I bought a pair of R/T's new for me and my wife hers white/blue stripes mine Brilliant blue pearlcoat with silver stripes. hers remained totally stock,mine received a cold air/K&N combo with aftermarket exhaust.we have not had cars as fun to drive or reliable in our lives. Both our cars still get about 38mpg (I bump the rev limiter on a daily basis) with each over 150k miles we are deciding on what we would want to replace them with...seems funny that todays hi-tec hybrids and flex-fuel vehicles only get low 30's mpg What was so special about our neons? (I was raised on Big block Chargers and Road Runners..a lot of fun, but a huge difference on reliability)

I loved this car. I had it for years. Timing belt broke at about 210,000 miles. Spent about $1300 dollars. Drove it a month and now it is smoking lilke a freight train. I want it fixed. I love the car. I drove a newer neon and the comfort, handling and performance was nowhere near as good as my Neon.

This is one of the best cars for the money. Even after 7 years, it can't be matched on a performance for the dollar and reliability basis. I drove the heck out of it for 132,000 miles without even so much as a wimper. No only did I teach two teenage daughters on the car, we autocrossed it hard for 5 years! What other car could be had for $13,000, 7.5 sec 0-60; 15.9 1/4 mile and 130mph top end and gets 37+ MPG? To top it off it's big enough to haul anything except a sheet of plywood. All I can say is wow!

I've had the car for 5 years and
69,000 miles. Love driving this car.
Alot of fun to drive everyday. I've
had the head gasket replaced under
warranty at 45K. EGR valve several
times. Sunroof assembly replaced once.
Other than that it has been a
wonderful car to me. Well worth the
money paid. I plan on keeping this car
for a long time.

We bought this car new five years ago.
It has been very reliable over the five
years. We have only had to make minor
repairs to the car. It still gets
great gas mileage. Within the first two
years we did have problems with the
sunroof, but it was under warranty and
our local Dodge dealership took care of
the problem in a timely manor. Other
than that...no major problems.

The Dodge Neon R/T is one great car.
Since the first time I got in the car
till the present I have enjoyed this
car. As long as you do proper
maintainance on time, this car will
last you for a long time and fill your
life with excitment.
I have a few problems. 1 My front two speakers in my 1998 Plymouth Neon do not work. 2. I get shocked everytime I get out of my car. 3. my battery is being drained somehow. My thinking is that all the...
