Question Saturn Ion problem

I have a Saturn 2004 Ion that moves without stepping on the gas.
It idles at 700rpm in park but does not drop when shifted into any gear. It will even go uphill in gear without pressing the gas pedal. I took it to Saturn and they replaced the Idle Air Control Valve but it still has the problem. They also reprogramed the PCM per bulletin 04-06-04-029A....HELP

At what rpm would you like to see it idle at when in drive? 700 RPM in drive sounds a bit low to me.

700 RPM seems like a reasonable idle speed when in gear. If you have a problem with the car going without stepping on the gas - try stepping on the brake, it should work
