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
Remarkably roomy with very good seats
Great handling, and the 4 speed trans
makes the car feel so much better than
earlier ones I drove as a rental. Now
has 27000 miles and no hint of squeak or
rattle, except for squeaky brakes which
I hear is common problem with Neons.
NOTE: I bought mine one year old--SE
so has power wind/lk/mirrors--for just
$8,600. Nearly new Neons seem to have
terrible resale value, so perfect cars
to buy used. Unless you are even
fussier than I am, buy one used and save
Very good seats, exterior style,
handling is almost sporty
Seems as if should get better gas
mileage--for such a small car
I like my Neon. It is sporty and fun
to drive. I have not had any major
problems yet at 19,000 miles.
Compared to others in it's price range--
CD Sound system is awesome! Truly one
of the best features of the car.
Sporty but roomy 4-door car.
squeeking at 15,000 miles. I was told
nothing was wrong by the dealer and an
independant brake shop. I was told
after market parts would get rid of the
noise but also cost around $500. I want
a recall on the brakes.
I love my little red neon! I just
bought it this week due to my saturn
(which I loved as well) being totaled
in a car accident. It is perfect for
me being a college student, yet it is
still o so cute and fun to drive! Gas
is ok...not as good as my saturn, but
that's what happens when you upgrade a
little. If you are looking for an
inexpensive, yet fun and cute
car...the Neon is the way to go!
She's red! With black interior (my
favorite) and she has a cute spoiler
and allow wheels! AND a 5 CD changer!
Who could ask for more!?
I haven't had the car long, but it has
been wonderful so far. The body design
is sleek, the car runs beautifully, and
the interior is quite comfortable (my
last car was a '72 VW Beetle). Very
much worth the money.
Nice interior, good gas mileage. Great
for college students like me.
