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!
Bucket Seats, Fold down rears, sporty look
power rear windows. stonger motor maybe a 2.2 magnum instead of of 2.0 mag.
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.
The dual exhaust was cool. Thats it really.
Better brakes, better transmission, better electronics, pretty much a do- over of the whole car.
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.
I love everything about this car not just one thing.
Better handling for wet and raining conditions. Due to the fact that if you put on your brakes fast, this car will slide.
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.
I've had a great time with this car. I'm 36
yeas old and still a kid. I've done some bolt
on mods like intake, exaust, springs, and so
on. Great car and cheap fun. The 87 12 sec.
shelby charger sits in the garage next to it.
Thicker carpet, update the dated shifter and
