1997 Dodge Neon Sedan Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

Exclusive owner for all 7 years, 67k
miles. This was the fastest, best
handling compact available at the
time. The host of aftermarket
performance parts available keeps it
competitive. Not a cushy luxury car,
but for the enthusiast on a budget.
The ONLY reliability problems were the
head gasket (fixed by dealer for $100),
and the gauge panel (fixed under
warranty.) Routinely get over 30 mpg
in mixed driving.


Best Features

Price, performance, economy, fun to drive, reliability, easy to maintain, easy to hot rod.


Worst Features

The car is noisy at highway speed and the ride is stiff, but that's the price of having a faster car that costs less.

Review

during the three years that I have
owned this vehicle I've put over 6,000
dollars in repair. I've replaced the
head gasket, transmission, and the
motor. This car does not even have
85,000 miles on it.

Review

I have driven this car for about 2
years (it now has 55000 miles), and
have had no major problems. The brakes
are noisy, and the parking brake
always need re-adjusting, but it's
been great. I wish I had the ABS, but
oh well. It does slide a bit on wet
roads. It is a reliable, and fun to
drive car, as long as you aren't
friends with too many "car" people.


Best Features

Great fuel economy, reliability, stereo


Worst Features

Improve safety, do something about the noisy brakes
