I bought this Neon as my first car, and as a teenage guy I wasn't sure I wanted such a wimpy car. Well, I have had it over a year now, and I love it to death. I have had two small problems with it, the starter motor gave out, and the power locks are giving out. Other than that, it has been a great car. I love the stock sound system, the 6X9's in the back are awesome, but I did put in a new head unit, and now it sounds even better. I also put new hubcaps on becuase the stock ones where hideous. (the graffiti interior pattern is also very ugly, but seat covers can fix that). Great car if you want to put a little bit of creativity into it.

This was my second car ever. Went in, had a fun drive with it, and bought it. Only major issue was the head gasket leak which was caused by a poor design. Replaced the old head gasket with a new MLS one, no problem since. A minor issue was a new valve cover gasket replaced after 75k miles. $30 and 30 minutes in your driveway will take care of this, no big deal. This was my first Neon of two and I plan on buying another. They're fairly common part cars and easy to fix. I love the DOHC engine but the 3-speed automatic can be a slouch at times. Keep up with your oil changes and a Neon will last you a long time.

I've driven my car across the country a few
times, and after 175,000, it's still running
great. For the most part, it's been reliable and
fun to drive. I've had to make two semi-major
repairs ($500 each), but that seems pretty
good considering the mileage. I would
imagine anyone who takes care of this car
having an enjoyable experience.

When I first went to buy a car I was
looking for a used Toyota. The
dealership told me about a good deal
they had running on Neon's. I almoast
turned around and walked out, thinking
the Neon was a "disposable car" but I
decided to try it. The only 5 speed
they had on the Lot was a tricked out
expresso with most of the goodies. As
soon as I got it out on the road, the
car was sold. Recently 4/03 I traded
it for a Toyota corolla, (Big Mistake)
repairable mistake thank goodness.
