2001 Dodge Neon Highline SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
For those who are knocking the 2001 Neon,
just take a look at the maintenance costs
compared to the Japanese models. I used
to have a 1995 Neon which had some problems
but it made it to 150K with the only
costs being A/C issues and a bad head
gasket design (new design worked okay).
I previously had a Toyota Celica and
replacing the muffler, tires, etc. was
minimally double what it costs on the Neon.
Yes, there were some nuisances, but they
are all taken care of in the 2001 model.
No rain through the door jam, no squeaky
brakes when moist, road noise down
almost completely, windows tight, more
"containers", brighter headlamps, etc.
I love my 2001 SE.
fold down back seats for trunk use, Sun roof,
brighter headlamps, I love everything they
fixed in the previous design, map lights.
Bigger glove compartment, better gas
mileage, offer cassette/CD player
without having 6-CD trunk access.
