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


This year it seems that DaimerChrysler has put a little more work into the Neon's styling, especially in offering the new SXT model which incorporates many sporty features such as a cd player, 6-speaker stereo, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, aluminum wheels, keyless entry and a rear spoiler standard at a discounted price (compare price of equally equipped SE model). I opted to purchase the 5 Speed Manual transaxle for the extra acceleration it provides- almost 5 seconds faster to 60mph than the 4 Speed Automatic.

Best Features

The sporty white-faced gauges were a nice touch as was the body color painted dash trim. The updated front and rear clip are very pleasing to the eye. The car feels very secure and nimble during turns and hard braking and the available In-Dash 6 CD Changer is a wonderful convenience.

Worst Features

The current 4-Speed Automatic transaxle is painfully sluggish and does not seem to properly exploit the engines power curve peak. The SXT also would have done well to have included dual exhaust exits and SXT front door badging.
