This is normal down shift, if it is slight. If it is harsh then it could be a software problem or a seal problem. ie.. sticking solenoid piston. You can get some transmission additive that helps with the seals. But again if it is slight and not throwing you threw the windshield I wouldn't worry about it.

What would cause my 2004 saturn ion to bog down at 25 to 30 mph


Almost certainly a sensor is faulty somewhere. Take it to a garage and ask them to put it on an error code reader.

The speed control sensor will cause that and it makes it so it will stay in second gear until you can get to repair shop. Check out youtube and put your problem and see if anyone fixed it

Your going to have to get the car scanned for the DTC codes, Auto Zone and most repair shops can scan for the DTC codes but note Auto Zone scan free of charge. The DTC code will indicate the issues than needs to be addressed to get your car running 100% again. It cold be as simple as a dirty fuel filter and will need to be replaced, Note and dirty fuel filter will make the fuel pump work harder cause it to have a shorter life and the fuel pressure may be getting too low now for the fuel injectors to work properly. Have the car scanned for the DTC codes and replace the fuel filter which is recommend every 15,000 miles or once a year. Good luck and keep me posted.

1993 Saturn SL2 will not shift into highway gear


Saturn says and I quote

there transmission fluid is not to be changed after the first change at 6000 miles.

Now I say it should be changed at every 30000 miles. If changing out the fluid doesn't work then you need to go to a transmission repair shop.

2004 Saturn Ion - No Reverse lights


The problem is most likely on the transmission range selector switch, this is on th top of the transmission and has a multi-wire connector going to it, a shaft goes through it and the trans shift cable is connected there.
