Saturn Complaint - Poor gas mileage - Saturn Ion
HURST, TEXAS -- I purchased a 2006 Saturn Ion a year ago. It has now been in the shop 7 times for the fact that it only gets 18 miles per gallon of gas. A fact determined by logging the miles and dividing by gallons purchsed, you know, the same way we all calculate it. Saturn howeve, claims they have done sone type of in house test and their test says I am getting 37 miles per gallon. Inspite of the fact that I have logs to prove otherwise, they now refuse to take any further action to reolsve the issue and say they stand behind their tests. Well of course. But all it would take is even one person to fill the car up, clear the trip, or log the mileage, drive it until it's empty, fill it back up and do the math. Yet they now say they have dismissed the issue, basically too bad soo sad, we claim it's gets 37 miles per gallon so you are SOL.
Do not purchase a Saturn Ion, it's a 4 cyclinder car witht he fuel economy of a 8 cyclinder! And worse Saturn won't do what is right for it's customers. I discussed filling the lemon law with an attorney and am told my logs will not hold up with a judge as I could have altered them. And that fuel economy is a tough one to prove due to all the variables such as the way a person drives etc.
