1998 Dodge Neon R/T 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

I love the sporty feel that it has when you drive it. For a compact car it has a lot of guts!


Worst Features

You get a lot of road noise in the Neon and even with brand new struts it is still a bump ride sometimes.

1998 Dodge Neon R/T 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

It would have to be the performance of the car. 150 horses create excitment and joy to drive.


Worst Features

Gas mileage has to improve as well as the interior which is mainly plastic

1998 Dodge Neon Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had much fun driving this
vehicle the last month. I purchased it
from Regency Dodge and am very pleased
with it thus far. I plan to purchase
my next car or truck with them in the
future.

1998 Dodge Neon Highline 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this 1998 Neon from a friends
son to have as a highway vehicle. I
bought it in non-running conditon with
under 100000 miles on it and it was in
POOR shape. I towed it home, replaced
the head with one I found on eBay (for
about 250.00) and some other parts
(total cost was under 350.00 + my time).
After shampooing the interior several
times, new floor mats and a clay bar +
wax job the car has ran 20,000+ miles
without ANY PROBLEMS!! I don't even
bother to change the oil, i just make
sure it is topped off and that the car
idles fine. It isn't the prettiest
thing on the road but I can't believe
how this car never dies. A Great buy
for anyone...


Best Features

The Stereo, Heater, Big trunk and rear seat for its compact size, reliable with little service work.


Worst Features

Small review mirror THATS IT! (wow, what a compaint.. Other car companys would love to have a complaint like that instead of what they have)

Review

Head gasket problems seem to
be 'normal' for this car; ours had to
be replaced around 35,000 miles (and
the head remilled to boot). No recall
for this problem, but Chrysler did kick
some cash back to the dealership for
repairs after a considerable amount of
complaining. Also, trunk has always
leaked -- friends of mine had the same
problems with their Neons. After five
years of misc. mechanical problems, I'm
happy to be getting rid of it!


Best Features

Handles well. Comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

Head gaskets, trunk gaskets, and oddly enough, the car doesn't seem to defrost well -- like the air blows in the wrong spot to be effective. Wipers ice up in winter, I get sick of beating on them!
