisingly large for it. I can easily throw in a few weeks of groceries without hassle. It's comfortable too. My husband, who is 6'4", can drive it no problem, although he does have to take the seat all the way back. Even with the use and abuse, nothing major has broken. I got lucky with the color and found one that was a nice bright blue. This helps me a lot in the parking lot when I look for my car! Anyway, I would h... (more)
Story
My car is uniquely colored, so I can always find it in a lot, because I'm the only one in this small city that has one like it. One time, I came out from shopping and couldn't open the door. I looked up to find out it wasn't my car! It was so embarrassing. That never happens!
Pros
It's dependable, affordable, and great on gas! There is a lot of trunk space for its size, and it can really take the abuse.
Cons
I'm not a fan of where the trunk pop-up switch is located. It's right on the drivers side floor. Ours broke, because my husband stepped on it.

I loved this car because in the 4 years that I owned it I had only one repair that had to be done. I also loved how comfortable I felt driving it. T gas mileage was excellent, I got about 23 miles city and about 45 miles freeway. I enjoyed the music system. It really looked nice and I was proud to drive it. The interior held up and there were no annoying noises to contend with. As a woman I appreciated how easy it was to find things under the hood, I could easily add oil, coolant etc. I have had much more expensive cars that had many problems, but my little Saturn Ion did not. The only problem I did have was with the ignition, and it was easy to fix. A locksmith came and made a new key using the lock on the trunk and for 85.00 Dollars it's only problem was solved. So if you or a member... (more)
Pros
The interior held up and was very comfortable. The reliability was the number one thing I appreciated. The sound system was great and so was the gas mileage.
Cons
I can only say there was the problem with the ignition.
