I just want to start off by saying, this car has been very great since I've had it. I have had it for almost 2 years. It is a 1999 and it only has 65,000 miles as of right now. The only problem that has happened since, is a leak in the break line, which was a very cheap fix. The car has great MPG and trunk space. I would recommend to an elderly woman or new driver!
The only thing I cannot stand about this car is the size. IT'S SO SMALL. I am not an extremely large person, but I am not tiny. It is very uncomfortable to drive. I am in the market for a new car because I can't handle how small this car is. I do not recommend this car to anyone who is a little overweight.
Trunk space is big, easy to drive, gets up to speed fast, gas mileage is great.
Well it's a little too late now, considering this is a 1999 and I don't know how the newer models are. But they could have made it a little more bigger. I understand it's an affordable car and is supposed to be very simple. But if you're over 5'4'' and weigh more than 150lbs, you'll struggle to get in and out.
i got a 99 dodge neon off craigslist,for $700.120k miles, so far its a bad deal,needs alot of work inside (radio) n out/under least i got aftermarket tail lights.still have the old ones just incase i get a newer model neon.my coworker has a 95 neon,her steering wheel thing tilt when mine dont,wtf! someone on the other shift then me owns a plymouth neon looks to be same yr look,theres is in better condition then mine.also i am useto driving a trailblazer my mom owned (2diff yrs she owned) they have cruise control, n power windows). for a neon its popular,i've seen many neons both ply's/ddg's.im a chevy gurl driving a dodge lol. ill repost in coming wks/months my review once i get her fixed u
says on here mine a manual,but mines actually a automatic with 5 speeds. size inside, love the roomy feel inside, i am the driver but just sitting in the back seat it feels comfy. access to the truck is good with flap down back seat supports i guess you call them.
about 3wks after i bought it, has bald tires, needs shocks/struts, new hood, turn signal (holder for it too), headlight, fender, wheel cylinder, brake line, fix rear window defroster, electrical issues (scares me) i cant play a cd/radio without the radio resetting itself. this car will be newer in few months. its my first car so i know it wont be the best car ever. needed an extra position closer to the steering wheel, n maybe ha more cushion to sit on on front seats im lil short from my shoulder to mywaist, mainly legs (track). also hate that i cant put large magnets on the truck, since the trunk is kinda curved....
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!!!!
Since summer 2010 I have put $2000+ dollars on that stupid car. First a bunch of gaskets blew, then it was the alternator, then it was the radiator, then the brakes, then finally the water pump...which doesn't seem like a big deal for any other car, but on a neon you have to take out the whole engine just to replace it. A $20 part turned into a $500 job. I used to love driving my car, but now when I drive it I am constantly listening for weird sounds and wondering about when it will break down next. The day the transmission goes will be the day that I scrap the car for parts. I wouldn't wish this car on my worst enemy.
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.
It's cute as can be! Sexy looking for a car! Love the simplicity of dashboard controls. Great on gas! Comfort is nice too.
Perhaps more of a rear view when looking behind you (blind spot).
