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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

Great fuel economy, reliability, stereo


Suggested Improvements

Improve safety, do something about the noisy brakes
