I got this car used last year for just under $5,000. I wanted a small automatic sports car that is fast and good gas mileage and this is the closest i could get to that description. it's not fancy car but its good for taking long drives and not eating up gas. i always liked looking at the Dodge SRT-4 but since I don't know how to drive manual the Dodge Neon was just as awesome.
good gas mileage, small, accelerates quickly, sporty looking, enough room inside
to be able to open the trunk without shutting the car down since you have to use the key, no light in the trunk, sometimes the car stalls for a moment when traffic slows and it goes from fast to slower
