1999 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan


Review

The first 6 years went fine. In 2005 all the problems started, the car stalled half a dozen times between repeated trips to the dealership. They replaced the head gasket, timing belt, starter cables, spark plugs, ignition cables, rear main seal. Finally, they found a faulty relay due to the AC compressor which also was replaced. In Feb 2007 the vehicle would not start. Guess what? They replaced the fuel pump too. I've spend over $5000 in repairs. Now the vehicle stalls intermittently, the engine hesitates and jerks. The hp is gone. Do not buy this vehicle. It's proof that domestic vehicles are absolute junk. The Neon was so bad it was discontinued after the 2005 model. Nightmare!


Best Features

Well, I would have to say the vehicle was definitely quite roomy. Lots of leg and head room. Good overall suspension.


Worst Features

Too many to list.

Review

The only thing that I don't really like is auto transmission and the mirror in the driver's side visor. The 3 speed just isn't quick enough.


Best Features

Visibility.


Worst Features

Power.

Review

This is my first car, but my last
choice. I bought it in Ohio where there
are virtually no hills. The real test
would be the roads in New York my new
home. It has surpassed all of my
expectations. It handles the roads
here with no problems, also easy to
handle with the front-wheel drive in
the snow, easy and fun to drive and
still looks brand new. If you take care
of it, it will serve you well. The only
problem was the moon roof motor had to
be replaced a year later. The overall
performance is great unless the air
conditioning is on. It is a great
first choice. When I decide to buy
another car, I will not trade this one
in.


Best Features

The front wheel drive is great. It got me out of a many snow piles. It's the best.


Worst Features

I think that the windows in the back seat area should be power windows, because when I'm in the car alone and want to put one of the back windows down, it's virtually impossible and dangerous to reach from the front while driving.
