History
Purchased the Ion Redline in early 2018 with 160K miles on it. Either the 5th or 7th owner if you count dealerships. It was originally sold out of Arizona, but spent the last few years in SoCali. It was located in a trailer park in San Bernardino County CA. in need of either a new home or a trip to the salvage yard. It didn't run, because the battery was dead and the current owner had parked it after something with the clutch stopped working.
I purchased it for a good deal and had it towed 70 miles to our garage to see if it was worth saving.
