my experience has been good with the 98
neon r/t. just look at it for what it's
worth—a cheap car. build quality and
dash components need some work.
performance and fun are high points.
car corners like a dream—only 2500 lbs—
dodge has done a great job with
suspension. the dohc requires premium
gas, but you get better gas mileage
(29/38 mpg) and more power from the
engine (150hp.) the seats may feel
tight for normal people, but just right
for small/skinny people. abs, sun roof,
dohc, etc. are some good options. the
rear windows didn't come as automatic,
though. 5th gear whines and can get a
little loud. it's a darn good car for
great cornering, suspension, sunroof,
good gas mileage, great price
engine noise needs to be muffled,
overall dash usability should be
clearer, build quality is still not
where it should be
