I bought this car new for a second
vehicle. The car now had over 68,000
miles and dependability has been
outstanding. The only repair
maintenance needed was to replace the
rear brake pads and the dealer replaced
a trunk spring under warranty that
would not hold up the trunk lid. If
there is a disappointment it is the gas
milage, I'm getting 24MPG with an
automatic transmission and I thought I
would get better. When I buy a car to
replace it, a new Neon will be at the
top of my list.
The car is flat out fun to drive. I've
owned sports cars but I've never had
more fun driving a car than this one.
Plenty of power for a car in this
class. More than generous rear seat
room, nothing else in the class came
Excessive wind and road noise, but I
knew it when I bought the car. Brakes
are a little too squeaky.
