1998 Dodge Neon Competition 2dr Coupe


I bought my Dodge Neon used with 40,000 miles. Now, at 70,000 miles, I cannot wait to get it off my hands. The car is poorly constructed. I've spent way too much of my free time fixing the car. Only 3 months ago I dropped almost a grand on a tune-up. Now, the head gasket is broken and I have engine damage. Why did Dodge continue to make this car when they knew the head gaskets would go with so few miles? It's a very expensive thing to fix. For a little more money, I could have had a reliable car and peace of mind.

Best Features

Small, quick, great gas mileage

Worst Features

Almost everything about this car leaves room for improvement, from the loud engine to the vibrations to the faulty head gaskets.
