I've owned a Neon before and let me say that they are much improved over the years. I love the newer body style. I love the stereo. Actually I put a 8 inch Rockford Fosgate bass tube in the trunk...and wow is it loud...really turns heads! I love the color...I got the red...so pretty. Really a nice car for only around $15,000.00!
Stereo, all the power options, the shifter is very smooth, loving the interior..especially the splash of color on the dash area.
Don't expect to get that 36 mpg freeway. I am lucky to get 33. For the most part it averages between 26 city and 32 highway.
