Review of the 1999 Dodge Neon

    Zippy performance with 5-speed and DOHC engine. Handles the twisties with aplomb.

  • Cons

    Loud interior. High-silled greenhouse results in that "sitting in a bathtub" feeling. Sketchy reliability history.

Great little car

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Neon Highline 2dr Coupe

My husband and I inherited this car in 2002 with about 10,000 mi. Now it is a little over 39,000 and has had very little problems. Is just starting to. Have a major oil leak & had new cam shank sensor put in. Getting 2 belts & new valve gasket. Is very good on gas. I've driven highways long & short drives & it never failed me. If it only had a CD player and faster start-up it would be perfect! I chose to keep this car over 95 Nissan Maxima fully loaded to sell for husband's funeral, and am glad I chose to keep the Neon. Is a nice ride.

Love my r/t

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Neon R/T 2dr Coupe

I'm more than happy with my '99 Neon R/T. It handles very nicely and with regular maintenance has been extremely reliable. I avg around 25 mpg in town and 37 mpg highway (all of which is at an elevation of 3500 ft or higher)on 87 octane reg gas. Head gasket blew at the 3 yr mark but dealer covered it. Headlights dull badly with age but aftermarket polishing helps. Seems to burn out an O-2 sensor every few years and the moonroof tracks have both broken once despite minimal use. Biggest problem (chronic to Neons) is the intermittent failure of the instrument cluster (due, I'm told, to poor solder connections). All in all this car has been incredibly reliable, fun to drive and economical.

Coupe competition

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Neon Competition 2dr Coupe

The Neon is fast, but my fuel economy is bad. Other than that, the car is excellent. For a small car, it is roomy and comfortable.
