The Ion’s intentions were good. Saturn wanted to make a rival for the likes of Honda and Toyota’s popular compact sedans, so they issued this: the Saturn Ion. Unfortunately, it caused more problems for Saturn than it did solutions. It was outdated, boring and slow the day it came out of the factory. Very few people decided to take the plunge and buy one. We truly feel sorry for those folks. It has been named as the 2nd worst car of the millennium by multiple magazines and reviewers. It didn’t look good, had poor build quality, the interior was rattling and the engines were anything but compelling. The Ion was the final nail in the coffin for Saturn, completely bankrupting them and closing down the manufacturer.
Production 2002–March 2007
Base MSRP $20,950
