2008 Saturn Astra XR 2-DR Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 27K
2008 Saturn Astra XR
The Astra comes with a 1.8L DOHC 4 Cyl thats good for 138 HP. Sadly it's
paired to a 4 speed auto but there is a 5 speed manual available which
ought to wake things up.
Honestly, This is one decent hatch where the interior is quite good overall
considering it's a GM Vehicle. If theres anything more I can ask of it, a
more powerful engine option & an auto with 5+ gears. I feel this is the
car GM should've delivered in 2005 instead of the Cobalt, of course I do
mean branding it as a Chevy. I strongly feel that had that of been the
scenario, the Astra would've been a very successful car. Sadly, GM
stupidly placed it into the division where it was never appreciated or
Shewww, Not that often you hear me being rather positive about a GM
products huh lol

The problem was on a 2005 saturn ion with automatic transmission. The key
refuse to return to OFF position and to come out of ignition slot .
Ignition only accept ACC ON START. Watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION
SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case ,lead to the automatic
transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it fails frequently. As I got
closer to the microswitch, daylight was running away , my cam focus was
acting out the shifter is totally black making it hard to shoot I had to
speed up and get it done. WATCH CLOSELY HOW I SLIGHTLY BEND THE MICROSWITCH
LEVER TO GIVE IT MORE STRENGHT, i used a needle nose plier . The
microswitch is held in place by a removable plastic clip ( it's got a green
line painted onto it as you can see on the still image just prior to click
on the play icon ) I removed with a small flat tip screwdriver pushing from
the Inside out , no need to unclip top shifter panel. So after all this, I
went for a test ride, the problem disappeared, yes! it works, so far so
good. ( in my case the problem was the microswitch & its lever Inside the
consol shifter assembly ). http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo

Crash Test 2005 - 2007 (Discontinued) Saturn Ion IIHS
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Acceptable Acceptable Good Good Acceptable Acceptable
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Saturn ION was introduced in the 2003 model year as a replacement for
the SL. The size of the steering wheel was increased beginning with 2005
models and its number of spokes was increased from two to four. Also, the
driver airbag deployment characteristics were changed slightly.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well
controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar. Also during
the impact, the steering wheel broke off from the column.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low
risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. High
head accelerations occurred when the dummy's head hit both the steering
wheel through the airbag and the B-pillar, indicating that injuries to the
head would be possible. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to
the lower leg would be possible.
2006 Saturn Ion Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2006 Saturn Ion. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of
this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the
2007 Saturn ION Starting Problems
Since we drove the car off the lot it would periodically not start on
demand only to start some time later (usually 15 minutes or so). Because
this problem cannot be replicated on demand we have filmed an instance when
the car would not start.
