At 7,000 miles, I took my Neon in
because I was leaving a puddle of
coolant wherever I went. There was
also a 'knocking' in the steering
column which was explained to me as
some sort of rusted out pin that holds
the steering column in place.
Since then, wonderful smooth sailing.
I hear everyone on the engine noise
thing, I test drove a Civic, a
Cavalier, and a Golf before buying
this Neon new. The Neon was the
loudest of them in my opinion, but the
dealership gave me the best offer for
my trade-in, by several thousand-and
they were much friendlier about
answering my questions.
I love the handling, very fun to
drive. Whoa--love the gas mileage, the
sound system. Very fun. Very happy,
my next car will be one of the new
Could use a little more 'get up and
go'. Those WRXs are leaving me in the
dust. Also, if someone could fix the
dreaded, 4-cyl. 'trying to pass on the
highway with the air conditioning on'
syndrome, that would be great.
