2005 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

In what parallel universe does this car get supposed good fuel economy? I have put a lot of money keeping this car in the best shape, I don't drive it in a gas-wasting sort of way, and I usually only get around 20/22mpg on a tank-- and that is with freeway driving as well. It's like driving a small tank, especially in contrast to non-American compact equivalents. It does zip along quite quickly on flat roads, depending on the weather. Positive: I feel pretty safe driving it (in terms of how solid it is), and the trunk is quite roomy. Lastly: God forbid you turn the a/c on- the mpg goes to around 16mpg

Best Features

cubbies, trunk size, stereo speakers

Worst Features

reliability, better fuel economy, no more squeaky brakes (which I am told is just "something Neons do" by the service department), turning radius
