Hello everyone, I just had a quick question: Which car do you think is better, Saturn Ion or Toyota Corolla and why? I'm doing research for a new car and I was just wondering which car would be the best bargain for it's price. Thanks so much :laughing:

i think the carolla is more expensive then the saturn.. but if i had to choose.. i would choose the corolla... it looks better and i trust toyota more than a saturn... hey, y not get the toyota corolla S. that car looks so sweet!

Surprisingly, the Saturn, with all the features I want, and the Corolla came up to around the same price, but thanks for your opinion.

For starters, how about picking a more readable font color. I heard bad reviews about the Satrun Ion, the Corolla would probably be your best choice for drivability and reliability. Saturn has become really crappy these last past years.

Last week I would've said take the Toyota over Saturn.

A friend of mine just bought a new Saturn ION fully loaded at just over 20k out the door. Leather interior, XM radio, center mounted gauges, chrome wheel pkg, rear spoiler, alarm, premium sound sys, full carpet mats, peppy engine (don't know about it in detail, but it was decent). I wasn't impressed with the build quality control as the hood and fender lines don't match too well and there's a good quarter-inch gap in the front that makes it look open...she's going back to get this adjusted. Dent resistant body panels. Interchangeable body accents. Overall, the car is beautiful!

I don't think you can get the same set up in a Corolla for an equal price. And as far as I know, Saturn is putting out a pretty reliable car today.

i notice this topic is in the "domestic" subject, so im guessing a saturn is a american car.. i always thought it was japanese lol :oops:

btw lady j.. what is the price range of the ion (coupe or sedan)?

Oh excuse me when I said crappy I was speaking from an engine performance point of view. I know people who have Ions that are a lil weak on the engine side if you catch my drift.

Whats the thing is that shes comparing the Saturn to the Corolla, wich in this case the Corolla would win. But for the money and a daily driver I would'nt mind having a Ion.

Research is your best friend. Click for Saturn Ion (http://research.cars.com/go/crp/safety.jsp?makeid=43&modelid=6768&year=200 4&crpPage=summary.jsp&aff=national) vs Click for Toyota Corolla (http://research.cars.com/go/crp/safety.jsp?makeid=47&modelid=426&year=2004 &crpPage=summary.jsp&aff=national). It seems JD&P consider the corolla better...
