I purchased my Neon SXT back in March
of this year, and thus far, all is
The basic design, comfort and build
quality are excellent for the price
The seats and interior room house my
6'3" frame quite well, and the dash
layout is a model of organization (if
not materials quality).
The auto tranny is awful however, and
the gas mileage has never risen to my
expectations for the car.
Beyond all such simple reviews
however, has been the car's durability
and build quality. While I have only
placed 11,000 miles on the odometer,
those miles have been squeek, rattle
and mechanical failings free. If the
car remains reliable, I would
wholeheartedly reccomend this car!
Features for the money, dash
design/layout, unique styling,
interior space and storage, (Thus far)
seemingly sound build quality.
Upgrade the disgraceful interior
materials (!)(The dashboard plastic
appears as if it were Armor-All'd at
the factory!). The clunky and poorly
ratioed (auto) tranny needs retuning
if not outright replacement.
