Default Ion production extended

GM keeps Saturn Ion rolling

Associated Press

DETROIT - A few hundred autoworkers can be thankful for gasoline prices topping $3 a gallon.

That's because they will keep their jobs, at least temporarily, because of General Motors Corp.'s decision to extend production of the Saturn Ion.

GM had planned to end production of the 4-cylinder compact in December. But the world's No.1 automaker said it will continue making the car at its Spring Hill, Tenn., plant at least through March 2007 to meet market demand.

"It gets good fuel economy and it's affordably priced," Jim Hall, vice president of industry analysis at the AutoPacific marketing research firm, told the Detroit Free Press. "It would be foolish of them to get rid of it."
