1997 Dodge Neon 4dr Sedan


Review

Honestly it was my second car after my first vehicle (1995 Honda Passport) died on me. I purchased this vehicle with around 144,XXX miles on it. Ran like a charm, but wasn't exactly my "type" of vehicle. Started experiencing odd behavior with the car so I sold it and purchased a Mustang Cobra. I was driving an Automatic and switched to Manual. I love the Mustang 1000x more than that little Neon.

Suggested Improvements

Exterior reliability. If you crash that vehicle head on with anything, your engine will remain in your lap.

1997 Dodge Neon Highline 2dr Coupe


Review

Vehicle bought from salvage pool for wife-no damage-theft/recovery. 2 head gaskets needed replaced; then normal maintenance. Had dings taken out, repainted red w/clearcoat, added cruise control She loves it and will keep it til it dies!


Favorite Features

Zippy; quick response and acceleration for a 4 cyl engine. All in all, a fun little car to drive!


Suggested Improvements

Chrysler Motors knew they had a problem with the head gaskets and should have addressed that; wish it had power options.

Review

Chipped paint, burns oil like crazy, coolant leak, fuel pump is going out, serpentine belt is squeaking, the backseat is a joke -- really, nobody can fit in this car. There are some good things. I love the acceleration. Love the manual trans. I like how it handles and parking it is great. But there are so many other better cars out there. You may get it for cheap -- but it will cost you more in the long run.
