2004 Dodge Neon Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had a wonderful bright red neon. Unfortunately I got in an accident (not my fault) a couple weeks ago and due to the low value of the car the small damage to it totaled the car. Although, my car was hit and it spun a 180 and ran into a curb and all I've got is a bruise on my leg. Pretty good I'd say. If you're a safe driver and you want something reliable and cute with great mpg, get a neon (especially if you're a bit low on cash). I only had the base model and it was a great little car.


Favorite Features

speed and handling, mpg, snazzy design, reliable.


Suggested Improvements

kinda loud inside (especially on frway), value depreciates real quick.

2004 Dodge Neon Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

In most buys, I would say you get what you pay for. But, this car offers great features at a relatively low price. However, the low cost is evidenced by a few minor things such as manual rear windows. But, these are definitely made up for by the look and performance of the vehicle. First thing I did was put Bosh Platinum 4 spark plugs which increased my gas mileage and performance. I get anywhere between 32-35 mpg with this car. My only parts repair has been the starter so far and I have owned the vehicle since it only had 28,000 mi on it. Due to no under carriage, I destroyed my motor from high water. Totally my fault, but I (quite easily) put a new engine in and it runs great


Favorite Features

Drives Fast, Easy to Modify, Love the look of the stereo and shifting panels matching the exterior color, Excellent Handling, Allow Rims


Suggested Improvements

Stain Resistant Seats, High Depreciation (don't buy this car expecting to resale it, this is a car that should be paid off and used to drive while you save money for your next car)

Review

I purchased my 2004 Dodge Neon new and now have over 210,000 miles. The only maintenance other than routine, has been the replacement of ball joints and the sway bar link and bushings. If they still made this car I would buy it all over again.


Favorite Features

The car handles well in all weather.


Suggested Improvements

I love this car as is, no improvements necessary.

Review

Had this baby for little over 2 years and I love it, not sure what most people are complaint about if you keep up with normal maintenance it should be fine in my two years of owning it I've put almost 30,000 miles on it and haven't had a thing go wrong with it except changing the battery. Great car to start with as long as its an 02 or newer neon. I'll agree with the others, I wish they kept making it I would buy another one :)


Favorite Features

Sporty exterior and interior look was about 19 when I got it so I thought it was awesome as I had added window tint, an exhaust tip, and a system in it with LEDs to match the cars color made this car amazing


Suggested Improvements

Only improvements is probably the transmission cuz it doesn't shift real well, mileage could be better for as small as the car is lol over love it though

Review

It was fun to drive, quick little car. BUT, It fell apart, right around 100, 000 kms everything goes wrong, like the tire rod, cam shaft sensor, o2 sensor and many many more. I had so many problems. I just really want to warn everyone and anyone to not buy this car, it will only be a head ache. save yourself and get a honda


Favorite Features

none


Suggested Improvements

quality, reliability, and overall better the car
