Should we buy our daughter a 2003 saturn ion automatic transmission? I've read lots of bad things, about starting issues. Does that happen a lot or just a few? How would we know if it's going to happen to this car? Does it happen when new, or years later?

On an 11 year old car anything is possible. I'd talk to your local GM dealer about this. If it's a known problem perhaps GM has issued a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on it that will quickly identify the suspect component(s). An elderly fellow at work bought an '02 Saturn about a year ago and has had no problems with it. Good luck with your search. HTH. -Jim
