I,too, had the head gasket problem but
the dealership gave me a real cheap
price to replace it because they
admitted the older Neons had this
problem. Had a couple of other minor
problems (erg valve and the coil pack)
but they were covered under warranty.
I have 104,000 miles on her now and she
still runs great! Good acceleration,
hugs corners, great fuel mileage, heat
the would make the devil hot, great a/c.
great radio/speakers and she always
starts! Good cold weather car!
Very comfortable seats, very good
steering, well lit dash, excellent sound
system, easy to work on engine.
I wish they would get a new design for
the cup holders because if you have a
beverage in them, it blocks the ashtray
and I happen to smoke! Also could use a
light so you can see it at night.
Also wished they would make it a full
hatchback, handy to move things in.
