2004 Saturn ION Real Gas Mileage: Cons

4-speed automatic FWD
The car is a bit thirsty for the size of the car. I feel it should get better mileage. see full Saturn ION review
2004 4dr Coupe 140-horsepower 2.2L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I hear the fuel economy has improved; however, the 2004 is poor. Roughly 21 city 26 hwy. I realize that is decent; however, compaired to other inline 4 small, sedans (that are plastic!) it ranks very low. see full Saturn ION review
