This is the Saturn with the suicide doors, 3.8 FD and 0.69 fifth gear. $1200. (BTW, NOT MY CAR... JUST A CRAIGSLIST FIND.)

2004 Saturn Ion
177k miles
clean title
smog done but since then code P0455 has come on - priced to sell as-is I'm not putting more money in this car
tags until 2019
no overheating
no leaking
no major work done
Clean Car Fax - no accidents

I've owned since 2013 but I'm having medical issues with my hands so I need to stay away from stick shift. I just came back from Yuma, AZ and no problems at all.

New tires 2 months ago
Last 6-9 months:
tune up: fuel filter, air filter, wires, spark plugs, oil
brakes & rotars turned 1 month ago
shampoo of seats done, $100 paid
wax done $100 paid
cleaned throttle body, replaced antifreeze reserve, rear oxygen sensor, ignition coil package, clutch master cylinder, shocks

Photos make the car appear a little nicer than it actually is cosmetically BUT not by too much! Very decent looking & reliable car for a great price!

4 cylinder 2.2
Manual 5 speed
front wheel drive
tags paid til 2019
smog done 2 weeks ago
AC works great
Clutch works GREAT
power everything, cruise control, sun roof, tilt wheel, aux, cd player, good sounding speakers
interior carpet/back 4/10

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
