Review of the 2002 Dodge Neon

  • While fun to drive, the 2002 Dodge Neon lacks the polish and refinement found in other cars in the economy car segment.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Competent handling, large interior, affordable price.

  • Cons

    Engine lacks refinement, weak frontal offset crash-test scores.

  • What's New for 2002

    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.

The silver bullet

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Neon R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

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!




Please stay away from neons.

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Neon R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

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.




Great bargain and fun to

Only a few problems. It was a month before a bad clutch cyl went bad, fixed ok since. Radio went bad around 20,000. Reverse back up sensor went bat around 30,000.




Good car for the dough

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Neon R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

For the price it doesn't get much better. Comes with a very high top speed for smaller car. Very fun to drive. Only complaint is thins are starting to raddle at 13000 miles.




All around winner

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Neon R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I researched the Neon R/T and other cars in it's class and found no other car with such good looks (inside and outside), features and performance for the price. The car is truely loaded and with a little extra money you can get a truely great sound system and sunroof! But the best part is driving it. The car is quick the steering and braking systems are excellent and the suspension is perfectly tuned.
