By Charles on
2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I have not owned this car long but I have have had bad experience with this car.My first problems when i travling from L.A. to San Diego.Car started backfiring and losing a lot of power. This car had 1200 miles.The engine light came on.I was forced to leave the vehicle at a local dealership. I was stranded 50 miles from my destination.There roadside assistance was no help.My second bad experience when I was traveling to work same problem occurred.It appears the Barwick Auto Group tech did not fix the problem.I decided to bring the car to Rancho Auto grp. It apears the problems are coming from the crankcase sensor.I p/u car from Rancho Auto. Third time same problem-only 1800 mi on car.
Car is very fun to drive when it is operating. Very powerful sporty and fast.
Based on my experience, I do not trust the car for the long haul. Maybe I got the LEMON. However, I lost all confidence in the vehicle. According to the California Lemon law. They should replace the vehicle or give me my money back. They refused. Now I'll probably never buy a Chrysler product.
