2004 Saturn ION Review

2004 Saturn ION Review

Pros

  • Low price, customer-focused dealers, large trunk capacity, coupe's innovative rear access doors.

Cons

  • Flat seats with little support, limited rear legroom, low-grade interior materials, build quality not up to competitors' standards.

What's new

Saturn has upgraded the Ion with new fabrics, improved plastics and a new radio with MP3 and satellite radio capability. The electric steering has been revised for improved feel at highway speeds, while the sedan's five-speed automatic and the coupe's CVT have been recalibrated for improved gear selection and response. Finally, Saturn has installed additional sound-deadening material to reduce cabin noise. A Special Edition version of the sedan provides black exterior paint, distinctive 16-inch wheels and a two-tone interior.
