I purchased my neon new, I've had it 7 years and it has 115,000+ miles. I've changed to oil religiously and only last year I had to replace the breaks, and head gasket. Hey, what the heck the car has been very good to me, gets great gas mileage, rides smoothly, and it is fun. I have a 4 door, with sunroof and spoiler on the back so it looks sporty. I have been very happy with my NEON!
Gas mileage, handles well
I think they got it right, don't fix it if it isn't broken!
