Head gasket went after 38K, A/C
repaired in 3rd year, electrical
problems with signal lights, then
radio. Paint pealing off roof and
both wiper arms had paint peeling and
they both have broken. On the highway
the windows scream. Weather stripping
around doors and trunk were coming
off. Piece of crap!
I found it had good pick up and gas
mileage when I first bought it.
Dodge tucks aren't bad but the rest is
I think that the neon is an alright car it doesnt have very fast acceleration and
it really touchy but its fun to drive and you can improve it so its alright its
definitly not a car that you would want to drive fast or hard
The inside and look
Make it so it doesnt break so easily, coinholder has no purpose and its
needs to be faster
Head Gasket blew Chysler only paid half
and it was like pulling teeth to get
them to pay. A/C compressor and
evaporator blew at the same time over
1000 dollars to fix. Won't do it since
the car isn't worth that much. Sensors
for gas gauge bad. Windows when open
have water pour in when it rains had to
put on vent shades.
None. Well actually the fact that I can
park it anywhere and leaveit open and
no one will steal it.
I replaced close to about absolutely
everything on this vehicle except the
engine. Auto Transmission only lasts
60K miles! AC and Head Gasket Last
about 36K miles. Alternator belt,
cables/wires/starter last about 4
years. This car is a complete lemon,
and almost all Neons are like this.
Neons were designed to break-down after
the 3 year warranty.
Handles like a Porche 911.
Make a decently reliable car. This one
was towed 4 times! I had to sell it at
I bought a Neon new in 1994. This was the worst car I ever owned, with dozens of problems, like 4 replaced engine computers, loose exhaust, clunking suspension, leaking window seals (window are frameless, beware!), bad brakes, electrical probelms, etc, etc, etc.
I sold this car at a significant loss in 1998, but I would have paid someone to take it off my hands.
