O. K, I have a 2002 Dodge neon. My brother gave it to me because the tranny went out. So I got it rebuilt for 1500 dollars. Now I still have it, when I turn sharply enough the engine light comes on, then goes off when I straighten up. It shakes bad on the highway and when I get to 55. The alternators going up, hopefully no time soon, but the lights on. Um, I got a performance muffler and took the airbox off and a performance air filter, so when I give it some gas it sounds excellent; for a 4 cylinder. My recommendation though... Get another car. Why spend 3250 on this when you can get a civic or something?
... um, the sound. That I had to buy aftermarket. So technically, nothing. lol
Bigger engine, more reliability. Make it a tad bigger but no more weight.
