2001 Dodge Neon Highline SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car over 2 years ago and have had no major problems with it. Handles great, no leaks, smooth ride, and easy to maintain. I have already 75K on this car and it seems to get better the more I drive it. Couple minor things, factory wheels are 195- 50-16s. Very had to find and expensive tire. Also, highway gas mileage runs from 30 to 40mpg plus. City mileage however is only 20 to 25. And it has a small 12 gallon gas tank. Sound system is great but my speakers blew out 3 months ago and I had to get new ones. Mostly my fault I guess. Overall, best car I have owned.
Highway gas mileage. If you have a steady downhill drive and a good tail wind, you can easily get 40mpg plus. Even on rough terrian it's still over 30. Smooth ride. Feels like driving on a sheet of glass.
Get a factory tire that is easier to find and cheaper.
