I bought my Neon new in 2003, and for the most part, enjoyed it. I've had some rough idling issues which were covered under the powertrain warranty, but other than that no major repairs. Considering I spend about $12,000 for the car, it's been well worth the money. I'd definitely take a look at this car if you're looking for a commute vehicle. I probably average about 28 mpg with 85% highway/15% city driving. Not bad at all!
Good gas mileage. Fun to drive. Sporty looking.
Chrysler/Dodge need to start making small car hybrids. I'd love to see a Caliber hybrid.
