Above and Beyond
July 29, 2018
In 2003 I owned a 1983 Chevy Celebrity and I loved my car but my mother sold it when I was at school so, my dad, angry, took me out to look at getting a new car. I needed a car, I was a busy 19 year old, I was working 2 jobs as well as going to school so he wanted me to have something reliable, something made in America. We went to the Saturn Dealership and he picked out, for me, a car I really didn't like. It had 4-doors, it was white, no fancy things like cruse control. Within a week I was in love with the ION. It was a smooth drive, fun to drive, I loved street racing in it (I was 19, thats what kids did), the ION took off like a fighter jet on the road and it purred like a new kitten under the hood. I have owned the ION since 2003, it now has 200,000mi on it, I have raised 4 kids in it and although its been beat up, stained and wrecked I still drive it. In 15 years I have replaced the breaks, seals, tires, battery and alternator, other than oil and filter changes thats all its needed. I use synthetic oil and replace it every 4-6000 miles and in turn for taking care of her she gives me all she has. ION is 15yrs old and she is a little worse for the ware but I will drive her until she dies.
