Stupid American Car...

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 5/30/2015 papaclutch

Used to Hondas and Toyotas. Bought used Ion for my teenage daughter - what a mistake. Clean CarFax, 91,000 seemed to drive fine. Assumed it would be good for her limited driving needs for a few years. Wrong - at just 91K needs ball joints, shocks/struts, and the transmission seems to occasionally slip. Repairs first year are going to be as much as I paid for the car - $3000! In the end I should have just spent $6000 on a good Honda or Toyota. American cars are just bad - especially GM. No American cars for me EVER AGAIN.

Favorite Feature : None yet.

Suggested Improvement : Just basic mechanical quality. So disappointing that GM has not found a way in decades to make a basic, decent, reliable car. Japanese from now on for me.

Average Rating : 1.875
