1999 Dodge Neon Coupe Highline 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

It's cute as can be! Sexy looking for a car! Love the simplicity of dashboard controls. Great on gas! Comfort is nice too.


Worst Features

Perhaps more of a rear view when looking behind you (blind spot).

1999 Dodge Neon Coupe R/T 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

Reliable, fun to drive, economical and has a sporty look.


Worst Features

Instrument cluster should have benefited from a factory recall years ago. Moonroof track system has a very short lifespan. 5-spd shifter is inconveniently close to the dash..a loose coat sleeve can pull the car out of gear while messing with the stereo.

1999 Dodge Neon Coupe Competition 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

The line of mods that can be put on.


Worst Features

Put an iceman cold air intake, an exaust, afermarket manifold, and rims.

1999 Dodge Neon Coupe Sport 2dr Coupe


Review

Good car until about 60,000 miles, lots of rattles. Everything starts wearing out. $2000 in repairs in the last year. I would not buy another used one, or a new one if it's only gonna last 60,000 miles.


Best Features

Exterior styling


Worst Features

Better build quality needed.

Review

Loved the look of these R/Ts when they came out and had been very pleased with my 4 door Neons purchased in 1995 and 1998. It's sharp, comfortable and responsive. Good road manners even on a long drive. 5 speed is a joy to shift. My only disappointment; I don't think this car is as quick as it should be, although I'm not one to pound on equipment either.


Best Features

Exterior appearance, seating, 5 speed transmission.


Worst Features

Could use improvement in "low end" engine performance. A bit peaky and not as quick overall as it should be.
