Beware of Bad Transmission

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


bought my neon at a cheaper type of lot it was 5 yrs old with 75000 miles. Red Flag should of went up when they said no warrenty not even 30 days. It took 2 months a hose ripped off the radiator and stripped it so it needed a new radiator. $400.00. then after 1 year the transmission when out. This was not cheap, $2,400. The mechanic says neons have a transmission flaw with this year. Even after it was fixed, the transmission acted funny every time the air conditioner was on. So I don't use the air conditioner anymore. I don't think the car will last much longer. I wouldn't even give it to a kid. If you have a neon get rid of it after it is 5 years old. These are throw away cars.

Best Features

Nice looking from the outside.

Worst Features

IF this car was mean't to be a cheap car, why do they charge so much for it. They should of recalled this car for the transmission defect.
