So, I bought this car because it was all I could afford at the time. However, I wish someone had told me how cheap it was, not to mention that they are hot cars to steal. This car is made so cheap the interior doors were coming off (plastic). Most 95' have problems with oil leaking so I was told by a mechanic. I had my car stolen the police said they are easy to steal. HE was right! I could easily pry my fingers behind my window and unlock my doors. Other problems I encountered with this cheaply made vehicle were that the driver side lock was broke so in order to lock my car I had to go through the passenger side to get into the car. The radio would work occasionally.
I guess it was good on gas, small and affordable.
I wish I would have read Emdunds.com before I bought the vehicle.
Just got this one. Previosly owned:
Subaru Justy ("lovely" ECVT)'91, Buick
Skylark'86, Mitsubishi Eclipse'00
This one is for 9-to-5 commute and for
$2100 with working AC its just
perfect. Hard feelings over railtracks
but hey - its driving!
I think I replaced every part of the
car except the engine. I change my
oilwhen I'm supposed to, I've had
complete break jobs 3 times... $800
bucks a pop each time... I only have
90,000 miles... I'll never buy a dodge
I got my Neon when a friend got too
rough with it and tore the clutch
out.He at the time decided to purchase
a SUV instead of repairing it. I
purchased it for $200.00 and have
replaced the torn out clutch, replaced
the broken transmission,installed new
front brakes, repaired an electrical
fault, and replace the A/C compressor
clutch to make it a cool comfortable
ride. For mileage and condition of this
car I am impressed!The car performs
well and handles beyond my
expectations.The car is as it should be
an affordable, economical, vechicle.
Miles do add up and things do wear. And
not all owners are equal and not all
cars are treated the same.
The car handles well without alot of
torque steer. When speed shifting you
can get rubber in third gear, Winds out
nicely and I love to ride the power
band. I am tall 6'3" and feel
comfortable in the drivers seat
(rare).The faults previously mentioned
were driver abuse.
Slight rattle in the doors with the
windows down. Four wheel disc brakes
should come as standard equipment.
