Bought an SXT neon with the 4 speed
automatic trans everyone complains
about. It is quite a bit slower than
the manual, but about the same as other
automatics in it's class and not all
that slow. Passing power is very good.
Gas mileage isn't that good. About 23
mpg. It could be better. It's a
pleasure to drive this car. It handles
like a sports car and the brakes are
incredible. Try one - you'll like it.
all the standard power features and the
stereo is awesome. The interior space
is tremendous, my favorite feature was
the price. THOUSANDS less than other
cars we looked at.
Definitely gas mileage needs to be
improved. Also, the trans does seem
sluggish from a standing start. Rear
