SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 20, 2004.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . usually i charge my cell phone at home overnight. but on monday 9/20/04 i had forgotten to charge the phone and used the cell phone charger in my new 2004 saturn ion 2 sedan. i noticed that my turn signal indicator was flashing quickly. i stopped to check and found that the front turn signals were not working and the normal daytime running lights were not working. i went to the local saturn dealer. he said i needed upgraded resistors and capacitors to handle my cell phone charger. this was done under warrantee in 2 hours. from research on the internet bulletin boards i found that this problem with the electrical system happens with some but not all cell phone chargers. the saturn factory recognized the problem and put in the better resistors and capacitors to handle cell phone chargers in cars made after 5 months ago. this is a potential safety problem if people continue to drive with non working front turn signals, it could lead to an accident. i also wonder if people with the old electrical system might suffer damage to their electrical system with cell phone charges over time which could lead to a failure of the electrical system. in my case i immediately recognized the problem because my lights stopped working. what about someone who's cell phone charger doesn't turn off the lights but just strains the electrical system leading to electrical system failures. *ak .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 2000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 22, 2005.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . friday there was a snowfall. saturday morning, i drove my car on the highway and encountered severe difficulty handling the steering of the car. as i approached 40 miles per hour on the highway, the steering wheel began to shake violently. i could not get off the highway, so i tried to cope by speeding up and slowing down. three times, i almost crashed - twice into other cars, once into the highway barrier. the faster i went, the more violent the shaking. i was travelling from the university avenue entrance to 280 to 94 west to the 35w south. i got off at the first exit i could on 35w. the problem continued as i drove on the city streets. on tuesday i called saturn to have them fix my car. they informed me there were approximately 100 calls of this kind this weekend and that this was a result of snow getting into where the tire-wheel is. it was suggested i go to a car wash and thaw out the snow and was told they'd be happy to do that for me. part of why i chose this car is because they informed me that it has computerized handling that would facilitate my driving. obviously, i am dissatisfied. when the snow melted off, the car drove well. however, i live in mn, where there is snow half of the year. i was not informed that my car would have this happen. i cannot handle the car when the steering wheel shakes violently. i feel unsafe driving this car. i don't want it anymore. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 5000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 21, 2005.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with SEATS:MID/REAR ASSEMBLY . the driver of the car in front of me stopped suddenly to avoid hitting the car in front of her, and i rear ended her. it was a minor accident - only going approximately 30 mph - so minor that the airbags didn't deploy. both of my rear seats, however, came unlatched and flew forward, pushing my daughter's car seat into the rear of the passenger front seat, even with the seat belt being looped through the shoulder harness of the car seat. thankfully, she was not in the car at the time. i called saturn to report it. they spoke with the collision center where my car is being repaired, and were told that they couldn't find anything broken that could be fixed. the collision center also told them that they tried to get the seats unlatched by pulling on them from the front and by trying to kick them from inside the trunk, neither of which simulates what would happen in an actual car accident, with that kind of inertia. the person who inspected my car told me that it's possible that something in the trunk unlatched the locks during the accident. saturn told me there is nothing they can do. i even spoke with a supervisor. i even asked if they could somehow install a better lock to make sure the seats wouldn't unlatch. they told me over and over that there is nothing they can do because nothing is broken. but something is obviously wrong for the seats to have come unlatched. at this time, i still feel that my rear seats are unsafe and have not gotten my car back from the collision center. *jb.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12800 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 05, 2005.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . 2004 saturn ion suddenly stalled while driving with my family. this happened on 8/5/05 and 8/20/05. everything died for no apparent reason, which made it difficult to maneuver the vehicle without power steering in traffic. when i came to a safe stop with the stalled vehicle i pulled out the ignition key and re-entered it. the car then started just fine and there were no stalling issues since then. the problem i foresee is the fact that someone could get hurt and get in a serious accident while trying to control a vehicle without power in traffic. also, as a reaction to the engine stall, someone might try to remove the ignition key while in motion and accidentally lock the steering wheel, which could be lethal. i also find it irritating that you would not expect a 10 month old car with approx. 8000 miles on the odometer to stall without warning (i.e. no engine noise, no check engine light, full tank of gas..etc.) while cruising along. i also believe the dealership/manufacturer will have a hard time to duplicate the problem, because the engine stall happened for no apparent reason and the car runs fine otherwise. this is why i have not yet reported the incidents to the dealership, because it would be a waste of time until more ion owners report this issue to you folks. however, i just wanted to get the word out. i looks like my ion is not the only saturn ion with this kind of problem according to the already existing car stalling complaints. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 7500 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 28, 2006.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with VISIBILITY:REARVIEW MIRRORS/DEVICES:EXTERIOR . no specific accident has occurred but numerous close calls have occurred as a result of what apparently is a design flaw. the driver-side outside rear-view mirror cannot be adjusted (electrically or manually) over the angle ranges needed for safe driving and always available on previously owned vehicles. the mirror can be adjusted so that the driver can see well back into the vehicle (which is worthless) and only outwardly to the point that the left side of the car is still visible. adjustment to allow visibility other than straight back is not possible. the service person said that a physical stop inside the housing prevented any movement further out and there was nothing that could be done. entering a freeway this way is very hazardous since the on-coming traffic in the near lane cannot be seen. in an attempt to show the service person how it should work we went to another model of saturn and the results were exactly the same indicating that (at least) more than one model of saturn has this same visibility problem. *nm.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AL54F64Z.

Saturn Ion 2004 Latches/locks/linkages Hood Latch Review #10163669

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 23, 2006.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH . my daughter has a 2004 saturn ion coupe. she is a new driver and has told me an several occasions that the hood on her vehicle keeps opening by accident. i asked if it was opening all the or just part of the way. she said just popping up part of the way and she has to open it from the front and close it completely. i asked her to let me know the next time it happened and she did. i took a look and saw it had released and was only being held shut by the secondary safety latch. when i looked at the location of the hood release i noted it was located very close to the floor on the driver's left. when i tested it, the release activate very easily. the position of the release is right next to the driver's foot and is likely being activated when the foot moves around or when the driver is getting out of the car. in fact, i drove her car last week and had the hood accidentally release 3 times. one time i noticed when i was on the expressway traveling at highway speeds. this condition could easily lead to a hood blowing up and off while driving if the secondary safety latch fails. this could cause a catastrophic incident. i called saturn customer service, explained my concern, and was basically treated as if i was crazy. i asked for my concern to be sent to the product design and safety group for review and asked for a follow up call. they told me "that's the way the car is designed and no one would be getting back with me." *jb.Saturn Ion 2004 problem was reported in WEST BLOOMFIELD, MI.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 30, 2006.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION . i had a problem with my 2004 saturn ion not starting a few times last winter i thought it was related to water in the fuel or a battery problem and after taking steps to fix any defects with either i had no further problem with my car until the first cold day this winter. it has in the last month failed to start at least 6 times, all on cold mornings. it will eventually start after trying for about 10 minutes. i am no longer under warranty so i did some research before calling the dealer and found other owners with the exact same problem. i then called the dealership where i purchased the car and although they knew of the problem, they were still going to charge me diagnostic fees if i brought in my car. i contacted the saturn corporation to find out why that have not issued a recall and did not get an answer to my question. i am presenting this as a safety problem for a few reasons. it is not safe to be sitting in your car in freezing temperatures for as long as it takes to eventually start. you can't plan ahead for emergencies. most importantly, i have automatic locks that unlock everytime you remove the key and the car will not even turn over if i don't remove the key in between each attempt. i do not feel safe sitting in my car for 10-15 minutes, late at night, after work in a dark parking lot without locked doors, and i don't want anything to happen to my family or anyone else's just because their car wasn't built properly. *nm .Mileage was 40000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 08, 2007.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . i own a 2004 saturn ion 3. i purchased this feb, 2006. december of 2006 my car failed to start. i called for help and by the time it arrived, the car started on its own. on feb 7th, 2007, the car failed to start again. it did not seem like a battery failure. i found the tsb 040845005 online. i called corporate saturn customer service and they "logged my complaint". they were not very helpful and simply directed me to call the local dealer. i called the local dealership service manager and explained the situation. i took the car in and they ran diagnostics. the issue was indeed the same issue in the tsb, which is ignition switch failure. because they need to replace the ignition switch, they also need to reset the passlock. i was told that this would cost me $291.00. i was also told that they could not give me any kind of a break on the cost of replacement as those type of decisions were made on a case by case basis and per the service manager "you have over 40,000 miles on the car" (i have 30,700 and have owned the car just short of 12 months), so they cannot provide me with any assistance. i am very disappointed in this as saturns are supposed to be reliable and this is a known part failure. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 30700 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2007.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . on 4 occasions now, when i leave work at around midnight in frigid weather, i attempt to start my 2004 saturn ion (manufactured in late 2003), and the starter will turn over approximately 1 or 2 revolutions, then stop. immediate subsequent attempts to start simply result in the "click" of the ignition switch. if i wait about 5 to 10 minutes, it will turn over once or twice again, one time, then i must wait another 5-10 minutes before the starter will turn over again. according to a website i was reading, this is a common problem, and is usually due to a defect in the ignition pass lock switch, an antitheft system designed to cut off fuel supply, and some sort of grease that freezes. so far, jump-starts seem to help...but according to that website, simply attempting start, waiting 10 minutes, attempting again, waiting for 10 minutes, and trying again, eventually will start the car. perhaps the time it takes to connect jumper cables is enough to "reset" this pass-lock system. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 39500 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 29, 2007.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with SUSPENSION:AUTOMATIC STABILITY CONTROL (ASC) . since i purchased 2004 saturn ion iii quad coupe in november 2004 i have complained to the dealer that the vehicle drifted to the left. the faster the vehicle was driven the worst it drifted. at highway speeds one must constantly steer the car to the right to keep the vehicle going in a straight line. the dealer maintained the alignment was fine, and that the pull was the result of radial tire drift . not satisfied , i paid to have the alignment checked by an outside vendor. they corrected a minor problem that had no effect on the drifting problem. since the tires were not wearing oddly i put up with the drift until recently when i had to change the tires, but the drifting continued. i took the vehicle back to the dealer, who suggested the vehicle needed an alignment. the alignment was out very slightly. after the repair was completed the car still drifted. i complained, and was told the dealer could not replicate the problem. i had the dealer accompany me on a test drive, and they admitted the vehicle still drifted. the regional engineer for saturn examined the car, and responded at this time they could not repair the car. by design there was a limited amount of adjustment they could make to the car to compensate for the problem. they have reached that limit, and deemed this a manufacturing problem. they took several other ions out for test drives. every one they drove behaved in the same manner. so as far as they are concerned my vehicle is operating within normal parameters. i have asked that they put this in writing which they have agreed to do. i am contacting the nhtsa because i believe this is an endemic problem to the vehicle and its design, and represents a serious safety issue. if you become distracted in this vehicle at highway speed you can very easily find yourself in the next lane. could someone please look into this before some is hurt or killed. by the way saturn's solution keep a good grip on the steering wheel. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 07, 2007.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . intermittently power steering warning light would appear on dash and power steering would stop working. this happened once one day and twice the second day when i called for an appointment with the service department of the dealer. the car is 4 years old and is no longer under warranty. the dealer replaced the electric power steering assembly at a cost of approximately $1200. when i was told that this just "sometimes happens" by the dealership, i could not understand why it was not considered a serious defect and recalled. i decided to look on the internet and found that it happens to saturn ions as well as other general motors vehicles. in my opinion, a 4 year old car should not just suddenly lose power steering. this could have resulted in tragedy. suppose a driver has to swerve to avoid an obstacle and the power steering fails at that moment. this is something which i believe gm is aware of and is choosing not to warn people about. i intend to make my voice heard in as many forums as possible. this is a very serious problem and i sincerely hope it can be addressed before even one person loses their life. *tr.Mileage was 76780 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 07, 2008.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM . failure of the electric power steering system: i have owned my 2004 saturn ion since new and it has approximately 52,000 miles on it. i noticed about 2 months ago, the power steering system will turn off randomly. it started to happen very infrequently, less than once a day. now it happens many times in one trip. if i turn the ignition off and restart the car, it will work again, notwithstanding another failure. the dealer has quoted me 700 dollars to do the repair work. considering the car only has 52,000 miles on it and many others have experienced this same problem on the ion and other saturn models (from searches of various saturn forums), i find this to be unconscionable that saturn will not recall the item. this could cause a major problem for an unsuspecting person if it turns off in the middle of a cornering turn. the forces required to turn the wheels and the failed steering assist motor are more than expected. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40000 miles.

Saturn Ion 2004 Steering Review #10250617

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2008.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . this has been a rare, sporadically, occurring problem that has plagued the car for over two years. on average about every three months the electric power steering fails while the car is running. in the last four months the incidence has increased to as much as three times per day and about four days per week. the failure occurs at any/all speeds. this obviously results in a sudden, extreme drag on the steering mechanism requiring greatly increased driver effort to turn the steering wheel. quick maneuvers or sharper turns are nearly impossible when the power steering fails. turning the car off and restarting restores the power steering. if this is attempted while the car is being driven, the steering lock could be engaged, resulting in an extremely dangerous condition. the dealer acknowledges no familiarity with this problem or of any bulletins regarding this issue, despite evidence from numerous internet postings by owners with similar complaints. upon my further discussions with service personnel at saturn dealers, they speculate that a roughly $1000 replacement of the steering column assembly, which contains sensors, electronics, and the power steering electric assist motor may solve the problem. to date such replacement has not been pursued due to inconclusive diagnosis and possible high costs. the vehicle in question is a 2004 saturn ion ii, purchased new. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i own a 2004 saturn ion. it does not start in the cold weather (around 36 degrees f and below). i have replaced the starter and two months ago i bought a new battery. my mechanic assured me the battery is top of the line and guaranteed to start in cold weather. however, it did not start yesterday in 30 degree weather. all lights turn on but car does not crank. does not even make noise. i have researched this through various discussion boards and most of them agree that there is a faulty switch in the ignition that leaks lubricant. when the lubricant freezes, the passlock anti theft alarm does not get it's electrical signal so it activates and prohibits fuel from being used so the car does not start. i take very good care of my car, but i have spent a lot of time and money trying to figure out what is wrong in this situation. if this is the case of a faulty switch, saturn / gm should be held liable and forced to do a recall with an updated switch design. for the amount that cars cost today manufacturers should not be allowed to put out junk parts and expect consumers to sit back and take it. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 126000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2008.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH . after owning my 2004 saturn ion for 8 months, it developed a random starting problem. sometimes the car would start normally and others not at all. i replaced the battery, starter, and ignition switch. the dealership where i bought the ignition switch said it is common to need to replace the switch when the weather gets cold. after all of those new parts the problem persisted. i researched on the internet and found a forum where dozens of other ion owners where having similar problems. the only remedy that seemed to "fix" the problem was to disable the vehicles anti-theft system by cutting the proper wire from the ignition switch while the car is running. this allows the car to start every time, but also gives an error message about the disabled system. this is clearly a common problem that occurs for ion owners in cold weather. *tr.Mileage was 53000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2006.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . car will sporadically not start in cold weather. starts fine in warm season. waiting 10 minutes after initial try will usually remedy this. this usually happens 5 times a week and normally in the morning. this has been a problem since the purchase of the vehicle. the starter and batter has been replaced with no positive results. i have done internet research and found hundreds of others with the same problem. people seem to believe it is a problem with the pass-lock system being temperamental. the electrical system is sensitive to temperature and condensation. the cold start triggers an approximate 10 minute wait time before the system is reset and the car will not turn over until after that period. i have read where people have disabled the pass lock system to remedy this with good results. i am not comfortable with paying a mechanic to disengage the system or doing this myself and feel that saturn should fix the problem. since this is such a sporadic and temperamental problem it would be difficult for a mechanic to diagnose.... hence the dozens of accounts of people replacing starters and batteries with no lasting results. i have, with mixed results, that heating the ignition key before the initial start will cause a better connection. i am going to try this method. overall this is just a ridiculous issue and i'm tired of being late for work and starting my car 10 to 20 minutes before leaving my car unattended while getting ready. i am hoping this complaint will help fix the problem for me and the others experiencing such strong dissatisfaction with their saturn vehicles. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1G8AZ52F84Z.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . my vehicle on cold days will not reliably start. turn key, all lights and indicators work but start function is electronically terminated within 1 second of engagement. the car will start after waiting for ten to twenty minutes as if nothing was wrong. after many trips to the mechanic (dealer and non) i have found many such reports on-line indicating a faulty ignition switch which fails in cold weather. the time delay in starting appears to be some type of interaction with the theft deterrent system. i will now pay to have this part replaced but suspect, as many have reported, that this will correct the issue for one or two years before it occurs again (as many others have also reported). *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 75000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i have a 2004 saturn ion. in cold weather the dielectric lubrication freezes and interferes with the security system - making the vehicle unable to start. this problem occurs approximately 50% of the time when the temperature drops below freezing - more frequently with even colder temperatures. the problem is often remedied by waiting for 10 - 30 minutes until the security system resets itself and then trying to start the vehicle again. i found a lot of complaints by consumers with the same issue by searching google. i also spoke with a saturn dealership service department. the person i spoke with at the saturn service department said he was very familiar with the problem and verified the diagnosis i listed above (dielectric lubrication freezing resulting the security system lockdown) but said there were no related recalls. i know three people with saturn ions and they all have the exact same problem. two of the owners i know took the vehicle in to saturn dealerships for repair and they replaced the starter, a three-hundred dollar procedure which did not fix the problem. i hope you can look into issuing a recall on this issue because based on personal sources, a saturn dealer, and google searches, it seems to be a very common problem. also, living in minnesota the temperatures can get dangerously low - where being left stranded outside for 30 minutes without a heat source can result in frostbite, hypothermia, and even death. thank you. *tr.1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 23, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . car will not start at times , after letting it sit for about 10 mins after cranking the key a few times, it will start right up. seems to be a common issue with this year make and model, something to do with a white wire that is part of a plug containing a bunch of wires that plug in underneath the steering column. the problem seems to be more likely to happen when its damp or raining outside. and will always fix itself if you let the car sit for about 10 mins before trying to crank it again. car has a new battery, seems to be a lot of posts about this issue on bulletin boards on line. seems like cutting the white wire seems to fix the issue every time. *tr.Mileage was 48000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 25, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . i drive a 2004 saturn ion. about two months ago my power steering started to go out at random times, however, when i would turn the car off and then back on it would be fine. i did bring it in to a mechanic and had it looked at. he found no error codes and no duplicate of the problem because it was at random times. a couple weeks ago it started to turn off a couple times a day. i finally brought it in again when it turned off on me on the freeway and i almost crashed when a big rig swerved. my mechanic was able to verify there was an issue with the power steering column & modular. that part was $560.53 (not including labor). further research into this part on my car with the help of my mechanic showed that this is a very common issue with my saturn make. however, the story does not end here. after replacement of this part my mechanic discovered the cause for the steering breaking. the motor in this column piece fries the whole modular. the replacement part for this was another $175.00. the saturn factory has plenty of steering columns in stock however because of the increase in demand for the replacement of the motor, the part was on back order for a couple of weeks. yes the whole process was frustrating and expensive but having power steering go out unexpectedly is very dangerous. someone should not have to die or be injured in an accident before a safety recall is forced upon saturn. *tr.Mileage was 57807 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . experiencing continuous failure of the power steering in my '04 saturn ion. steering can lock up at any given time after start up and has done so on an every trip basis for the past 6 months. the dealership's diagnostic didn't find anything, but offered to replace the power steering column for almost $800; which as i have read doesn't guarantee fixing the problem. losing your power steering while driving is a safety issue and i feel that if this issue is prevalent in the ion series, saturn/gm should address it accordingly. *tr.Mileage was 112000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 10, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i was once a loyal general motors customer ¿ that is until gm nearly killed me. i'm the unfortunate owner of a 2004 saturn ion with an ailing transmission the dealership refuses to repair, and i am not alone. in my case, the transmission failure nearly cost me my life. this past saturday, i was attempting to merge from 315 n onto interstate 270 e. exiting the entrance ramp at that interchange is often a hazard under the best conditions. as i accelerated into the right-hand lane of traffic, my car shuttered violently and lost all forward momentum. i swerved back to avoid being rear-ended by the closing traffic on 270 e, nearly sideswiping another vehicle still in the exit lane. i drifted to the side of the road unable to get the transmission to engage. after letting the car rest for a few minutes i tried again to get it into gear, ultimately having to leave it in a parking lot. despite gm agreeing to a class action settlement on april 16, 2009, saturn dealerships have recently been advised to suspend all extended warranty repairs under the agreement. saturn customer service, under direct instruction from gm, has take the position that the agreement was made by gm prior to the declaration of bankruptcy on june 1, 2009 and now has no legal obligation to complete the repairs. gm also failed to notify the 150,000 owners of affected vue and ion models that due to an acknowledged design flaw, their cars might drop in or out of gear, even at high speeds, posing significant danger to operators, passengers and other motorists. how many accidents and injuries have and will occur due to gm's lack of action? lives likely have and will be lost due to this known defect. gm is paying roulette with the lives of its customers and the drivers who share the roads with them. gm has failed to comply with the legal terms of a class action settlement, failed to notify customers of a potentially deadly defect and failed to pay the cost of repairs they agreed in federal district court. *tr.Mileage was 94039 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 04, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . on four different occasions while driving my 2004 saturn ion on the highway, after hitting an unusual bump or dips in the road, i?ve experience a complete shutdown of the car?s systems, including loss of power, loss of steering and any ability to accelerate, brake or navigate the car. the car slows to a complete stop. from my past experience i've learned that the car will need to come to a complete stop and then shifted into park. the car key will then physically need tp be removed and reinsert the key to get the vehicle restarted. (trying to start the car without removing the key will not work.) on all occasions this has presented an extremely dangerous situation as other cars traveling on the highway at speeds of 55-75 mph are forced to maneuver around my stalled vehicle, which does not even have the power or control to be pull off to the side of the road. the car was taken to the saturn dealership on october 17, 2007 after the first 3 incidents, however diagnostic tests could not identify or replicate the problem. the dealership adjusted a fuse box in the under carriage of the car. but could not neither assure me the problem was resolved, or would not happen again. the situation recurred recently on oct 4, 2009 while on interstate 95. the severity of the situation could have easily resulted in a fatal accident as i sat stranded in the fast-lane of the highway. the car is presently at another saturn dealership where they again say they are unable to identify or replicate the problem. i am no longer confident in the safety of this vehicle and seek the nhtsa assistance in resolving the matter. *tr.Mileage was 42000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 23, 2009.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i purchases a 2004 saturn ion in 2006. in october of 2007, my vehicle would not start for no apparent reason. after waiting about 15 minutes, my vehicle started and ran normally. this happened again about 3 days later while i was visiting relatives 2 hours from my home which detained me on my trip back home. i took my vehicle to the saturn dealership in harrisburg, pa to have it checked. i was told that the problem was the ignition switch which needed to be replaced (they replaced it). two years later in december, 2009 the problem occurred again, this time on my way to work on an extremely cold winter morning. i took the vehicle to the saturn dealership again and was told that i would need another ignition switch to replace the one they had replaced 2 years earlier. after reading about so many other complaints and dangerous situations that saturn owners have gotten into because of failing ignition switches, it is clear that there is a defect in these parts. i have read about countless situations where people were unable to turn their cars off! an ignition switch should not go bad every 2 years. this is not a high wear and tear part. a car should be able to turn on and off a large number of times without fail. a car that fails to turn off is an enormous safety issue. if you leave the car unattended and turned on, someone could be hurt or killed. not being able to start a car is also a dangerous especially when it happens in bitterly cold weather. saturn/gm is doing nothing to get these unsafe vehicle off the roads to be fixed. they are not taking responsibility for the countless number of ignition switch problems that saturn owners are experiencing. gm has a history of ignition switch failures and should stand behind their product by offering a recall of the defective part and replacing it. *tr.Mileage was 76176 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 30, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . my wife owns a 2004 saturn ion, only 50,000 miles. for about 3 years there has been an off and on problem with the power steering light coming on and the power steering stops working- once you turn car off and back on it starts working again momentarily- this is an electrical system. i've replaced the fuses and that did not correct the problem. currently the power steering will cut out at least a few times a week if not a few times a driving trip and it is getting to be very unsafe. if the power steering were to cut out on the free way during a sharp turn, i'm very concerned my 105 lb. wife could lose control and seriously hurt herself or others. i have read numerous message boards and this is a problem that saturn is aware of and is unwilling to do a recall- they just want to make more $$ buy charging over $1,000 to replace the steering column which in a lot of cases it sounds as if it could be a cheaper fix than what saturn wants to charge consumer for. bottom line is that a car with only 50,000 miles should not have this problem and saturn should be liable and correct these safety issues. what will it take for them a few deaths before they realize this needs to be corrected? *tr.Mileage was 30000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Feb 10, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . our 4 cylinder 2004 saturn ion has had unintended sudden acceleration problems for several years. i am a patent holding software and hardware engineer and i can state absolutely after observing the behavior over at least 4 years that this is a software issue and/or a sensor issue and not a sticking mechanical control. it is not necessary to even touch or move the accelerator pedal in order for this to occur. under certain conditions of temperature and humidity, either some sensor malfunctions or some connector becomes intermittent or the software misreads something. at startup the engine runs at an unusually high idle (~800 rpm), and as soon as you put it in gear, the car lunges forward or backward hard and you have to put it in neutral to avoid having it run away with you - all this without touching the accelerator pedal. when you put the car in neutral the engine runs at between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm on the tachometer for a few seconds and then slowly drops back to an idle (~800rpm). as soon as you put it in gear again, the car lunges once again - throw it in neutral - 3,000 - 4,000 rpm, slowly recovers. after two - three minutes the engine stabilizes and the problem is gone. please note this is all without touching the accelerator - ever! this happens when the vehicle is cold and usually during high humidity or rainy conditions. it is so unpredictable that i have never sought help from a dealer. it is not repeatable in a way that the dealer would be able to diagnose since it happens fairly rarely (sometimes a couple of times a week - sometimes once a month) and inconsistently. if i was an inexperienced driver and if this was a more powerful car, i would no doubt have had a serious accident by now. i have learned to pay attention to the motor when i first start the vehicle. if it sounds like it is idling a bit fast then i know it will try to run away with me when i put it in gear so i just wait for it to idle down to normal before putting it in gear. *tr.Mileage was 17000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 2008.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2004 saturn ion with a bad power steering module. i read today that gm is recalling 1.3 million pontiac g5 and chevrolet cobalt vehicles for the same reason. the saturn ion has the same power steering module as those vehicles so i hope it is also recalled. events leading up to the failure is as follows: start the car, drive around for approximately 30 seconds, and the dash displays power steering and there is a "chime" sound indicating the power steering has failed. the power steering is not functional until the car is turned off, then started again, at which time there is another approximately 30 seconds before failure. this happens everytime the vehicle is started. we've brought it to the dealer and they want $800 to replace the module. so far we've just lived with it and stopped driving the car and decided to never buy gm again. if you search google for "saturn ion power steering problems" or "saturn ion power steering recall" there are thousands of complaints. *tr.Saturn Ion 2004 problem was reported in SAINT LOUIS, MO.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 31, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . i am sending this as a worried son of a 2004 saturn ion 2 owner. my mother has called me several times asking about the steering on her car. she will be just driving down the highway and she hears a chime and sees a light on her dash indicating loss of power steering. when she restarts the car the issue goes away. also on march 31st 2010, this happened on her drive to work in city driving conditions, once again having to shut off her car to reset the steering twice in 5 miles. the part causing this is the same part that is being recalled in 1.3 million gm cars currently but the saturn ion is not on the list. i urgently ask you to include these cars on the recall. with very little trouble i have found many people on many message boards with the same issue my mother is having with her car. put your self in my place, imagine your mother who loves to go visit her family over 100mi from home as often as she can, driving on i-35 in minnesota to the minneapolis -st. paul at 65-70mph and having to pull over on an interstate several times per trip so she can turn off her car only to reset the power steering system. then having to safely merge back onto that interstate. i would hope you would be as worried as i am. if not your mother then what about you son/daughter, wife/husband or any one you know having to do the same thing, all because of a part that is already being recalled in other cars. god forbid she get into an accident and gets hurt or worse having to deal with this issue. i do know that my children will not be in that car until the problem is fixed. i understand an accident can happen to anyone at anytime but it should not be caused by a known faulty part. too many people have already been effected with toyota's issues, lets not let this issue to cause the loss of any or any more injuries or deaths. *tr.Mileage was 55000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 16, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . during my drive home from work, i was slowing down for a red light, and the pwr str error light came on in my car immediately followed by my power steering giving out. i could hardly turn the wheel, but struggled with two hands to pull off the road and turn my car off. when i restarted it several minutes later, the error message was gone. i started driving again and the power steering returned. i made it home. the following monday i took the car to return to work where i planned to take it into the mechanic near there. again, as i was coming to an intersection and preparing to turn onto a busy highway, the error message came on again and my power steering completely gave out. i was extremely shaken up and forced the wheel to turn off to the side. again, by shutting off the engine temporarily, i was able to get it to work well enough to get to work. my mechanic observed the car and determined that this is an electronic steering problem. to fix it the entire steering column would need to be replaced. this has an estimated cost of $1,000 and needs to be done at a certified saturn dealer because of the software associated with the fix. this problem is exactly what was reported in the gm recall of compact cars to fix the power steering. the steering column parts are the same in the 2004 saturn ion 3, which is what i drive. yet, my car was not included in the recall. why? i am not able to drive my car until it is fixed. this is a serious safety hazard, as i am barely strong enough to turn the wheel without the power steering. i was only lucky that this did not happen while i was in different places of my commute or the consequences could have been severe. *tr.Mileage was 79500 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 05, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . escondido, ca. -- i am a longtime owner of saturns -- i own a 2009 vue now and have owned four other sedans -- and have always thought they were reliable and safe cars. my daughter drove an sl for years. now i am not so sure. i just purchased (july 5) a 2004 saturn ion redline, 73,000 miles on the odometer, for my son, the first day he drove it, the power steering went out while he was making a turn. he nearly had an accident. there was a chime, the letters pwr str appeared on the dashboard readout, and the power steering went out immediately, making the vehicle extremely difficult to steer. turning off the car and starting it again restored the power steering. but within 24 hours, the same thing happened twice more without any warning, once while i was driving the car. i have since done a web search and found hundreds of complaints about the ion for this exact problem. this is not just a simple issue of a part wearing out. it is a widespread and extraordinarily dangerous situation that is going to result in injuries or death, if it hasn't already. i am also outraged that gm has issued a recall for the chevy cobalt ss, which has the same steering system as the ion redline, but not for the ion. i have contacted gm, and a spokewoman (merissa) acknowledged the cobalt recall, but said it did not apply to the ion for reasons she could not explain. are the safety and lives of saturn ion owners somehow less valuable than owners of chevy cobalts? gm has directed me to a chevy dealer (now that saturn is gone) to have the problem assessed. it says it cannot promise anything because the car is out of warranty. but this is clearly a problem due to a defective steering system. i implore nhtsa to require a recall for saturn ions with electric steering. just do a google search for "saturn ion power steering fails" to see all the identical complaints and harrowing reports of accidents and near accidents. do your job, please, before someone is seriously injured or killed. *tr.Mileage was 73200 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 12, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2004 saturn ion level 2. my vehicle's 'check engine' light appears quite frequently. i brought it to a dealership to be check out over a year ago. i was told that nothing was wrong with my vehicle. for a year, i have been driving with a 'check engine' light randomly lighting up. last night, midway around a bend, my vehicle's electric power steering went out, and straightened my wheel- putting me into oncoming traffic. i could have died and killed another driver. this morning, after calling around to dealerships and mechanics and doing my own research, i have found out that my vehicle's make and model is under evaluation for a recall concerning the power steering. this "evaluation" was only recently started this past year. there have been no public warnings and gm is refusing to acknowledge the problem even after the diagnostic tests have been performed. many drivers are driving without the problem being fixed because of the price tag of the repair and the state of the economy. what is it going to take for a recall regarding saturn ions?! the death of a saturn driver? this is becoming absurd and i believe worse than the toyota ordeal. they are sweeping the issue under a rug, along with our money and most importantly, the safety of saturn drivers' lives. i have been conversing with other saturn drivers who have had the same problems, we are furious and paranoid that at any point in time we may die. *tr.Mileage was 130000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 05, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2004 saturn ion (red line). in july of last year, my power steering went out while driving. you have to turn the car off and restart it in order to reset the power steering. the problem occurred twice that month and did not happen again until june of this year. it has happened 5 times since. i have noticed that the problem usually occurs when the weather is hot (over 90 degrees). other than that, there is no set circumstance. it can just go out at any time. i contacted saturn and they said there was a problem with some part of the steering column that was causing the problem, but the way the car is made, they just can't replace the part, but the entire steering column has to be replaced. this would cost between 700.00 and 800.00 before labor. i have been researching this on the internet and have found dozens of other people who have had the same problem. i feel this is a safety problem on saturns part and the steering column needs to be recalled. i understand you have had similar complaints about this problem. i hope you take these complaints into consideration. *tr.Mileage was 122000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2010.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS LLC had a problem with STEERING . when parallel parking or parking in a conventional space, steering becomes difficult. at first it was every couple of months, now it is becoming multiple times within a month. it last happened about a week ago. while this is an intermittent problem, it is a problem none the less. typically occurs after cranking the steering wheel to pull into a parking spot or out of a parking spot. its as if there is no power steering when maneuvering the steering wheel. this is not a problem resulting from resistance from a curb, nor is it from lack of the vehicle moving. this has happened while in reverse and backing. this has happened while in drive and moving forward. typically coincides with a full crank of the steering wheel to the left. this is an issue which i am unable to duplicate on a deliberate attempt of duplication. this leads me to believe it to be an intermittent issue. i was teaching a friend how to drive in my car, and he was saying that the wheel was very difficult to turn. at first i thought he was just going through the trials and tribulations of a person learning to drive. seeing him labor more over the wheel in order to get it to turn. i had him stop the car and i switched with him. i started the car and attempted to parallel park. i encountered the same issue as him while attempting to park. this was the first time it happened. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100000 miles.

(still stuck) i went to a saturn dealer today and was told that the problem could be the solenoid, the housing unit, or even both. i was told that the key may have worn down, or a part in the housing may have scratched the inner surface of the housing causing the key to be stuck in the ignition. i live in florida, so the "cold" weather isn't a factor here. i cannot believe that there has not been a recall for this problem. i have two young kids who ride with me everyday, and i fear that we will get stranded in god only knows where. if my car is stolen because the key is always in the ignition, if it gets stolen, will my insurance even pay for my loss??? i thought saturn was supposed to be very good with problems involving their automobiles. i guess that idea only applied to their commercials. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles.

Saturn Ion 2004 Fuel/propulsion System Review #10511470

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 26, 2013.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . the portion of the fuel lines near the fuel pump, which is hidden by a flexible cover underneath car, was discovered to be severely rusted nearly to the point of leaking, requiring fuel line replacement. in contrast, the portion of the fuel lines exposed underneath car was still in pristine condition. (car has been garaged at night since delivery.) service manager said that recently they have been finding many saturn ions with this condition. although gm has issued a recall for fuel pump leaks, the problem often is instead the fuel line has rusted through and is leaking. this problem would not be expected, and thus appears to be due to a saturn design or manufacturing defect. because of the prevalence and significant safety issue, the service manager expects gm will eventually issue a recall for the fuel line problem. because the portion of the fuel line subject to severe rusting is hidden behind the flexible cover underneath the car and not the exposed section, it is likely to be noticed only after leaking occurs, resulting in a fire hazard. a recall appears desirable to inspect particularly the hidden portion of the fuel lines near the fuel pump and replace them if needed. although a manufacturer must provide a remedy to safety-related defect a no cost to the owner, in this instance gm refuses to pay for the fuel line replacement unless the nhtsa compels them to issue a recall. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 133271 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 24, 2013.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with STEERING . this is what happened to me, without warning or prior incident; while on my way to work, driving on a freeway about 55-60mph, i notice a "pwr str" warning light come on my dash. since i am driving straight ahead, i notice no change. as soon as i attempt to change lanes to get off the freeway, i realize that i can barely steer the car and that my power steering has completely failed. there is no shoulder on this freeway, so it is safest to get off the freeway. making the right turn off the freeway is nearly impossible and takes all of my strength just to turn the wheel. this was extremely scary and put me in a very unsafe situation. luckily, this did not cause an accident and nobody was hurt. there was not a lot of traffic at the time, and once off the freeway, i could quickly and safely come to a place where i could pull over and park. after reading the number of complaints for this exact similar problem, i am amazed that no recall has been issued to date. this is something that could potentially injure or kill someone by way of an accident... this is just an accident waiting to happen. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 70000 miles.

SATURN ION 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 14, 2008.SATURN ION 2004, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . it turns out saturn ion ignition switches came with a flaw from the factory, excessive grease with poor cold weather performance.the passlock issue presents itself as your car suddenly not starting. suffice it to say if there's no obvious reason for your vehicle to not start, it's probably passlock related. if you've noticed that waiting a few minutes seems to help, that's the clincher. ten minutes is the magic number, that's when the computer resets. if you were charged for a new battery, starter, ignition switch or a tow i suggest you not let the issue drop, it wasn't your fault or responsibility. gm should take responsibility. forgetting the unpleasantness of being stranded in 10 minute increments (also, the car fails to start several times in a row, as long as 40 minutes before) this is a safety issue that should be dealt with accordingly. calling the problem a safety issue might seem like a stretch but let's think for a moment. what if you're trying to flee an emergency situation (stalker, landslide, fire, flood, etc.) and your car fails to start? what if it's -10 outside and your car won't start? you're now stuck in a freezing car for a minimum of 10 extra minutes, going in
