2004 Saturn Ion Recalls
On certain vehicles, the key can be removed from the ignition when it is not in the "off" position.
Power steering assist could be lost unexpectedly. Should this occur, steering ability would be maintained but would require much more effort.
While driving, the ignition switch can move out of the "run" position. As a result the engine would stall and the airbags would not deploy in the event of a crash.
The front turn signal/day time running lights may not work as expected.
On some supercharged Ion models, the hard fuel line to the engine could crack and leak fuel. If this happens, there would be an noticeable fuel odor. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
Some welds on the passenger side of the vehicle do not meet the engineering specification. Long term durability of the joint may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Vehicles equipped with 2.2L 4-cylinder engine could develop a fuel leak from the fuel filter.
The power windows and sunroof may operate with the ignition switch off, even after the front passenger door has been opened.
