Almost 2 years of ownership and no major problems. The rear brakes squeak when damp--dealer says they all do that. Gas mileage consistently 33. Most comfortable seats of any car I've owned--drove 12 hours straight without an ache! Sound system is awesome for the car's price. Ride is decent. Visibility out is poor--wide A-pillar; high spoiler. Very solid--not a squeak or rattle. Great highway cruiser.
Sound system, seat comfort, heater & A/C, bang for the buck, nice sunroof, big trunk (although opening is small).
Need smaller windshield pillars and lower spoiler; road noise is excessive; turning circle too wide; low budget upholstery and floor mats.
I have had this car for 16 months and
23000 miles. Ride and handling are very
good. Very reliable, awesome styling,
especially for a single mom with two boys
ages 13 and 9. They LOVE this car.
Mileage is great; I routinely get 30+
mpg and that is normal driving, no
highways. This car is a 5 speed. I'm
smiling all the way to the gas pumps!
For a front wheel drive sporty car, it
is the best handling car I've had in
the snow and winter weather. And this car
does not have ABS either.
Styling, sound system, traction in
winter weather. GAS MILEAGE. Price.
Two cup holders for rear seat passengers
without having to flip back the center
console lid. Cell phone holder area. The
little flat area above the heater vents
is too slippery. Better rotors. Mine
have been replaced twice.
Somewhere along the way I heard the
Neon is a throw-away car. Something to
get you from point A to B...no frills.
Well I was wrong! This car has been
wonderful the past year. The little
car really has some get up and go for
a 2.0! Nothing like the doggy 1.9
liter in a Ford or Saturn. It gets
good gas milage about 26mpg. The radio
sounds great! Not tinny like in some
cheaper cars. This car is as
dependable as it is fun! I live in MN
where it has gotten to -15 and the car
still started with no problems. It
even handles good in the snow and ice.
CD player(good sound), Remote trunk
pop, Good pick-up
All 4 windows power-front are only
power...the rear are crank
For shorter drivers I feel as if I'm
sitting on the floor, I cannot see hood
and visibility, frame thickness between
windows, has almost cost me 3 wrecks in
1 1/2 years. The gas milage they
advertise is not quite accurate.;-( And
it has locked me out with car running
with the electronic door lock settings!
Please keep spare key handy!When cold
the engine has a loud tick as if ready
to throw a rod and the brakes squeal
when wet or cold. They say this is
normal? Why only front power windows?
And the front window keeps coming off
track. Glove box too small can barely
fit gloves and owners manual inside!
And a real neck breaker to view cd
changer.Impossible to clean between
Cute! A real looker! Has get up and
go.Love the trunk access through back
seats. Love front side window
Thinner framing around windows to see
around corners. Bigger space between
seats so you can get a cleaning tool
in.Bigger glove box! Could get better
gas milage for a 4 cylinder. Make
drivers seat with a lifter and more
head room! More head room!
