    This is the kind of thing you should get addressed IMMEDIATELY by taking your car to the dealer (with a 2007 its likely still under warranty) or an independent mechanic. It could be any number of issues for a simple leak in the steering power pumps to something more severe, but don't wait as it creates a risk to both you and other drivers on the road.

    I think the power steering in a Saturn Ion is electrical. No fluid. Check fuses.

    I just received a letter telling me to take it to any GM dealer to have this fixed. I took it in and the motor was replaced at no charge
