WEIREST SATURN REVIEW EVER!
Kinda started as a review for my 2004 Saturn Ion Quad Coupe. Ended with me just talking about the car and a few other things... If you purchase a Saturn Ion, be aware that the electric power steering has a few issues. Mine goes out every couple of months and I have to replace the fuses (#42 and #43).

2004 Saturn Ion Coupe: The Best Car Ever Made
I'm selling my Saturn. Want it? Throw me your best offer! FAQ: I'm in Dallas, TX. Let's do it! The car just had an oil change, engine flush, fresh brake fluid, and an inspection. It should be good to go for awhile!
Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 11/23/2015: My car died a year ago. Apparently you should check the oil more often than I did. Oh well. Car still started perfectly up until I donated it to charity and got a tax write off for it. I will not be posting any further updates but to answer questions that keep coming up: PUT THE AIR BAG FUSE BACK IN AFTER YOU CUT THE WIRE, WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND !!!BEFORE!!! YOU DRIVE IT AGAIN!!!!!!! If you decide to reconnect the wire you must do so while the car is running. Yes, the lock light will come on as well as the Service Engine message. I think that is it. This was the nail in the GM coffin for me. They don't stand behind their cars. Have friends with other GMs and similar treatment from GM for things that are a design or manufacturing issues. Will never buy any GM vehicle again and actively discourage others. Happy with my Toyota. Good luck! UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on the same battery. Thanks for all the comments! This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to "fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :) Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I first heard about this solution. Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running, turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
