My Neon is a great fun car because it gets great gas mileage, 35 mpg hiway and 33 in town. Its AC system works great even on 115 degree days cooling the cab fast. I drive this car 95 miles to work and back 6 days a week.

Bought my Neon used and had no problems the first couple of years. Then it started leaking oil and had a lot of electrical problems. Radio has not worked for 5 years. The speedometer and gas gauge not working properly. I bought a new car this year, so I am finally going to sell mine, if anyone will buy it.

My poor 1996 Plymouth Neon . . . it
has needed SO MANY expensive repairs.
I don't know if it is just a lemon, or
if that make and model is just crap.
I feel like it was a cheap car to
begin with, and now that it is older,
it is very unreliable and I plan to
get rid of it. It ends up in the shop
every couple of months needing $500+
Antilock brakes are optional across the line, and base models get more standard equipment for 1996. A value-packed Expresso package is aimed at 20-something first-time buyers. A base coupe is newly available, and all Neons are supposedly quieter than last year. A power moonroof joins the options list, and a remote keyless entry system with panic alarm is available.
