1997 Dodge Neon Sport 2dr Coupe

Review

I'm the original owner of the Neon and I will admit that during the first two years, this car suffered through a lot of problems. Some examples are blown head gasket after 9 months, clouding paint after one year, and factory sunroof breaking EVERY summer ( three times during the third year ). However, after these "teething" problems, the car has turned out to be a reliable, thrifty, comfortable and fun little car.

Favorite Features

Comfortable and roomy interior. The engine is a little rough around the edges ( Honda and Toyota engineers need not run back to the drawing board ) but it's relatively quick and economical.

Suggested Improvements

Better paint quality. I have the "lapis blue" paint and it's cracking and peeling on the roof, quarter panel, and trunk lid. Chrysler will not acknowledge that there is a problem with the factory paint not adhering to the primer. Improve sunroof design.
