I owned my Neon for almost 3 years, I put 72,000 miles on it. It was OK for the first couple of months, but then the rotors started going bad, the right back speaker never would work, after being replaced 3 times, it was a very plain car with no bells and whistles. It was surprisingly peppy with the 2.0 L 4 cyl automatic, with 132 hp. Not much but I was younger and didn't need much. By the time I got rid of it it's speedometer and all other gauges would quit working from time to time which made the mileage not always work, so it probably had about 1,000 miles more on it than what it said. I would not recommend this car to anyone who drives a lot.
Cool looking head lights
Hub caps were horrible kept falling off, the reliabilty isn't that great, for the 4 cyl engine not the best gas mileage, they lose their value very quickly, quicker than most cars, all and all I'm glad they no longer make Neons after the 2005 model
