Great car, needs more juice

2003 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


First off, this car is definitely worth the money, just for interior space alone. I'm somewhere in the 6'7" to 6'8" range and I still fit comfortably (albeit with the seat all the way back and tilted a bit). I've also driven it about 33,000 miles and no problems at all other than the occasional flat (weird tire size, Walmart doesn't even carry them). This car's one main drawback is it's not very quick off the line, no real torque. Luckily, the Neon is a sport compact tuner car, so lots of performance parts are made to remedy this, if you have the money for em. Speakers are incredible, I don't even have the urge to switch them out. All in all, a great car for the money.

Best Features

Great use of interior space, comfortable seats, incredible sound, reasonable price. The mileage is pretty close to advertised, too. Manual tranny is a lot of fun (a bit soggy, but not bad).

Worst Features

More power. This thing looks like it can really move, if only it could get some low end torque. As other people say, the A-frame is too wide, hurts forward visibility. Breaks need to not squeak when wet. Get a normal tire size.
