in 2006 i bought a 02 r/t with 150k i have never had a problem out of the car and the previouse owner did not either. in fact the factory battery last up till the spring of 09. car is fun to drive very comforatable inside. has decent acceleration, not so bad MPG. for how much they cast it is a great car. beats the cost to own a 00- 03 civic to!

I traded my Jeep Cherokee for a 2002 Neon R/T 4 cyl 5 speed. bad move. the gas milage was better, but the car was not. The wheel bearing needed replacing, all my electronics shut off one day on the highway, including my spedometer and gauges, on top of that, my e-brake failed, and the brakes were trash. I was just in an accident yesterday, and the whole front end was demolished. (at 25 mph) The airbags never deployed, and the brakes didnt want to work til the last second when it was too late. do yourself a favor and stay away from Neons. I thought the R/T would be a good one, but I was wrong. Thanks dodge.

Wonderful baby. I had a 1995 coupe and it sold me to purchase this 2002 sedan r/t. I love everything about it. Great car for interior and exterior room, gas mileage, handling and head-room. This is a very stylish car too. The price for this car is great for everyones average budget. I strongly recommend it for everyone.
A four-speed automatic gearbox replaces the archaic three-speed unit, a new base model is introduced, as is a value-packed SXT. Both SE and ES trims are relegated to fleet-only sales, and all 2002 Dodge Neons get a new "Dodge-signature" (crosshair-style) front end.
