Review of the 1998 Plymouth Neon

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Zippy performance with 5-speed. Handles the twisties with aplomb. Good build quality. Great value.

    Loud interior. High-silled greenhouse results in that "sitting in a bathtub" feeling. Sketchy reliability history.

    California and other emission-regulating states get an LEV (Low Emission Vehicle) engine calibration. Also changed this year are ABS, a new ignition key lock and the addition of four new colors.

I hate my car

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Neon Highline 2dr Coupe

I've owned this car as a high school student just to drive around town, to and from school and work and that's about all it is good for. It is not a pleasure to drive, and I hate the way it looks, inside and out. It's a good first-car, but even then I wouldn't recommend it.




Low quality car

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Neon Highline 2dr Coupe

My fiancee has this car. It only has 62,000 miles on it and it looks, runs, and drives like it has 162,000 miles on it. It has rusted completely through already in some spots, it sounds horrible, and vibrates and shakes very bad. It only has a 3-speed automatic, so freeway cruising is at over 3000rpm, which makes for a very loud drive. The ride is very rough and unsettled.

Think twice before buying

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Neon Expresso 2dr Coupe

Like some of the others, I have had gaskets replaced numerous times and still they cant' get it right. I have had a sun roof that has been replace 3 times and is still broken which is not under warrenty and the dealer will not fix. The engine light comes on very every 3-4 months due to carbon build up on some sensor which the dealer can't seem to fixed. I would not reccommend this car to anyone. Buyer beware.




Great car

Since I bought my neon i have had no major trouble from it, just the regular maintenance. I do though have a problem with the wind noise from the window and the engine is underpowered at low rpm's.




Unhappy purchase

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Neon Highline 2dr Coupe

I have had nothing but problems with my purchase of my Neon. The head gasket blew at 13,000 miles only. The horn stopped working after a few months. The passenger side window was leaking. My lastest issue is the transmission! I only have 21,000 miles and now there are transmission problems! give me a break.. I have very little power with this car. It was a bad purchase overall.
