SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . my daughter bought a saturn ion iii. she has recently had trouble with her automatic transmission. saturn has acknoweldged a hard shifting problem from 2nd to 3rd, but since a high number of vehicles exhibit this problem, and they don't know what is causing it, it is being considered normal operation. my daughter's car exhibited this problem, but it has now begun to be a way more serious concern because it will completely slip, (lose all power), for what seems to be an ever increasing longer interval and more frequently. she has had this happen while trying to make a left hand turn with oncoming traffic. she now tries to avoid any situation at low speeds that might cause her injury, (she tries to make as many right hand turns to get to and from work as possible). saturn has had two service employees witness the problem, albeit in a straight line driving situation. they still refuse to repair/replace or admit a problem beyond the hard shifting. my daughter lives in mesa, az. her phone number is 480-577-3113, and name is elysia beckendorf. i mention mesa because of the unusual streets there. the majority of main city streets are six lanes wide with 45mph speed limits. that is a very scary scenario to be making a left hand turn in and lose power.*ak.Mileage was 4225 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 29, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL:SWITCH . i have had repeated problems with the exterior front lighting on my new 2003 saturn ion which is a safety hazard. on 5/15/03 i took the vehicle to the albuquerque saturn dealership to fix the front driver side running light and left turn signal. they replaced the bulbs, but i had to take it to the dealership again on 7/18/03 after having driven it less than 100 miles for the same problem. this time they replaced the entire headlamp assembly. then again on 9/29/03 i took it back to the dealership to have the passenger side front running light and turn signal replaced. i talked with the sales manager ben vigil and the service manager justin greenberg. i complained that i've spent more time at the dealership for unscheduled maintenance than routine maintenance, and i was concerned i had bought a lemon. i told them that if my turn signals aren't working properly, that is a safety issue. mr. greenberg told me that he probably gets two customers a day with the same problem (which shocked me). he said saturn has sent out new bulbs to the dealerships which they claim will solve the problem. we'll see..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 4248 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 09, 2004.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . saturn ion 3 electric power steering. 2003. power steering-electric: it appears that the electric power steering is programmed to give more assist in a panic situation. sensors detect when the steering wheel is being moved rapidly, and immediately give more assist, making the wheel very easy to turn. since most people over-correct in a panic situation, this increase in assist is exactly the wrong thing to do. this is especially noticeable on interstate highways where the speed really accentuates the effect. i do 90% of my driving on the interstate, so this is of particular concern to me. i now have 20,000 miles on this vehicle and have known about this odd steering behavior since about 2000 miles when i swerved to avoid an animal and almost drove off the road. if the car was still within the 30 day, 1500 mile buy back period, it would have gone back. even knowing that the problem exists, and occasionally giving the wheel a sharp movement so that i know how the car reacts, i almost hit the guard-rail when i was surprised by another car drifting into my lane on the date below. i tell every saturn ion owner that i meet about the problem. a friend's son drove their ion off the road about a month ago under similar circumstances. owners who don't often venture on to the interstates are reluctant to believe there is any such problem with their new car. the same is true of the saturn dealership that i have taken my car to. they send me on my way, drive a couple of miles, tell me they drove 50 miles and that the car is perfectly fine. i don't know of anyone who has been killed by this problem, but i'm sure it is only a matter of time.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AK52F73Z.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 29, 2004.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL . my 2003 saturn ion 2 sedan has had at least eight front turn signal or daytime running light bulbs fail since the car was delivered in february 2003. the bulbs in question are manufactured by wagner, and are type 5702. failure of front turn signal lamps creates the potential for an accident, since oncoming traffic has no indication of my intent to turn. the local dealership has examined the car on three or four occasions, and has found no objective reason for the failure. replacing the bulb corrects the problem, typically for several months but in several instances for less than a week. the bulbs in question are not available from national parts chains such as napa, advance auto parts, autozone, and pep boys; the only source is a saturn dealership, which charges approximately $8 for a replacement lamp. i have since experimented with using a sylvania 3157nall, which is apparently identical and is rated for use in daytime running light applications. it functions identically to the oem part, except that it appears to last much longer (it has yet to fail after several months), and is readily available from any automotive parts store for about a quarter of the cost. *la.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 1000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . when making turns, particularly right turns, my wife's new saturn ion quad coupe, loses power and hesitates after it gets the turn partially completed. this happens intermittently about once a week so it is tough to duplicate but it has caused her to be nearly hit several times by on coming traffic. the dealership states this is the way the vti transmission is designed to work so there is nothing to fix. saturn in spring hill did not deny this was how the transmission was designed to work. i asked if there were any service bulletins that would fix this and they said none would actually fix this problem and they had no idea how to fix it. they also refused to provide a written response to my certified return receipt letter even though i specifically requested a written response. people are taking their cars to independent transmission shops to be fixed. saturn is reimbursing some of these charges but they call it strictly a "customer satisfaction issue". complaints 10049664 and 10049638 sound very similar. i would suggest that you request that saturn provide all complaints filed with them about the vti transmission, especially where independent shops did repairs. those owners/independent shops could probably provide a wealth of info about vti transmission problems. i think you will find this is a safety problem and a recall is warranty. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 25, 2004.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with TIRES . about 1 month ago, i began to notice a thumping noise coming from what i thought was my front passenger tire. i began to try to establish the pattern of the noise and verified that it primarily occurs at low speeds of 20-25mph or high speeds of 50-55 mph when i apply the brakes. i took my car into saturn dealership 9/18/04 to have it 'checked out'. the mechanic diagnosed that i either had a failing wheel-bearing or i needed to replace my tires. the mechanic assured me that there was not immanent danger of driving the car. exactly one week later i was driving down a paved road and the wheel comes completely off. upon personal investigation, i find that all four lugnuts have broken off. i had the car towed back to the dealership where i was told that they "did not know why the tire came off, and there appeared to be no damage, so they offered to place the tire back on and 'send me on my way'. i chose to leave my car unrepaired at the dealership until the regional engineer could look at it, conveniently, the following day. the engineer supplied that there seemed to be no reason for the lugnuts to have broken and the tire to have come off. the engineer offered to further test the tire and 'take a closer look' at the parts that hold the tire on. the engineer told us he had placed the tire on another car and discovered that the noise was coming from a plug that had been placed in the tire over a year ago. he also stated he still did not know what caused the lugnuts to break and the tire to come off. he stated that saturn was not liable due to me having my tires rotated over a year ago by an outside company. he suggested he could "fix" my car if i were willing to pay for the damages incurred during the accident. he also suggested i file a claim through my vehicle insurance company.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 43000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 16, 2005.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . i purchased a saturn ion in june of 2003. i began having problems starting the car in october of 2004. it would not start and would just make a clicking noise when the key was turned. there was power to all accessories so it was not a battery failure. the service engine light would come on. after about 30 minutes of trying to get the vehicle to start, it would finally start once again (roughly at first) and the service engine light would disappear. i took it to the nearby saturn dealership after the first occurrence and was turned away because they "were too busy". i took it there the next day and they said that nothing was wrong with it except for an oxygen sensor which they replaced. i drove it home. it did it again twice in the next two days. i took the car back again and they replaced the ignition module. i thought that everything was ok until this past weekend (april 2005) when it did the exact same thing. i took it to saturn on tuesday and they could not recreate the problem and would not provide me with a loaner car for more than one day. i had no choice but to take my unreliable vehicle back. i contacted saturn corporate and filed a complaint. they stated that they would allow me to take the car back to the dealership and would get me a loaner for a few days but it was doubtful that they could get it to repeat the problem as it is intermittent. i have been told to not start it the next time and just have it towed to saturn. that's fine except what if it dies in the middle of the night and i am away from home with my two small children? my vehicle is less than two years old and i should not be afraid to drive it any distance for fear of being stranded! *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55310 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 24, 2006.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . my car won't start! at least every once in a while anyway. it's a 2003 saturn ion. i bought it used on 5/14/05 and a few months after, when it started to get cold in ga., it wouldn't start. after about 10-30 minutes, it would finally start as if there was no problem leaving me feeling like i was going crazy. i thought it may be the battery, so i replaced that (40.00 dollars). it still gave me problems that very night! i took it to the dealership, and had a diagnostic check done (40.00 dollars), they couldn't find anything wrong, and basically blew me off. discouraged, i left and gave up. it continued to act up 2 days later, which i just dealt with. i took it to the shop yesterday for a oil change and guess what? it wouldn't start while it was there. they told me that while they were about to take it to the wash it wouldn't start, and asked me if i had any problems. i said yea. they said they were sure they'd locate the problem that day. came back an hour later to tell me that it was the technician fault, claiming that he had left it in drive while trying to start it (how would he get it in drive if it wouldn't start?) anyway, it wouldn't start that night! at this point im going to get my future father in law involved since he is an engineer and have him stir the pudding. oh, and he believes it a short with the electrical system so we will have to have them to check that out. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AG52F93Z.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 12, 2006.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . since we purchased this vehicle brand new in 2003, the transmission has slipped occasionally upon normal acceleration. we brought this to the attention of the dealership at our regular maintenance appointments, and they told us that this was the normal functioning of the transmission. fast-foward 3 yrs, 40,000 miles, and the problem has become a threat to the safety of those driving in and around the vehicle. when attempting to make a turn out of a parking lot onto a major road, the car rolled down the hill into the road, but it would not move any farther once on a flat surface. i am lucky that no one was coming too close or fast behind me, or my vehicle would have been a sudden, unavoidable roadblock for sure. this also happened while i was attempting to make a left hand turn with heavy oncoming traffic. people were somehow able to avoid my car, although it was a major hazard to safety. these were terrifying experiences, and i immediately dropped my car off at the dealership that night (i happened to be down the road from the dealer when these events occurred). according to the dealership, the transmission fluid was very dark, fluid pump severely damaged, and the 2nd gear clutch and coast assembly "burned up". the transmission, pump, gears, clutches, and torque converter were replaced at a cost of $1250, which they claimed was a great deal for us, as this was claimed to be a $5500 job. i appreciate their efforts and attempt to rectify the situation, however i am still disappointed in the lack of quality control, and the apparent lack of research and development in the engineering of this vehicle. no one expects to need to replace a transmission in a car with 40,000 miles. my life was put at risk because of a manufacturing error in this vehicle, and i hope that the the nhtsa takes the necessary actions to prevent more lives from being put at risk or lost due to this error. .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AL52F53Z.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 20, 2006.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER:LINKAGES . i don't know what caused the failure, but it has never been abused, and the car has only 45747 miles as of the service date. we live in michigan, and although the manufacturer may want to claim that snow caused this failure, we have not had any snowfall prior to this date (10-25-06). i noticed that the windshield wiper arm was folded outward from the windshield. i took it to the dealer, and their diagnosis was that the support bracket was broken. however, there is no way to obtain the simple bracket. the entire assembly including the wiper motor which still functioned correctly had to be replaced. the parts of the assembly are a unitized module where no single part can be purchased individually. the total cost of this assembly (gm part number 15221904 according to the invoice) was $149.12 while labor and fees made up an additional $100. overall cost to fix was $250.91 with state taxes. i asked for the broken part, which is available for you to look at (i will take digital pictures if you so wish). additionally, while most of the mechanism is constructed of metal, the high stress points (the brackets) are made of brittle plastic. while no harm came to me because of this failure, the potential for catastrophe does exist. if this mechanism were to fail while one was driving, their vision would be obstructed and an accident could easily occur. this is particularly true in my case, where the driver's side wiper was rendered virtually useless. this defect could easily be corrected. the brackets which are both made of brittle plastic could be replaced with a more reliable metal part. to save precious pennies, saturn chose to construct this critical part of the car with an inferior material. the result is a design flaw potentially affecting the safety of thousands of unsuspecting saturn owners. i ask that consideration be made for them while this complaint is reviewed..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45747 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 08, 2007.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . the first time the ignition switch "passlock" sensor went out on my 2003 saturn ion ii, it was near zero degrees outside, my 2 month old son was along, and i was stuck on the road for several minutes trying to restart the vehicle. the problem is apparently that a sensor that controls the gas flow stopped working properly and the car died. i was able to pull to the side of the road. when trying to restart the vehicle, it initially did nothing. i waited several minutes, called for my son to be picked up, then tried again. after about 15 minutes it started without a problem. i learned that the ignition switch was faulty and had a faulty "passlock" sensor. apparently, when the ignition is too cold, the grease begins to harden, causing the switch to be unable to make proper contact. this makes the car think someone is trying to steal it, so the security system kicks in and stops gas flow for up to 15 minutes. after that period of time, the security system resets and you can once again attempt to start the vehicle. however, if the grease has not warmed up enough by the, the whole thing starts over again. i had the switch replaced and everything was fine until today. the switch is again going bad. my husband had to be to court this afternoon and was unable to start the car. this time we had to wait and try again 3 times, wasting 45 minutes. at least this time it was only time that was wasted. last time it could have been a major safety issue. my baby could've been exposed to the cold for too long with serious consequences. not only that, but i could have been hit by other cars if i hadn't been able to move it out of the way. now that it has happened a second time to our vehicle, i did some research online and have seen that this problem happens quite regularly and that saturn has refused to do anything about it. please see: http://www.autoweb.com/content/research/forums/index.cfm/action/posts/fid/5610 for more complaints. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 71000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 18, 2007.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:ANTI-THEFT CONTROLLER . i have a 2003 saturn ion which i purchased new from the dealer. when it gets cold outside (usually at or below 32 degrees) the car intermittently fails to start. the passlock system activates, preventing the car from starting, because the ignition switch fails to recognize that the proper key is in the ignition. gm has issued a technical advisory (# 04-08-45-005d) dated 15 mar 2006 identifying the ignition switch as the cause of this problem. the saturn dealership confirmed that the ignition switch was the cause of the passlock malfunction on my car and informed me that it would cost $250.00 to replace the ignition switch. in performance of my duties as a federal officer i rely on my vehicle to start when i need it to. i am often dispatched to remote areas in inclement weather to assist the public. having a vehicle that will not start because of a recognized defective ignition switch is unacceptable; being told that i have to pay for repairs because of a manufacturing defect is insulting. the faulty ignition switch is not only a safety concern of mine, it impacts the safety and security of the american public that i have sworn to protect. finally it is a safety concern for every saturn ion owner who depends on their car to start in 30 degree weather when there is no other warm environment available..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AZ52F33Z.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 16, 2008.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . i regrettably own a 2003 saturn ion 2 sedan. several times, when temperatures are below freezing, the car fails to start. after speaking to the service manager at the local dealership and doing extensive online research about the problem i have found that it stems from a faulty design in the ignition switch. the switch leaks lubricant onto the wires in the ignition system. when it is cold enough for the lubricant to freeze, it impedes the signal required to override the passlock security system (standard on my car) and prevents the car from starting. saturn will replace the ignition switch (at the cost of the owner if the vehicle is not under manufacturer's warranty, about $300 to $400). the new switches will inevitably have the same problem, after they leak the lubricant. saturn knows of the problem and has published technical service bulletin #040845005. they, however, refuse to admit responsibility and devise a reliable remedy to the problem. meanwhile, we are all freezing in the cold weather while we wait for our cars to start. i believe saturn is criminally negligent in this respect. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 42750 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 08, 2007.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . when it is very cold outside my 2003 saturn ion would not start. i took it to a mechanic which said he couldn't figure it out but would replace the started and solenoid which happened. again 2 days later, no start, i took it to a different mechanic which ran tests on it and said he couldn't figure it out, but since my battery was 5 years old, maybe i should replace that which i did. then 4 days later, the care wouldn't start again, again i take it to yet another mechanic which runs a series of different tests on it and says everything is good, no explanation for the no starts. finally after much frustration i was online doing some research about my car to discover a number of complaints about both the 2003-2004 saturn ion's having this ignition start problem and yet the manufacturer should have recalled it, yet hasn't and so while the ion owner like myself is stranded here and there and missing days of work due to inoperable on one's purchased vehicle, and paying towing costs, repair bills, testing costs, etc...saturn all along knew the problem. when i finally called saturn and told them of the problem, took the car in and with hours, had a new ignition switch and low and behold yep that was the problem to the tune of $179.00. i think if saturn knew this was a problem, it should have been recalled and fixed on saturn's tab, not mine the consumer. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 10, 2007.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . everytime the weather is a bit cold, my saturn ion 2003 will not start. i took it to a local auto mechanic shop and they told me that it was a typical and unfair problem for the saturn ion owners. the also told me they do the same job on these same cars approximately 15 cars/times per week. the explanation they gave was that the ignition switch need it to be replaced. then i took it to my saturn dealership and they said the exact same thing: "the ignition switch needs to be replaced because it is causing the passlock (security) system to think the car is being stolen and shuts the starter off." he also said it was really common to replace the ignition switches every winter because those kinds of cars have been having that same problem regardless what the year model they are. i also asked them how many cars (per week) they had to fix due to this same problem and they told me it varied, but it was always between 10 and 25 cars per week. also they said that previous year the weather was so cold and the saturn ions were not starting, that in just a week they had 40-something cars come in to get fix for the same problem. they told they would fix it for me but i would have to pay for everything. i refused to pay because it was not my fault, and i'm assuming people are paying to for something that is not even their fault. i also called saturn and the customer care representative at saturn said that saturn does not have a recommendation for this problem at this time. the last thing i did was a research on the web about this problem and i found many websites, blogs and forums that address the problem as a factory default from saturn. i read people's comments and they all said they had the same problem with their saturn ions and that saturn did want to admit it was a problem of them. it appears as if no one was to take responsibility and the ones paying for this are the customers. this is not fair. *tr.Mileage was 48 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 10, 2008.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with VISIBILITY . the windshield wiper arm component on my 2003 saturn ion (which connects the right and left wipers) has plastic parts that will snap in cold weather, rendering at least the left windshield wiper inoperative. this could have created an extremely hazardous condition, especially during a snow or ice storm. the repair shop told us that the component arm had to be on back order, and it would take two weeks to get a replacement. it actually took four weeks, which leads me to believe that the problem is not an isolated one. the replacement, which cost $162.00 without labor, also has plastic components. the windshield wipers sit below the part on the windshield where the defroster vents are aimed, causing the wipers to stay frozen on the windshield even after the defroster is turned on. when the wipers are turned on, the strain on the arm component (caused when the frozen wiper blades stay stuck on the windshield) causes the plastic part to snap, rendering at least the left wiper inoperative. *tr.Mileage was 49000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 16, 2009.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . during every cold season since the purchase of 2003 saturn ion, there is a problem with starting the vehicle in cold weather (usually when below 25 deg f). this seems to be an intermittent problem. how the problem manifests is as follows: in cold weather, when trying to start the vehicle, engine frequently (at least 25% of the time) will not "catch" and run- just turns over. if immediately trying to start it again after a first failed start, engine turns over slowly and dies (similar to dead battery symptom, however battery has been checked and found to be ok). after letting the car sit for 5 minutes after a failed attempt, trying again may result in a moment of what appears to be fuel getting to the engine, and more engine turning, however engine stalls. after repeated waiting and start re-attempts (often 5- 10 times, and an elapsed period of time of 30- 60 minutes of re-attempts, the engine will frequently start and remain started. however the inconvenience of a 30-60 minute delay is disconcerting, and on some cold mornings, repeated failed attempts causes battery to drain and need for "jump starting" the car, at owner expense and inconvenience. an internet search on 2003 saturn ion cold starting problem indicates a pervasive and systematic problem in ignition switch design, however saturn has not yet acknowledged this design flaw in a formal recall. today, repairs have to be made at owner expense ($200-300 replacement ignition switch seems to be the feedback). see website http://www.carsurvey.org/viewcomments_review_97727.html my request of the nhtsa is that you urge saturn to issue a formal recall for this problem immediately. please respond with your inputs and intended approach on this situation. also, if you are aware of other agencies that i should contact about this problem, i would greatly appreciate. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 75300 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2008.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i purchased a used 2003 saturn ion level 1 in april of 2006. beginning this winter (approximately early december 2008), my car did not start. initially, it would simply click, but all electrical was working properly, and there was no drain of power upon attempting to start the car. a few hours later, my husband tried to start it, and it turned over as if there was no problem present. since then, it has very randomly done the same thing - first try, nothing but electrical comes on, but after waiting anywhere from 5 - 30 minutes, the car will start only to die immediately, and then finally, the engine will turn over, and the car will run perfectly. this winter has been brutally cold, and i have a young son. luckily, he has never been with me when i have encountered this issue while away from home - sitting in a non-running vehicle for up to half an hour in below-zero temperatures is not only dangerous to me, but *extremely* dangerous for him. i have even had occurrences of this when stopping at the store for a mere 10 minutes (after my car started perfectly to get there), only to come out and find my car completely useless. this particular night the temperature was literally 10-below-zero), and it took me a solid half hour to get it started again. i have discovered countless complaints regarding duplicate situations online from many, many ion owners, as well as other models of saturns. the fact that saturn has not issued a recall for what is apparently remedied by replacing the ignition assembly and housing appall me, even though they address it as "not being a safety issue." when taking into consideration that i, as well as thousands of other ion owners, could be left stranded far from any help or means to attain assistance, at any random time of day or location, in even the absolute worst of weather conditions makes me disagree completely with the assumption that it does not impact the safety of saturn owners and their families. it deserves a recall. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 02, 2009.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i was driving my 2003 saturn ion2 with 4 cyl and vti transmission with 71,000 miles to work and it felt like it went into neutral and then slowed to a stop. i was almost rear-ended and was stranded on a busy highway. it turns out my vti transmission is defective, there is a class action law suit against gm for it, and it is following the settlement before it has been ruled upon by the judge. they are covering 75% of the repair because i am the second owner. if i was the original owner, they would have covered 100%. i purchased the car from the dealer where it was originally sold and it was a certified used car. i was having transmission noises after i bought the car and in requesting the service records, i found out that the previous owner had transmission problems and work was done for them. i brought the car in and they also did a repair on my transmission (this was prior to it having 36,000 miles and was still covered under the factory warranty). i'm trying to figure out why there has not been a recall on this transmission when all you have to do is do a google search for saturn vti transmission problems and you will find thousands of people that have had problems. the 75% repair still leaves me paying $1,150 and my car is worth very little because all the car companies know about the problem, which has devalued the car. the worst part of this is that they are putting in the very same defective transmission and again the google search reveals they go bad again and again and again. can the nhtsa please help me and the thousands of other saturn owners with this problem? this transmission needs to be recalled. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 71000 miles.

Saturn Ion 2003 Electrical System Ignition Switch Review #10277478

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . there is an issue that affects a sensor in the ignition switch. this causes the car to lock up because it is getting a false signal that the car is being stolen. this is a known issue that affects the car's "passlock" system and i think it needs to be recalled. this happens when (1) the temperature is below 0 degrees c over night or an extended time period. (2) the only way to solve the problem is to keep replacing the ignition switch when it goes bad. attached below is taken from another owner of the saturn ion. "the problem with the ion not starting in many cases is due to a poorly designed anti theft system. the system looks for the presence of the key in the lock when the ignition key is turned. the system looks for a low resistance, but not zero ohms, and can be trained to look for a specific value. if it does not find what it is looking for, the car will not start. one solution is to change the switch. anyone that can use a wrench and screw driver can do this. the switch costs about $30. the problem, is that they don't last too long, sometimes less than a year. a simple solution i found elsewhere, is to cut the white wire from the ignition switch while the engine is running. leave enough length after the switch so it can be spliced back together. i did this today, it was easy, and seems to work. it does give you a service warning. another option, is to install a bypass device that is designed for remote starters. another option, which is simpler, and depending on where you live (i haven't tested this) is to leave the key in the ignition all the time. use a second key to lock the doors" a short search of saturn ions not starting in cold weather will show thousands of people who have experienced the exact same problem. why this issue has not been dealt with is a mystery. *tr.Mileage was 20000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 18, 2009.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i'm having the same issues that a lot of ion owners are having. car will not start when it is cold and the passlock system kicks in. once this kicks in you have to leave the key in the accessories position for 10 minutes, passlock will then shut off and you can retry.if it does not start you have to wait another 10 minutes to try and start. supposedly this is because of grease that is in the ignition switch. this grease freezes up when cold. it does seem to help if you warm up the ignition switch with a hair dryer or lighter.i don't know why gm does not recall this. they are passing their screw up onto the consumer. this problem has left many people stranded. it is just a matter of time till some one is in a really bad situation because of this. 'sorry your having a heart attack maybe i can start the car in another 10 minutes'. i wouldn't be surprised if someone froze to death because of this. at the very least i know people have missed many hours of work. anyways, i am going to replace the ignition switch to see if this works. i already bought a remote start which bypasses the passlock when remote start but no one will install this on a manual car. *tr.Mileage was 50000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2010.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i have a 2003 saturn ion and it has the same starting problems reported extensively on this website. on cold days, the car will not start at times. it always seems to happen at the most importune times and locations. when this happens, there is no noise and no cranking sound when i turn the ignition key on. however, when i try to start the car about 5 to 15 minutes later, it starts without any problem. i replaced the battery, but it did not make any difference. the alternator checks out fine. i believe the problem is a faulty ignition module, but that is a guess on my part based on the numerous online complaints by other saturn owners. there is only one authorized saturn dealer/service facility left in the houston. the technician there told me he has serviced numerous saturns with the same exact problem and that replacing the ignition module seems to fix the problem, although not in every case. he said that gm has not issued a bulletin or recalled saturns to repair the units. gm's denial of a potentially lethal problem is not unlike that of toyota in addressing stuck accelerators and braking problems. maybe gm does not care because it is closing down its saturn division. i can see where saturn owners, who are unaware of the extent of the starting problem, wind up having their batteries, alternators and other components replaced at enormous cost and inconvenience before saturn suggests replacing the ignition unit. this is a situation that is ripe for exploitation because the problem is intermittent. the national transportation safety board needs to weigh in on this safety issue and not wait for people to get hurt. *tr .Mileage was 30000 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 24, 2011.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . the issue is in connection with a 2003 saturn ion. recently, while driving, there appears to be a click coming from the front left side of the car, most likely coming from the fuse box. immediately following the click, there is three dings followed by a message on the dash "pwr str". after this has occurred, the vehicle loses its power steering abilities, causing significant more force to be used when operating the vehicle. typically this is fine when on a straight road but often this is not the case as i drive on roads with sharp curves leading to the risk of significant danger if i was to lose power steering while taking one of these turns. if the car is turned off while in motion and then turned on again the power steering does begin to work again although often the events occur again and the car loses power steering. *tr.Mileage was 106750 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Feb 06, 2012.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with VISIBILITY . . i was driving south on i-15 between cedar city and st. george utah.around 4:00 pm when i drove into a very heavy rain storm, i turned on the windshield wipers to clear the windshield. at which point the wipers went up and then quite. the driver side wiper went all the way to the left side of the windshield and stopped. the passenger side worked for a few minutes and then quite i had to pull over stop and water for the rain storm to pass over. upon later inspection i found that the plastic housing that holds the wiper mounts to the main assembly had broken away from both sides causing the wipers to quit working. since the car was out of warranty i went down to stephen wade chevrolet and purchased a new wiper motor module assembly. which cost me $196,00. while i was replacing this wiper module assembly i noticed that the new wiper motor module assembly has no plastic parts.the unit was solid metal. which should have been done in the first place to avoid this very serious safety issue. i did write saturn a letter and sent pictures as well showing them the problem this problem happens over a long period of time as hot and cold weather causes the plastic to get brittle and then brake. i am very concerned about the publics safety and advised saturn that i felt they should seriously consider issuing a recall and replace any of these vehicles which may have these plastic part installed on them. i have been driving for many years. as experienced driver i knew what to do. but for a younger or elder driver i really think this situation could have turned out very bad. let's get something done before someone gets hurt or even worse killed. i just don't feel that saturn will do anything more about this safety issue. so i hope you will. thanks for taking the time to read this letter and for your consideration, cooporation and concerns. *tr .Mileage was 79501 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 18, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . when i bought my car it wouldn't start, the dealer said it was because it sat for a long time. this problemhas been constantly been an issue since in extreme weather. i was told during one shop inspection it was electrical and they have seen a lot of this but don't know what causes it. with this case it has shut my radio on and off and a big issue that i have is when i am stopped with my foot on my brake the engine will rev up and jerk forward. this happens in the city when i'm driving at slower speeds. i've had to run off the road to avoid hitting people, the only thing that saves me from hitting anyone at lights or signs is my safety gap between me and a front car. i've been late for work, ruined vacations, been stranded with an infant in 100 degree weather, and wasted a lot of money trying to find the problems. i bought it new and have heard every excuse for the problems...you guys have finally stepped in on one of the problems we have been having now gm needs to answer the rest. i'm not the only one with these problems. if you do a search online you can pull up 100s of issues exactly the same. i have all my receipts when i took it onto saturn dealers. now i have doors that don't seal but i'm sure this is because it's old or other excuses. i had to buy another car because my kids aren't safe in it. i can't even have a clean conscious trading it in so i still am stuck with it. i have complained about this issue before but no one listens. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60 miles.

SATURN ION 2003 car safety problem was reported on Oct 18, 2003.SATURN ION 2003, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ENGINE . when i bought my car it wouldn't start, the dealer said it was because it sat for a long time. this problemhas been constantly been an issue since in extreme weather. i was told during one shop inspection it was electrical and they have seen a lot of this but don't know what causes it. with this case it has shut my radio on and off and a big issue that i have is when i am stopped with my foot on my brake the engine will rev up and jerk forward. this happens in the city when i'm driving at slower speeds. i've had to run off the road to avoid hitting people, the only thing that saves me from hitting anyone at lights or signs is my safety gap between me and a front car. i've been late for work, ruined vacations, been stranded with an infant in 100 degree weather, and wasted a lot of money trying to find the problems. i bought it new and have heard every excuse for the problems...you guys have finally stepped in on one of the problems we have been having now gm needs to answer the rest. i'm not the only one with these problems. if you do a search online you can pull up 100s of issues exactly the same. i have all my receipts when i took it onto saturn dealers. now i have doors that don't seal but i'm sure this is because it's old or other excuses. i had to buy another car because my kids aren't safe in it. i can't even have a clean conscious trading it in so i still am stuck with it. i have complained about this issue before but no one listens. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60 miles.
