I'm one of those who must own a car every three years. All but one have been Neons, and the latest is definitely the best. Noise level is drastically reduced. Gas mileage is excellent. Its wide wheel base hugs curves beautifully. Its pep makes it so much fun to drive! You think its small engine can't do much, but hit the interstate and take it to 70mph, and you'll see it really get up and go. There's still some road noise, but the awesome stereo takes care of that. The recent exterior redesign makes it look sharper than ever, and I love my car's electric blue color. It's a great car for a low price!
Great standard features, like rear defrost and a kickin' stereo. Nice add-ons like keyless entry, sunroof and a sport package. Excellent gas mileage. Great around curves, lots of pep. It throttles up when asked.
Still could reduce the road noise a bit more. Back seats could use a bit more padding.
