Best $5K I ever spent


1998 Dodge Neon Sport 2dr Coupe


I purchased the car used for about $4K. I knew it had an oil leak when purchased. I had to change the head gasket and drive shaft seal, and also decided to change the water pump. Another $1K invested. The head gasket was known design defect that was fixed, and I've had no leaks since. The car now has 160K miles on it and still runs great. No problems. It's fun to drive. It has a good interior and great head room for persons under 6 ft. I'm getting 36 mpg (70- 75 mph) in warmer months with good Mobil gas...generic gas about 3 mpg less. Best $5K I have ever invested. An excellent basic commuter car.

Best Features

Nibble handling. Good pickup with 5 speed manual. Easy to change spark plugs, wires and oil filter.

Worst Features

6 speed manual...to get better mpg at high speeds. Improve access to air filter.
