    Its A Fine Car. — Not my cup of tea body style wise, but this a great car for a college student. There isn't a ton of room in the back seats, so not a family car. But there is plenty of trunk space. And it holds up to rust and dents really really well. No issues there.

    Pros: Runs forever, good on fuel.

    Cons: Not really any.

    Very Reliable — This was my first car. It took me around the country and back safely. GREAT on gas mileage. My only problem was that it sits very low. I'm more comfortable driving taller cars. That's way why I traded it in.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage, good ride

    Cons: sits low

    No Cost Ownership — Best car I have ever owned when it comes down to cost of ownership and reliability. Wish I could afford to have 2 cars. 34mpg plus every amenity from MP3 to ice cold air, cruise and on star, keyless entry and much more

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Gas mileage, safety, maintence and reliability

    Cons: Wish they were still making them

    Get The Ion!!! — Most reliable car I have ever driven.....the weight distribution is well balanced for diamonding the corners. The dash is in a unusual posistion, however after time it becomes a great asset. Trunk has PLENTY of room. Handling is decent for price range. . .. . . . ............................................................................ ................... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the weight distribution is well balanced for diamonding the corners.

    Cons: the steering wheel locks up more than usual.

    Look After It And It Will Look After You — This is a Ion 2.4 5speed manual that is a rocket. Being a light weight car with 170HP and a manual tranny it accelerates with lots of power through all 5 gears. No complaints about build quality fit is good. Handling is well balanced in straight highway driving and on curvy roads.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good economical transportation

    Cons: nothing

    Do/ Don't Like About Ion2's — low maintenace, good gas mileage, has trouble starting in the morning you have to try it some mornings and then come back out 10 min. later for it to start but that is only when it is relly cold or wet outside.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: not starting when you try it the first time

    Good Family Car — It is made of polymer, so it does not dent or rust, a really good thing. With the 2.4 liter engine, the car has good performance and handling. The trim for the Ion 3 is fairly good inside, the car has really good gas mileage, better than the 2.2 liter.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Made of Polymer.

    Cons: none i can think of.
