Water Leaking In

CarComplaints.com Seal Of Avoid Like The Plague

CarComplaints.com Notes: When it comes to the 2006 Ion, the biggest questions are: what big problem is going to pop up next? And how long until GM chooses to address it?

The 2006 Ion has a defective ignition switch that gave owners fits. Their keys would get stuck in the ignition, the engine wouldn’t shut off or in some cases it would shut off at the most dangerous time. The ignition was eventually recalled as part of one of the largest recalls of all-time , but it took GM 10 years to do it. Then there’s this car’s temperamental power steering which is prone to stop working randomly while driving. It too was eventually recalled, even if GM took their sweet time about it.

Lastly, it turns out a car built with plastic doors, fenders and bumpers – while fun for a game of “shopping cart bocce” – is horrible for safety.

It is ridiculous that every part of my car is getting wet when the sunroof in the car hasn't been open in over a year. The car is leaking above every door. The sunroof leaks. I get water in the trunk when it rains hard. I have had 3 recalls on the vehicle and I have only had it since 2010. The dealer needs to take care of all the issues that keep arising with this vehicle. It should not be leaking so bad when it rains that the car leaks everywhere.
