2003 Dodge Neon Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car about a year ago and have put 30,000 miles on it since I purchased. I got it with 35k and the only maintenance I've really had to do was oil changes. I also did plugs and wired at 60k and rear brake, but thats all. They didn't really have to be done, but did them anyway. I'm a service technician and a BMW shop and I love my neon. Do want a little more pep, but can't complain about the get- up and go with this car, especially considering the 39 mpg I get on road trips. Simply love this car!


Best Features

Looks, 6 disc changer


Worst Features

What's up with the power front and rear manual windows. no other complaints, bring this beast back!

2003 Dodge Neon Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just bought a 2003 R/T and it's really fun to drive. Good performance from the engine, although it could use a little more power. Many aftermarket parts are available to increase horsepower if you want that though. This is a great car to drive that feels like a sports car, and at a low cost compared to others of the same type. An especially good value if you buy it used like I did, only 24,000 miles and a fraction of the original cost.


Best Features

High performance engine, steering and braking ability.


Worst Features

Lowered body, larger wheels, wider tires. Since they're not making Neons anymore, this won't happen. The SRT-4 had larger tires and wheels that should have been standard on the R/T.

2003 Dodge Neon Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am a 2 time owner of the Neon R/T model. First was a 99 R/T sedan, which I loved. The car was great, only issue was the head gasket. Now I've had my 03 for over a year and I'm as in love with this car more and more every day. Reliability GREAT, Looks GREAT, Performance GREAT, Options GREAT. I love to drive, but I also have a family. This car puts a smile on your face through the twisties and hulls the family in class and comfort. Class is something the 99 fell short on, but not this little lady. Buy one you won't regret it.


Best Features

The whole thing.


Worst Features

If they would have just lowered the stance in the rear from the factory. The high stance makes all Neons look like they have a big butt.

2003 Dodge Neon Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought a new Neon R/T with all the
toys from a delaer for $13,500. While
it may be 2 years old in a few months,
it's still a new car to me since I
keep one for about 5-6 years anyway.
The '03 has more legroom and creature
comforts than my old '98 did. The
magnum engine has as much h.p. as the
old 2.0 DOHC, but sounds quieter under
load. The 4-wheel discs stop it quite
well. The 5-speed makes this pocket
rocket a blast to drive and the
Goodyear P195/50R16's make it grab in
the corners. I'll be upgrading the
tires to Bridgestone's as soon as I
wear the OEM Goodyear's out. All in
all, I am very pleased with the Neon
R/T.


Best Features

Leather interior, 6-disc CD changer, Moon Roof, 5-speed tranny, 2.0 Magnum engine, cruise control.


Worst Features

Can't complain about any!

Review

Bought my wife a 1998 neon with all
the goodies, 5-sp, DOHC, moonroof,
etc, and she's loved it. Couldn't talk
her into trading for a Honda with a 6
cyclinder. Then it was totaled.
We're now buying an '03 R/T with ALL
the goodies for $14,500 drive-out, and
she's excited. Leather, moonroof,
etc. I put Bridgestone BT70S on her
old Neon and it cornerd like it was on
rails! Can't wait to slap Potenza's
on this new car. Only problem I ever
had with the '98 was the infamous
headgasket, but it was fixed under
warranty. Love to drive this car!


Best Features

Body design, engine reliability, handeling, economy.


Worst Features

Wish all four doors were power.
