I hate this car. It has to many problems. I bought this car with 91,XXX miles on it and ive already had so many problem. So far ive had to replace the transmission coolant hoses and last night when i was driving it discovered i have to now replace the water pump and the water overflow where the antifreeze goes. I would NOT recomend this car or and DODGE NEON or DODGE to any one i know or will know in the future. THEY SUCK!!!!

I have owned my 99 neon sport for nearly 7 years. I purchased this car with 46k miles and have since put nearly 120k on it. It has been a very reliable car and has only left me stranded 2 times. First time was a radiator leak @ 130k miles and the second was just a loose neutral safety switch. Good in snow w/ snow tires. Performance is pretty good and cornering is a blast. Fuel economy ranged from 28mpg on low test in normal driving conditions to 39mpg on very long highway trips w/ high octane. Clear coat started to bubble up 2 years ago and headlights have fogged over due to sun exposure and need to be replaced. Over all, I feel that this has been a very good car.

I love my 99 Dodge Neon (DOHC). Best
car i have ever owned....No problems
so far with 130k miles....I only
replaced the timing belt (wasn't in
need of it but thought b4 it was I
would replace it) Great cars thinking
about buying a SRT-4...Keep up the
good work Dodge

Purchased new; my only vehicle since
1999. Excellent gas mileage, fun to
drive - faster than a 6 cylinder
Mustang. Very nimble around town and a
stable freeway cruiser. Of course, I
also have the 5 speed and DOHC.
Absolutely no problems and going on 80K
miles. For comparison, I drove an Audi
TT w/180hp and could not "feel" a
difference in acceleration or handling
(though I don't mean to suggest that
the Neon is a better car!). However,
the wind noise at 55mph or above is
awful. I plan on keeping this vehicle
to play with when I replace it with a
new Audi or Porsche, etc.

Fun to Drive, Peppy, 4Doors a great asset,
back seat plenty of room, back seat split also
used quite a few times.
Love the cloth seats, and sun roof when it
worked. It's broken twice, fortunately broke
closed. Use my MP3 Player in the cassette
player slot which I cannot do with a CD.
Had a blown head gasket, and two sun roof
I still love driving it the head gasket was
repaired after warranty ran out, but actually
started to leak before warranty was up, but
didn't realize what it was.

I have had a horrible time with my
neon. I have had trouble with the
electrical system. The radio is known
to turn on by itself without the car
even on. The dash board, head lights,
etc. will on occasion not work as well.
Next, the sunroof stopped working.
Finally, the transmission went at
49,000 miles.This is not what I would
consider a reliable car.
