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.

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.

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.

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
I have very little power with this car.
It was a bad purchase overall.
