good car very few in junk yard

overall I recommended this car for a small family or college student due it affordability and low maintenance needs. however when there is a problem the parts can be pricey for a 9 year old car. This year also has onstar and that is always a plus in the need of emergency or hands free dialing with a personal phone number unique to the car. :)

I had one of the original IONs from 2003, and I loved it. I have always liked this car until now.

There was nothing to dislike about this car. It is an ideal car for a single person or a couple. Although the back seat is a little tight, you could put two people in there, at least for a short drive.

Recall Notices

2007 Saturn Ion (4/30/2014)

Campaign Number: 14E021000
Component Name: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Description: UCI-FRAM Group is recalling certain LS1328 ignition Switches sold as Wells LS1328, Duralast LS1328, Airtex 1S6097, and Carquest 53-27479, and LS1497 Ignition Switches sold as Wells LS1497, Duralast LS1497, Airtex 1S10961, and Carquest 53-27967, for use on various General Motors model and model year vehicles during repair and replacement of the original ignition switch. The weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the affected ignition switches to move out of the run position, turning off the engine and disabling the air bags.
Defect: If the ignition switch moves from the run position to accessory, the car would stall and the air bags will not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury to the occupants.
Corrective Action: UCI-FRAM Group has notified its purchasers to quarantine and return all inventory. Any switches already installed in vehicles will be replaced by GM dealers as part of NHTSA recall 14V-047, free of charge. UCI-Fram's purchasers should contact UCI-FRAM Group at 1-800-890-2075. GM vehicle owners requiring additional information on that recall campaign should contact GM at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-762-2737 (Pontiac) or 1-800-553-6000 (Saturn).
