2002 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I liked it at first, don't get me wrong. I've had the car for a year. The sunroof has already broken once. My volume radio gets louder when I try to turn it down. The brakes squeak something awful. And what's up with the rattling? It sounds like my used Cavalier I had seven years ago!!


Best Features

I love the CD changer and the sunroof. My kids say the car looks cool. They are 4 and 2.


Worst Features

It would be nice if the rear passenger doors had power windows. The gears for the manual transmission also need to be fine tuned. It's extremely "choppy".

2002 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The Neon is one of the best cars ive been in when it comes to wrecks. On Nov.7 2003 i was in a wreck in one the guy that hit us was doing 40 mph and distroyed his car and held up like othing ive ever seen. it broke the back bumper and put a little buckle in the quarter panels but other then that it held up nice. If your a family person trying to find a safe car the neon is it.


Best Features

the reliabity, the performance the looks overall a nice car


Worst Features

bigger interior

2002 Dodge Neon SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car about a year ago with 17K. No repairs have been needed, just routine maint. It is really at its best on curvy roads, the suspension/tire combination handles the sharp turns well. Nice power when it is just me in the car but when it is loaded down I miss my'99 with the DOHC engine.


Best Features

Good handling, less noise thanks to the 4-speed trans and full frames around the windows.


Worst Features

The original Goodyear tires have not worn well and need to be replaced (30K). It was a rental so the tires could have been subject to some abuse before I got it. We will see how the Coopers perform.
